We at SPEAK believe in the importance of building strong connections between our community members. Right now, this is more important than ever, as we are going through a situation where loneliness can affect more people than ever before.
Following the guidelines around the COVID-19, we are temporarily suspending our offline language groups. However, we are offering the opportunity to keep creating connections and learning a language online through intensive online groups.
Here is where you, as a buddy, can keep making a difference by continuing to create meaningful relationships among people who need it the most right now.
We are working hard to enable our community to connect online and we will start the intensive online groups soon. Groups will be led via Skype by one buddy, following this format:
Sessions are held 3 times a week (Monday to Sartuday), for 4 weeks. Each session is 90 minutes long. The groups will consist of 4 to 7 participants.
After that, we will get in touch with you to allocate you to a group and to give you access to different materials that will help you lead a group.
We intend to resume the traditional format of the sessions as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we will keep working on creating connections and supporting our community online. We want to thank you for your commitment and for being a member of the SPEAK community!
