In many or all of our partner countries the amount of German speakers is very low. Since we do not want to restrict the group of applicants down to the very small group of those who already is able to communicate in German, language skills in German are no precondition. When a volunteer is accepted to our program, we support the formation of a language tandem with German-speaking people in their home country. This supports the process of learning the basic vocabulary before starting the voluntary service. After arriving in Germany, the volunteers continuously receive language lessons.
