Language Lab

In our Language Lab in the heart of Barcelona we offer a wide range of free language classes for members of our NGO (individuals and organisations). Our membership for those who want to follow the classes is only 10 euros per month, or as a company you subscribe to have your employees join. Please find all information below, including the link to become a member.

What can you expect?

  • Voluntary, enthusiastic teachers, some experienced and some in the beginning phase of their teaching career
  • Learning materials, but please bring your own writing materials or laptop to keep notes etc.
  • A great atmosphere in our Cultural Center, where you will meet people from all over the world
  • To make an impact: your contribution as a member is directly used for our projects in Spain and Greece.

Start of new classes: July 2021.

We are currently teaching fully online but with some in-person language exchange activities.

A great way to learn new languages while also getting to know new people from different countries and cultures!

Integration and community building through our classes

While for instance the Spanish classes are given by locals, many of the other classes are given by refugees or migrants who have arrived in Barcelona. Through teaching, they can gain professional teaching experience in a foreign language, feel empowered and become independent.

How do we teach?

We use two main tools to teach our classes and grow our language-exchange community:

  • Slack: to talk to other students, with teachers, ask questions between classes and find other useful information.
  • Google Meet: to have the online classes and be in direct contact with your teachers and fellow students.

At the same time, we organise in-person language exchange events, for instance in a park or at our center, and you can also ask other language learners to join you in an improvised language exchange!
