Case Studies


This section contains case studies of good practice involving volunteers in language learning. The cases studies are designed so that they can be easily copied. As such, we’ve arranged them under a number of headings: Project description, Strengths of the project, How to set it up and Support and coordination of the volunteers. Lastly, the Three top tips provide behind-the-scenes knowledge.
