Learning English


Upcoming event: Volunteer Power Station

In our experience many newly arrived volunteers are interested because it gives them a chance to improve their English skills and in some cases their Irish!

There is nothing more rewarding in volunteering than being able to learn about different cultures and many voluntary placements are specifically orientated around promoting inter-culturalism and multi-cultural learning.

Do not worry if you English is not perfect, you can still volunteer. However, you will need a least a basic level of English to start volunteering. iVOL, the national volunteering database has volunteering opportunities for people with various levels of English. Remember, once you start volunteering your English will improve. We have searched iVOL for you and picked out suggestions for newcomers to Dublin. Check them out below.
