Seeking volunteers to converse in English

Cuenca English Lions Club is seeking volunteers to converse in English with Spanish speakers who want to improve their level of English conversation. Spread the word to your friends in Ecuador, in the United States, in Canada or other parts of the world to help us meet the needs of our students. Please Consider Volunteering as well.

The Conversational Spanish project currently has 5 volunteers working with 7 students. There are 33 students on a waiting list for classes. Currently there are 4 students ages 11-14 and 29 adults waiting for conversations.

We began the Conversational Spanish initiative in July in order to provide free one-on-one conversations in English with native Spanish speakers through Zoom or other Video platforms. The response has been positive and more than expected. 

As a volunteer English speaker, you:

• Choose the student or students from a list of people requesting conversations. (The list provides the person’s level of English along with times the student is available and their email address and/or WhatsApp number.)
• Choose dates and times for meetings to fit your schedule. 
• Communicate directly with the person to set up the conversation class.
• Determine the length of your commitment. 
• Notify Cuenca English Lions club of the person you chose for conversations so we don’t duplicate services and 
• Make a difference in the life or lives of your student all from the comfort of your home.

If you would like to participate in this program as a volunteer English speaker or have questions about this initiative please email us at Your participation is greatly appreciated.
