English Easy Partnership for Youth Exchange
There are a lot of young people and youth workers with great ideas which can be turned into real international projects. However, many of these ideas stay as a dream due to the lack of confidence to communicate in English as well as a lack of understanding how and what methods to use in communication process.
Aim of the training course is to increase confidence to carry out youth exchange projects in English.
