Are there any age limits for participating? You must be at least 18 years old to enroll. There is no upper age limit.
I am very bad at languages, can I manage with English at the projects? Maybe! In Malawi, Namibia and India, you can get by with speaking English…but it is always a big advantage for you that you to learn as much as you can of the local language or dialect. If you want to go to Mozambique, Angola or Guinea-Bissau, you must be able to understand and speak Portuguese.
Do I need to speak English to start the programme? You need to speak English fairly well to start. It is a very intensive course, with all educational materials and lessons and courses in English. Communication difficulties will set you back.
