Learn English in Ethiopia

If you're interested in volunteering in this destination, please contact us first before applying.

A traditional Ethiopian festival in Africa.

Ethiopia, in Eastern Africa, is a great destination for volunteers seeking to make an impact on the lives of people in need. It is also ideal for volunteers looking to improve their language skills, either in English or the local dialect, Amharic.

On the English Language Course in Ethiopia, you will receive an average of 15 hours of instruction per week, Monday to Friday. Depending on when you arrive, the classes may be private lessons or you may be in a small group with two or three other volunteers. Outside of class, you will have plenty of time to explore your surroundings and you can practice your conversational skills with your host family and other Projects Abroad volunteers. Projects Abroad volunteers come from a huge variety of countries and backgrounds, including Europe and North America, and spending time with them is a fantastic opportunity to practice cultural exchange!

Alternatively, you can undertake a short 5-hour, 14-hour, or 30-hour course in English. These courses are tailored to your needs and run alongside your main volunteer project. This is extremely useful if English is not your first language and if English skills are required for your project. If you are planning on volunteering abroad for twelve weeks or more, you could also complete a 60-hour course alongside your volunteer experience.
