  • Projects in both Mijas and Benalmádena are running weekly conversation classes

Volunteers are being sought to help local people in Mijas and Benalmádena improve their English. If you have native-level English and have some spare time to give back to your local community, two initiatives are ongoing.

In Mijas, the I SPEAK ENGLISH project has seen volunteers attend schools in the area (IES Villa de Mijas, CEIP Virgen de la Peña and IES La Vega de Mijas) twice a week for approximately two hours for the last 15 years. If you are interested in giving conversation classes, contact the AIVOMI association, by email (


Meanwhile in Benalmádena, the Summer English Workshop is starting up again in the INNOVA park with volunteers needed for conversation on Mondays from 11.30am to 1pm. If you would like to participate, email
