Lingo Flamingo

Lingo Flamingo is a not-for-profit social enterprise which aims to make language learning accessible to older adults. We believe it is never to late to learn, and that you can always teach an old dog new tricks! Our work is grounded in research which shows the amazing cognitive benefits of language learning.


Current opportunity

Lingo Flamingo are searching for volunteer language tutors! You must be compassionate and willing to share your language skills (either French, Spanish, Italian or German) with older adults in care homes and day centres in Edinburgh. You will be given teaching training before starting a project, and then you must be free for 10 consecutive weeks. Classes usually take place on a weekday in the morning or early afternoon. Own transport desirable but not essential, and travel expenses reimbursed.
