EOI TANDEM – LANGUAGE EXCHANGE

PEOPLE

El método más eficaz para aprender un idioma es imitar el procedimiento con el que cada persona ha aprendido su propio idioma de manera natural, a través de las interacciones sociales.

TODOS LOS MIÉRCOLES, TODOS LOS IDIOMAS, en la EOI VALÈNCIA-SAÏDIA con la colaboración de “València Language Exchange” en la cafetería de la escuela. Desde las 17:30h hasta las 20h. De octubre a mayo.

Follow the instructions below and you will certainly  improve.
