Language Partners BC cannot run programs everywhere, so we want to support people in starting their own programs. Have you considered starting a program in your community? We hope these resources can empower you to get started.
Send us a message – We would love to hear if you are starting a new language exchange program. Send an email to our coordinator ([email protected]). We can’t promise an immediate response, but we would be happy to hear and provide feedback. We can even connect you to people in your area when we get questions.
