Young boy smilling as he learns english

Creating Smiles Through English Lessons

Since the beginning of our work in Capljina, one of the key activities we have provided for young people has been English lessons. These can be structured courses where there is an option to sit an exam at the end of the course and receive a certificate from Cambridge University. Or we also offer more informal, conversation type sessions where people can practice and improve their communication skills. Sometimes we work with small groups, sometimes
one to one.

Danijel comes for help with his English homework. Despite English being his least favourite subject at
school he appreciates learning in a fun way and being encouraged for small steps of progress. The smile on
his face is priceless when he gets a better than expected grade at school and his efforts pay off.

But for Danijel coming to Novi Most is about so much more than learning English. It’s a place where he’s seen and heard. It’s a place where he feels he can bring his friends but also make new friends, people he otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to get to know. It is a place where he can learn and grow in many more ways than he thought when he arrived for his first English class
