Putting Something Back Into The Community


For the last four years The Voluntary English Teaching Group has been providing free tuition to unemployed Spanish residents in Javea. These courses, facilitated by the town hall, the Help desk and Creama the unemployment office, are designed to enable the local community to speak English and/or German to improve their chances of employment in this multi-cultural region.

On the 30th April Javea’s Deputy Mayor Oscar Anton and Juan Luis Cardona Councillor with responsibility for Creama, presented certificates to the students who had successfully completed a 100 hour English course with exam.
