Overview: Teaching English in a Preschool in Hanguranketha, Sri Lanka

Hanguranketha is located in the highlands of Sri Lanka. It offers a unique and breathtaking landscape. As participants in this project in this city you can get to know the city, the people and the highlands from a completely new perspective. The classes take place at both the private and public preschools. By learning English the Sri Lankan children improve their chances to find a good job in the future or to learn other foreign languages.
