|Edulearn 12, IATED
|This paper introduces one of the most successful classes (called "Volunteering in English") offered in the English language department at the author's university. The class was effective in two respects: students' self-assessment of their cultural and perceptional developments while living in their homogeneous (98%) native country, and the practical and vocational nature of the class and its fit with the global trend toward volunteerism.
