THE BEST OF ALLEGRO

Every prison in Slovenia has a language learning circle.

In the Zarja Institute, Slovenia, participants recovering from head injuries have learned English, German, Italian and Spanish.

Two and three-year-olds, at a parent and toddler group in Nottingham, England, take part in Spanish games and dancing, eat tapas and have their faces painted with the Spanish flag.

500 marginalised learners across Europe are learning languages with ALLEGRO.

"I have learned as much from the people I have taught as they have learned from me."
