Lingo Flamingo

This Organisation is looking for Volunteers

Description

Recent research shows that speaking a foreign language can postpone the effects of dementia by up to 5 years.
Lingo Flamingo therefore provide tailored outreach language workshops to older adults delaying the effects of dementia by keeping older adults' brains fit and active.
In our classes we incorporate memory tips throughout to assist with our learners remembering new vocabulary. We teach by evoking different senses, we therefore include exercises with music, touch, scent, feel, and taste to make language learning fun and accessible for all.

We do outreach projects across South Ayrshire. We provide lessons in community halls, cafes, day centres and care homes so if you fancy having some lingo lessons then please get in touch.
