16. I am a non-native English speaker and I would would like to improve my language skills during my stay. Is this OK?

Many hosts are very happy to take foreign WWOOFers and help them with their English, but you still need a genuine enthusiasm for taking part in organic farming during your stay. This usually involves physical activity, being outside and getting your hands dirty. It may be that you would like to join an English course while you are volunteering in the UK. This is possible if you agree this with your host in advance. WWOOF should not be thought of as a simple way to gain a placement to complete a college course you have been studying in your own country.
