are key to personal and professional satisfaction during your

service. These skills are critical to your job performance, they

help you integrate into your community, and they can ease

your personal adaptation to the new surroundings. Therefore,

language training is at the heart of the training program. You

must successfully meet minimum language requirements to

complete training and become a Volunteer. Rwanda language

continue language studies during your service.
