You don’t have to be a teacher or have any previous experience. It’s just about two newfound friends swapping what they have for what they want.

Go cambio host – Conversational English. Thai cooking. Blues guitar. Or even PHP programming. Whatever skill or a language you’d like to improve (or even learn from scratch), the chances are there’s a GoCambio Guest who can help you out. For free.

All you have to do is offer them a place to stay and a warm welcome. It’s a great way to learn without paying loads of cash to a tutor. It’s more fun than evening classes. And it’s great way to meet people from around the world. It’s an exchange between friends.
