This paper outlines a non-formal language education program at a refugee community centre in mainland Greece in the context of the current refugee crisis in Europe. In this context, language classes are in high demand, often provided by volunteer-led organisations. The move to integrate and support refugees as language teachers at one such organisation is documented, mentioning the opportunities and challenges that this presents in terms of training and motivation. It is hoped that this article can contribute to a growing body of literature around language education for refugees in a pre-resettlement context.
