Free English classes are provided at the non-profit Learning Center as a way for underprivileged children from the region of Tabanan to learn English and maximize the possibility for future employment in this tourist-rich region of Bali. English is the international language, with this skill the child can communicate with their worldwide sponsors and with visitors from other countries that come to visit Bali, Indonesia. Furthermore, this will give them a step ahead in their future professional careers. Four levels of English are taught by international teachers volunteering their expertise and time. At present there are 60 children attending the Learning Center who range in age from 5 to 18 years.
