Anyone up for giving English lessons to our volunteers?

Hey there

Is anyone up for giving weekly English lessons to our volunteer Alba, from Spain? Or maybe even hold an English workshop if they are interested and have the time.
Or if maybe someone knows any free classes held anywhere in Edinburgh, that would also be of great help!

Thanks
