Do you have free time? Do you have any skills or experience in an area for which you can exchange? With IrlandaInglés, we offer you the opportunity to participate in our Bank of Time: an exchange system that will allow you to offer and obtain services for free, and meet interesting people.
How does the Time Bank work?
The operation is very simple. If you can offer a specific service, all you have to do is contact us and we will register you in the Time Bank. Here you can also request services from the rest of the participants.
If, for example, you are very good at sewing, but your computer is broken, you can offer your free time to make clothing arrangements and, in return, find someone to fix it for you for free. With each service you provide, the Bank will pay you in hours, which you can spend immediately or accumulate in your account and redeem when you need any of the services offered in the Time Bank.
In addition to finding all kinds of offers and demands, participating in the Bank of Time is a selfless form of help between people which can become a very enriching experience.
