people using different languages with from time to time small talks in a language which is not English
mission seen as a big challenge, too big for one person only
problems of connexion
no one seems to take the lead and to give guidelines and deadlines
last minute work
lack of information.
Solutions you found
Talk in the same language.
Divide the work.
Using social media to communicate with the students.
Take a leadership position to organize the work.
