Full description

More than English Colombia aims to bring foreign teachers to rural schools in Colombia to teach English. Since all the schools we work with are in rural areas, it is more of a volunteering position because these schools don't really have many resources. The schools provide accommodation, breakfast and lunch during the weekdays and they pay monthly salary of approx 700 000 Colombian pesos (about 214 EUR) which is a standard Colombian salary. It isn't much by any western standards, however, you can live very comfortably with this amount here.
