We offer this project: Cultural HOUSE: To study English in Colombia is something that not everybody can afford. Academies are really expensive and not always offer the best quality. So we created a cultural house where people can come and learn English at a low cost. We also visit locals schools to give them support in the English classes. For this project, we offer accommodation and a kind of wage of 800.000 COP. It is important the person gets committed at least for 6months.
- want to learn, improve or practice Spanish - are interested in living in South America (Colombia is the new country of south america. 20 years ago things were hard, but now is completely different. The country is in the process of transformation and is full kindness and the most of travellers called the best country of S.A) - like teaching - want to help to make Colombia bilingual (the idea of the project is to incentive biliguism in the rural areas of the country, the nation is changing and it requires that the new generations speak English. Some people in the cities can communicate in English but the people who live in small cities around not really as there are not proper methodologies yet. )
