    Do you enjoy teaching languages or always wanted to try? Then come and join us!

    We are an international language institute located in Villa de Leyva, Colombia, a few hours north of Bogotá, and we are looking for native speakers to teach their language, especially English, French and German, to students of all ages: children, teenagers and adults.

    We offer private and group classes with a limit of 5 students per class. Most of our teaching activities take place at the institute, but as part of our social impact program we also go to rural schools to teach English to children from low-income families.

    We have been working with volunteers for more than 3 years now and we love it! We want to give you the opportunity to spend time in Colombia and know more about its unique culture and traditions, improve your Spanish, and meet some of the friendliest and warmest people you will ever meet. Our goal is to help you have a fulfilling experience and make you feel at home.

    Are you a whizz on WordPress? Love posting on Insta? We're always keen to get a tech-savvy person here to help us with web and social, if you're a keen videographer and photographer too - that's an added bonus!
