    Hello to everyone!! Well… we are 3 people Jorge,Lucia & Elias,we work for public education and we have been working in a way to improve the English in our department so… we thought in this kind of help that enriches the way of learning. which is teaching and helping with volunteers in the road to learn English with some help from people from outside so we want to invite you to live amongst traditional Colombians and help teaching english : A project that gives you the opportunity to give back to the local community all while having a great time and learning Spanish and so much more. We that means Public schools we are looking for volunteers to teach English to disadvantaged youths in pitalito huila, villages nearby and indigenous communities.

    join this new venture that is beginning to help communities and sectors which do not have the facility and opportunity to have access to bilingual education and to strengthen the knowledge that is basically learned in school. For that reason and for more, this great project is created, which adapts to the facilities that public education can provide to the schools and communities that will benefit from the help of native speakers of English or foreigners who speak the language perfectly to help to teachers in small school days which would only be an assistant that help with the pronunciation, correction of some things that require it and have fun teaching and helping with the Idea of learn english. The idea arose from the need presented by having to know how to speak English all over the world, it is a language that helps you socially as well as professionally, it opens many doors and gives you many opportunities here as well as abroad. Learning a language, whatever it is, expands your mind and enriches you in one way or another, which is why having people from all over the world and speaking English help you to learn and have that knowledge in your head and the future you can use it.

    The time of help will be 3 or 4 hours daily and 5 days per week, weekends will be free for you!
    That is why we invite you to help us in this great step that we are taking with the public education that is contributing to this great project, which will benefit several young people who want to progress in life and be great professionals in the future.

    We are located in Pitalito-Huila, a small city in the south of Colombia with magnificent places to go as El Parque Arqueologico de San Agustin,El estrecho del Magdalena,Desierto de la Tatacoa,Salto de Bordones,ECT… which are very touristy in Colombia. You are going to have a lot of fun here, many foreigners come here.

    Help

    Well as I said before is not a direct job, it is more than all accompaniment and assistance in learning is more interacting with the community while learning English in a fun way. The idea is to work as much as possible during 3 to 4 hours a day, 5 days a week, in the matter of learning. It may vary, perhaps in the morning or in the afternoon. We will provide you with a schedule and a free morning or afternoon a week. This project is summarized in aid in education with assistance and interaction by natives or foreigners who perfectly handle the English language. It is quite easy to do and rewarding.

    The accommodation will depend on whether you are in Pitalito Huila, nearby towns or indigenous communities, bearing in mind that we will be helping many young people in the region in the process of learning the English language. Basically you will stay in family homes which will be aware of all the needs you need during your stay. You will always have your good bed, your good room (perhaps shared with a more or individual Workawayer) your shared bathroom, the rooms have closet and bedside table. You will also have your 3 daily meals; Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks during your stay and also a washing machine for your use during your stay
