  • Description


    Dear friends,

    We are an English language teaching program to children and young people from diverse groups with foreign people who have a fluent level of English. Embrace this opportunity, and we will be delighted to welcome you, ensuring memorable moments shared together!

    The Inclusive Multicultural Original Program, proposes an environment of participation and cultural exchange between diverse groups such as: indigenous, mestizos, foreigners and other ethnic groups, with respect, responsibility, trust, cooperation and peaceful coexistence being the values that are practiced day by day within the teaching processes.

    General objective

    - Promote a process of teaching the English language to boys and girls in the province of Cañar from an intercultural and inclusive approach.

    Specific objectives

    - Promote a bilingual intercultural education from the exchange and interaction of the educational community during the teaching-learning process.
    - Promote the teaching of the English language from an active pedagogy, of encounter, respect and appreciation of differences.
    - Promote the tourist development of the canton, province and the country as complementary activities

    Convinced that education is the most powerful instrument for the progress of humanity, a path of hope is undertaken, which seeks to reduce the social gaps that have been the product of discrimination and xenophobia in common people. For this reason, cultural exchange from the teaching of the English language is considered important as a significant tool for the new generations, which allows them to address this new cosmopolitan reality.
