We are a low cost English school led specially to public schools of banana workers, all humble and with low incomes. We try to be part of the solution having into account that English is mostly studied by upper-classed people and considered to be out of reach by under-privileged people.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You have the chance to go to the beach, flshing, swimming or dancing. We are welcoming enough to invite you to know the most notable places in the area and to enjoy local and traditional food. You also have the chance to help us with our language at home and if you like cooking, you'll have the kitchen all for you.
Teaching English children, youngs and adults. We need native English speakers, better American or English; but other nationalities are also accepted if English is their native language. We afford hosting and food. A very good proficiency at the language is expected and a nice education and proper behavior is required.
We provide a single furnitured room at home and a family environment. Being clear that when more than one volunteer is hosted the room is shared. We are a small and latin-averaged family composed by four members, all working or studying. We are spanish speakers but can perform also at English. Ideal for someone who wants to reinforce spanish communication skills. Sometimes we offer formal spanish classes for free if the volunteers request.
