    Would you like to work with us?
    We are an international language institute located in Villa de Leyva, Colombia, a few hours North of Bogota. Famous for its Colonial architecture, white buildings, red-clay tile roofs, stone streets, and large main square, Villa de Leyva is an important tourist destination of international acclaim. We offer different languages, including English, French and German. We work with children, teenagers, and adults.
    All teaching activities are conducted in open spaces with a focus on conversational learning and limited to six students per class.
    We are looking for native speakers, and we offer you the opportunity to spend time in Colombia, meet some of the friendliest and warmest people you’ll ever meet, and to learn Spanish while you teach others your native tongue.

    We are looking for native speakers to teach foreign languages, especially English, to students of all ages: children, teenagers and adults. Our concept is for students to “learn by practice”, while participating in a wide range of instructed guided activities, such as cooking, crafts, singing, gardening and many others. Classes will be limited to 6 students.

    We need you to help us teach your language to children and adults, but for example if you do not like working with children, we have no problem you can choose the age of the students. In general we need you to teach your language and to make it easier we have different books that will help you, audios, videos and more.

    We have 3 employees who are paid to perform administrative, accounting, marketing and customer service tasks.
