We are the largest private English language school in Ipiales, Colombia (located about 10 minutes from the border with Ecuador). Our students range from very young children just starting to learn English to seasoned professionals wishing to brush up their English skills. One of our key teaching objectives is to have all of our students interact with teachers from other parts of the world - such as yourself - so that they can also learn about different cultures while learning English.
You will be teaching basic, intermediate or advanced English classes that usually have a maximum of 10 students per class. We also provide individual English lessons. We afford hosting and food and you can submit in the colombian culture and improve your spanish as well.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for people who wants to share their culture with others, to have fun while they help some students to improve their english level and want to be part of the colombian culture.
We will provide you with full accommodation in a family environment, and 3 meals per day for as long as you are volunteering with us. the house is shared with other teachers from the academy, a nice education and proper behavior is required. This is a small city, then every place is near (walking distance) so you can enjoy some awesome places.
We can help you with some tours in the place or travel to small towns to show you different kinds of living in our country.
In Ipiales there are many activities to do in order to get fun, you may go to LAS LAJAS SANCTUARY which is consider a marvel of the world, we have some really awesome lakes to visit and have fun there. Our students really like to share time with teachers from other parts of the world then you may be part of their plans.
