I did not go to Colombia for the money, I went for the experience of working in a different culture and to offer pedagogy to fellow teachers. I worked in Florencia, where the Colombian teachers are extremely dedicated and thirsty for ideas to implement in their classes. The high school teachers have a good command of English so they are looking for different methodologies for their classrooms. The elementary school teachers are doing their best to teach in English, without having received second language teaching methodology so they need a different kind of support. The bilingual teachers are doing an amazing job in low socio-economic schools with few resources. Sueños and Colombia met my expectations and left me wanting to return.

Would you recommend this program?
