Review

WorldTeach is a great organization that is supportive on both the teaching and living fronts. They help develop the volunteers teaching ability and experience while also supporting living arrangements. Guyana is a small underdeveloped country that is the unpolished gem of South America and the Caribbean! It is overshadowed by the big tourism countries, leaving it untouched by industrialization. Guyanese, as a whole, may be stand-off-ish at first but are always welcoming! Also, once integrated into the community, they treat you like family. My students found out I love roti and pickled mango (unrippened mango and peper sauce) so they would bring some for me if they had extras at home! The students may be challenging at times, but it was easy anyone would do it! Patience and flexibility are musts when converting between the fast paced American life to the laid back Guyanese culture! Overall...Guyana will take you in and make you fall in love with it and make you never want to leave!
