4 weeks in Puerto

My time in Puerto has been a great adventure. Puerto is a lovely city - small enough to feel home fast, but still offering a lot as wonderful beaches, many surf classes, beach clubs and most importantly welcoming and friendly people.

The Spanish school was great and the staff nice. For not knowing a lot of Spanish, I was able to learn really quick due to the good and intensive lessons.

For one week, I was working in a summer school programme. It consisted of english lessons for kids 6-14, and lasted 90 minutes per day, plus preparation time. The project was very much appreciated by th kids and a lot of fun.
My second project was in a kindergarden, where we helped the local staff in their dail routines. It was also enjoyable.

How can this program be improved?
The Social Work Projects could be improved by finding more projects that are socially relevant and have a greater impact on other peoples lifes. It definetly helps you to grow personally, but programmes as the kindergarden work are not as necessary for the institution. On the other hand, the summer classes in english were great and very much appreciated by the kids.
Yes, I recommend this program
