Although English has official status in some regions, an overwhelming majority of Colombians speak the Spanish language or other native languages. Tourism and an increasing commercial relationship with the English speaking world mean that the ability to speak English is more and more valued, and this had lead to a significant demand for English teachers and interns, particularly in the countryside.

How you can help


Day 1 – 2 
When you arrive in Colombia, you will start your teaching adventure with a 2 day orientation session in Barranquilla, the largest city in Colombia. You will have sessions on the local culture, teaching techniques and gain all the inside tips on living in Colombia. On the second night you’ll have a welcome dinner, the perfect chance to get to know your group better. 
You'll be living in the heart of Barranquilla, so there will be plenty of time for you to get acquainted with your new surroundings and prepare for your first day of teaching tomorrow. 
Day 3 – 48
The next 7 weeks will be life changing. The school you’ll teach in is in a small village called Puerto Colombia which you’ll travel to with the other interns. You’ll get stuck into all aspects of school life and make the most of your   TEFL qualification. During your time in Colombia, you’ll have free time at weekends and in the evenings with your fellow interns. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to experience the great food, drink and Colombia’s vibrant atmosphere.  

Day 49 - 57
After your 7 weeks teaching experience you’ll have a week to explore this amazing country. Why not head to the Tayrona National Park, explore the Minca coffee plantations or simply spend a week on the beach for some much needed R&R?
