Colombian Ministry of Education: A Bilingual Nation

Fluency in the English language is often a gateway to better opportunities for many people in Latin America and the Colombian Ministry of Education is set on funding bilingual initiatives throughout the nation. One strategy implemented by Colombia Bilingüe and Heart for Change/Volunteers Colombia is to welcome English Fellows into public schools to co-teach English with Colombian teachers in order to motivate students and teachers and bring about an innovative bilingual learning culture at participating schools.

From July 2016-June 2017 I will be collaborating with a Colombian public school through this program. Check out the video below to hear about the program from fellows, students and teachers themselves.
