Ometepe Bilingual School was established in the summer of 2007 with the goal of providing free English language classes in the rural community of Merida on the southwestern side of Isla de Ometepe in Nicaragua. We provide a preschool and after-school program that children attend on their own initiative in addition to their five-hour days at public school. We also provides healthy oatmeal and granola porridge for all of the children after each day of classes. Methods of teaching include bilingual card games, movies, text and grammar book activities, singing, dancing, sailing, kayaking, and field trips. We have 40 to 50 students between five and 18 years old. Older students are at a basic conversational level of English.
