UEX Ecuador Participant Reviews
Submitted by Lauren Norris - Quito Ecuador | March 10, 2017
The program has, so far, been an interesting experience for me. Posted to a school in Puembo (just outside of Quito), I have enjoyed the opportunity of teaching English to some young Ecuadorians. I have endeavoured to encourage an interest in the language and open students lives to the importance of learning about another culture. I have also made great friends with my colleagues. The role does not come without challenges, days can be spontaneous and off schedule and indeed it can be a difficult to control 35 students in one class! Despite this, any volunteer with a flexible and positive attitude will be enriched by such this unique and authentic experience.
