Teach in Ecuador
The mission of the project is to improve English education throughout Ecuadorian public schools. You will work with regular Ecuadorian students, many of whom will never have had the chance to learn English with a native speaker.
The Ecuadorian government are giving high priority to English language education in order to improve future life chances and prosperity for young Ecuadorians and so this is an extremely worthwhile project to be a part of.
