English as a Second Language
"It has been said that "english is a career".
We provide comprehensive English language instruction to students ages 5 and older through a combination of teacher-led lessons, youth-led projects, and conversational opportunities with English-speaking volunteers. Through high-quality English language training, this program assists students in attaining proficiency in English and broadening their cultural awareness for success in their academic, professional, and personal pursuits.
When a child begins to learn English, skills such as creativity, self-esteem, and increases in independence and autonomy start to emerge beyond the increases in brain development that occur due to learning a second language. For the future of the children and young people in Nicaragua learning English is one of the easiest ways to get employed. Tourism is still the best opportunity to pull Nicaragua out of its low world UN status. In Jiquilillo, there are local tourist businesses that need to hire people that speak English.
