THE EXPERIENCE OF SPEAKING ENGLISH
Created in 2015, at the top of the picturesque escalators of Comuna 13 (Medellín), this project was started by Milena Palavilla with the purpose of teaching English for free for the development of the community. Initially, they were just English classes (Stairway to English), but then they turned into activities that led to language exchange and community tours.
Currently, it is a project with which we impact the communities of Medellín and Chocó, teaching English with an immersive methodology. Our sessions are supported by volunteers, held in public spaces and have the participation of social entities.
What do we do?
Community and free English sessions in Colombia supported by a network of volunteers and public entities such as El Cedezo and the José Luis Arroyave Restrepode Library Park in San Javier.
