How to get jobs teaching in Colombia

teach in Colombia

Ethnic diversity has become a part of why I made a decision to come teach in Colombia. Being of mixed background, myself, I�ve for ages been interested in other cultures and ethnicities, so when I'd the opportunity to come live in a country with a couple of variations, I knew I couldn�t pass it. The different cultural heritage will be the result of the interaction between native inhabitants of the nation, Spanish colonists, African people who were originally held as slaves, plus more recent immigrants in the Middle East and Europe. Should you thought the United States was the only melting pot of backgrounds, you're wrong! I used to be desperate to learn about all these different sets of people and how they've got come together to give Colombia the taste it has today.

But the diversity isn�t just about the people, the geography is just as varied - or even more! It�s actually the most megadiverse country per square kilometer on earth! The majority of the big cities have been in the Andes highlands, so that�s what people most commonly think of once they think about Colombia, however it actually encompasses part of the Amazon rainforest and both Caribbean and Pacific coastlines. You will find 6 main parts of the united states, geography-wise, which results in a lot of diversity.

If you�re at all interested in animals, then you will love Colombia. It�s actually the most biodiverse country in the world, meaning her highest rate of species by area and also the largest quantity of species that aren't found anywhere else on the planet! Colombia is the place to see a few of the rarest breeds on the planet, with over 1800 different kinds of birds and 450 forms of mammals, not to mention the thousands of several types of fish, both fresh and salt-water. Where else on earth could you view a jaguar, Amazon river dolphin, blue and yellow macaw, and banded armadillo all within the borders of a country?

You shouldn�t stress about safety, despite whatever you decide to have often heard in news bulletins lately. For a long time, conflicts in Colombia deterred tourists from visiting or surviving in the country, but recently the amount of tourists have skyrocketed, due to vast improvements in safety and security in the nation. In reality, over 3 million tourists visited in 2011, up about 11% from previous years.

With beautiful beaches, canyons, mountains, cities, history, and more, Colombia is definitely a great location to come teach. Additionally the variety in plants, animals, and not to cover, people, and you have a fantastic country having a vast background a lot to discover. I couldn�t be happier with my decision in the future here and I�ve had a great time taking weekend trips to various cities or more remote places where I'm able to attempt to spot among the rare species only present in Colombia. I'd definitely recommend getting a great camera before you decide to come!
