What is Espaanglisch?
"We are a non-profit organization with a vision to reduce the education inequality gaps, and to increase opportunities for underprivileged children through the teaching of languages with the primary focus in English.
Our goal is to provide students in the public elementary schools language training. We promote equal opportunities between men and women, and equality in public schools in underprivileged areas. We promote cultural exchange through the process of learning between international volunteers and students. We guarantee that all children, regardless of their socioeconomic and cultural condition, will have an opportunity to learn in a fun and interactive atmosphere."
English Language for Schools
"We provide free Basic English classes to children at four primary schools: Institucion Educativa LA CANTERA and Institucion Educativa Simon Bolivar (add other schools). All of our students come from a poor neighborhood in Trujillo where English-language education is not available.
Additionally, we offer our low-cost "Gringlish" Basic and Intermediate English and Conversation Classes for adults in Trujillo. Our Conversation Class students are mainly lower income Peruvians who attend to improve their English in order to assist their employment or gain new work opportunities."
English Language for Partner Organizations
"We are involved in various fundraising activities to finance the Espanglish program. See our donation page for information regarding our latest campaign and how you can contribute if desired."
"Spanish classes are available, and usually are taught on a one to one basis. For a discount you can take group classes (min of 3 people). Each teacher tailors the classes to the student’s needs and abilities. For further information email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org"
"Regular social events are organized by the Espanglish Peru program and volunteers. Past examples include sandboarding, Downhill bike riding and hiking&biking tours, beach volleyball, cooking, surfing and Peruvian dinners with traditional drinks."
