Pantila y Nan son muy amables, y el lugar esta ok pero no es lo que yo particularmente esperaba. Las tareas diarias consisten en 2 turnos de clases, depende de la cantidad de alumnos y voluntarios si enseñas o no. No hay un plan así que queda en tu voluntad e imaginación que enseñarle a cada grupo. Después se limpia o ayuda con la huerta (trabajo fuerte sin herramientas) . Un día se reparten flyers en feria de comida..Considerar: hay un pequeño mercado a 5 minutos y después uno un poco mas grande a 15/20 min en bicicleta. Tal vez no era mi momento para visitar ese lugar. Vale la experiencia.
