This experience started to look very much alike a dream and it turned to be real. I found what I was searching for in my TEFL career, the challenge of communicating with people from a different culture by using my teaching strategies, not the google translator; definetly games and smiles is a SmartLink to build rapport with.
The English Center coordinators organized a weekly schedule for each one of us volunteers to teach either at the matrix or in other schools to toddlers, teenagers and adults. I couldn’t expect more than what I got for it was a context full of great surprises!!

The staff is really kind and the kids are cute. I made a lot of great memories while I volunteered at SmartLink. It might be a little unorganized and not super hygiene at the school but all in all it was a good experience.

pretty good experience i'd say, the people are super nice but the system lacks a little bit of organization and its not as clean as expected but for the rest it was a pretty good experience
