My time in Trujillo staying with David was truly a wonderful and eye-opening experience. Interacting with and teaching the kids that were apart of the program was a very fulfilling opportunity. They are very excited to learn and all of them were very special kids. Trujillo was a fun city to live in with cool things to see, just be prepared to pay for your own transportation to the neighborhoods where the kids live by taxi and also for all of your own food/meals, drinking water, rent, etc.

I really had a great time in Peru with espaanglisch you meet locals that are really nice and show you around in Peru, you meet the children that are very sweet and kind. It was definitely an experience I will remember my whole life. What i especially appreciated is that David takes the time to make a videocall so you know what to expect. You pay for the place to sleep you have no food included but it’s very worth it! You get to live in a hostel and if your lucky you can have a private room! I really had a crazy experience there I could go on for pages but you have to see it yourself!

I had an amazing time at Espaanglisch! David is a great host who makes you feel very comfortable and welcomed. The work with the children is really nice, pedagogic and doesnt even feel like work. Beside the english classes, we did lots of activities and had lots of fun. You also get to meet other volunteers as the house welcomes another NGO's volunteers + the conversation classes allows you to meet peruvians so that's also very cool. The housing is very nice and in a good neighborhood. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer! 100% recommand!

When I first arrived , I was surprised by the environment in which these very sweet children live. But, it became very clear that they are happy and taken care of. It was so lovely to be around children who are so motivated and truly happy to learn . I was amazed at how quickly they absorb material and honored to share English with them. David does a much needed and remarkable job to help these kids grow. The work is fun and a few hours a day , it did not feel like work. I loved the conversation class also and meeting such beautiful new friends I hope to see again . Thanks David (and Carmen)

David is a cool, friendly guy wo his always open for a chat or an activity. He built up an amazing NGO with Espaanglisch. We really felt that our work had an impact on the local communities in Trujillo. The kids were very interested and eager to learn. The Espaanglisch Casa is a comfortable home where we had our own room and bathroom. Carmen, David’s aunt who is also living in the Casa, was always there to help us when it came to household things such as cooking or fresh towels. Overall we can totally recommend David and Espaanglisch!
