Many things enriched my experience at Nueva Language, but the one thing that stands out in my mind, was the opportunity I had to volunteer. When I opted to volunteer, I didn’t really know what that meant, but when I began classes, I soon discovered another part of Colombia I would come to love and cherish.
Over my four weeks volunteering, I grew to love some of the children, and the staff. Not only was I helping them with various things, but they were helping me to know another side of life. I could tell how important my presence was and how much the children looked forward to my visits. It was very rewarding, and very meaningful. I wanted my trip to Colombia to be more than just sightseeing, and taking Spanish. And this option to volunteer really brought it together, and gave me the enlightened experience I was looking for.
