I saw this and it looked interesting...was wondering how comparable it was salary wise to existing roles in Colombia...

I am CELTA qualified with a years experience so would I be able to find something better than this in somewhere like Barranquilla?...

You can do 11 months straight...I don't think they sort you a visa...the start times point to that...

Salary is $400...and you have the choice of either a host family or a shared apartment...i presume utilities and food are covered especially if you go the host family route...

Salary is the same in Bogota, Medellin and Barranquilla...

Placement fee which is the most annoying part is between $750 and $990...

Is this a poor deal?...

This sounds terrible, unless you don't think you're capable of coming to Colombia without the help of an organization.

That's quite a bad deal.

One would seriously have to be an idiot to sign up and pay for that.

In other words they want people to come and teach classes for almost nothing under the guise that it is some cultural program and not a for profit language institute.

This program has been around for a while now. Does anyone have any experience with Cultural Embrace?
