Why English? Why Bogotá?
As part of the agreements established by the Bogota City Hall and the Bogota Council ten years ago in order to improve education, job and business opportunities for all the people in the city, the project “Bogota Bilingue” was born and regarding its importance, the Education Ministry opened the gates of a bigger project named “Colombia Bilingue”. The main goal of these projects is to aware people about the importance of learning a second language and being competitive to face a world full of international connections and that is demanding them to be prepared if they want to succeed. In this case, as we want to frame all our Learning Manual in the social, cultural and historical context of our city, it is important to base our proposal in a project that has been proven by the government and gives more relevance to achieve our own goals.
