<h2><strong>Help us to save our free english school!</strong></h2> <p>We are a <strong>free English school</strong> with <strong>innovative pedagogy</strong>, based in Taltal, a wonderful little town in the <strong>north of Chile</strong>. Donations from the people of Taltal normally allow us to run <strong>our association</strong>.<br /> But, due to the <strong>coronavirus crisis</strong>, we lack the means to <strong>make the school survive</strong>.</p> <p><em>Somos una <strong>escuela de ingl&eacute;s gratuita</strong> con una <strong>pedagog&iacute;a innovadora</strong>, con sede en Taltal, un peque&ntilde;o y maravilloso pueblo en <strong>el norte de Chile</strong>.</em><em> Las donaciones de los habitantes de Taltal nos permiten normalmente hacer funcionar <strong>nuestra organizaci&oacute;n</strong>.<br /> Pero debido a la <strong>crisis del coronavirus</strong>, no tenemos los medios para <strong>seguir sobreviviendo</strong>.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Who are we? <strong><em>&iquest;Qui&eacute;nes somos?</em></strong></strong></h2> <hr /> <p><br /> <strong>&quot;EFTG*&quot; Language School </strong>- Taltal Social Project, is a privately run, <strong>independent, nonprofit, volunteer based organization</strong> that teaches English to the people of Taltal. We welcome students from all walks of life, ranging from young children and teenagers, to housewives and professionals. The ultimate goal is to assist in educational, economically sustainable development and foster greater selfesteem in the people of our community.</p> <p><em>EFTG Language School &ndash; Taltal Social Project CHILE, es una organizaci&oacute;n funcional <strong>sin fines de lucro e independiente</strong>, que imparte <strong>clases de Ingl&eacute;s de forma gratuita</strong> para ni&ntilde;os, adultos, due&ntilde;as de casa, trabajadores etc..

Through the selfless generosity of supporters to our innovative &quot;Secret Friends&quot; scheme, we have been able to implement this large and ambitious project. Starting with only a few students, EFTG now takes care of more than 150 students.</p> <p>Due to its success, EFTG opens in <strong>2020</strong>, a <strong>new school in Monte Patria</strong>-Chile. Unfortunately, with only one month of operation and the coronavirus crisis, the school could not be opened properly.</p> <p><em><strong>Creada en el a&ntilde;o 2013</strong></em><em>, y abriendo sus puertas a la comunidad en Junio del mismo a&ntilde;o, EFTG cuenta con el financiamiento a trav&eacute;s de la iniciativa &ldquo;Secret Friends&rdquo; o Amigos Secretos, que hacen posible el funcionamiento.&nbsp; Lo que comenz&oacute; con s&oacute;lo unos pocos alumnos, EFTG hoy cuenta con m&aacute;s de 150 alumnos.</em></p> <p><em>Por su &eacute;xito, EFTG abre el <strong>2020</strong> <strong>una nueva escuela en Monte Patria</strong> - Chile.

Thanks to the reception of english speaker volunteers from all over the world, this affords our students the unique opportunity to sample <strong>a taste of cultures and nationalities</strong> that could otherwise be beyond their reach.</p> <p><em>En EFTG trabajamos con voluntarios de diversas partes del mundo, haciendo posible que nuestros alumnos tengan la posibilidad de compartir experiencias y de un intercambio cultural, siendo &eacute;sta <strong>&ldquo;CULTURE&rdquo; la quinta skill</strong> con la que &ldquo;EFTG&rdquo;&nbsp; trabaja, gracias a nuestros <strong>voluntarios ENGLISH SPEAKERS</strong>. </em></p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src=";display_name=YouTube&amp;;;key=cb39d84f05d8439bbe96012f078e02b0&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" title="YouTube embed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p><a href=";v=HzhHSgqbhDs&amp;feature=emb_logo" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></a></p> <p><br /> This school helps to increase <strong>the skills of young professionals</strong> and aims to help to r<strong>educe economic and social gaps</strong>.
