Institute Review
They have you working from 6am to 9pm Monday to Sat*r*ay. You'll be getting your schedule everyday at 6pm for the following day, thus preventing you from making any plans or having any social life outside of work. They don't count preparation time as working hours, even though they expect you to prepare your classes (even if you finished at 9pm on the other side of the city and they want you to be in class at 6am the next day, who needs more than 4-5 hours of sleep?).
They don't value you as a teacher, or even as a person. You get so exhausted that you can't function properly. I have seen teachers crying in the teachers'lounge and then going to class. I've cried myself a few times when going home, just from exhaustion and frustration!
No one cares if your students are struggling to understand something, you will still have the same amount of "points" to cover in every class,. So in the end all they want is for you to "deliver" classes, not to care about your students. (Who pay a lot of money for these classes)
And if you tell them that something is wrong and give them ideas to improce the work conditions, they'll tell you that they'll improve things even though they have no intention to. It's been like that for years, it has never changed in the right way for the teachers, and despite what they might say it's not about to!
Believe me, if you go work there you will not be seeing any of Colombia as you'll be working and sleeping, and on Sundays (your ONLY day off) you'll just be so exhausted that all you'll want to do is sleep...
Do go to Colombia, it's a great country, but avoid Berlitz, it will ruin your experience.
