2016 – On-line Spanish courses – begun as a pilot program to respond to difficulties in getting new students to El Salvador, affected by U.S. State Department alerts not to travel to El Salvador. The program allows CIS to generate employment for additional teachers as well as provide students with quality Spanish language courses in the context of Salvadoran culture and reality. To date we have had 120 students and generated employment for 12 on-line Spanish teachers.

Classes are 100% personalized to meet the students needs and wants.  Classes are $15.00/hour and last 2 hours each ($30.00/class).

These two hour classes with experienced teachers from the CIS can be tailored to fit each individual student’s wants.  Online classes will combine language teaching with reflection on the social, political and cultural realities, similar to our Spanish Classes in El Salvador.

 Introduction 

El Salvador shares the social and political experiences of most countries of Central America: a small ruling elite, abject poverty, foreign interference and domination, and civil war.  Compounding and exacerbating the situation, El Salvador is prone to volcanoes, earthquakes and floods.  The people that came together to form the Romero Community suffered through these adversities, displaced by the war, Hurricane Mitch and the 2001 earthquakes.  They asked the Centro de Intercambio y Solidaridad, CIS, to accompany them on their quest for land, permanent homes and dignity and a future for their children.  The combined effort is The Romero Community Development, Land & Dignified Housing Project.
