Our Material


Most of the material we use is developed by the director of the school, a linguist who studied in Zurich, Switzerland, and who has more than 30 years of experience teaching Spanish and Quechua in both Switzerland and Bolivia. The material reflects life within the neighborhood in which the students live and attend school, as well as the daily reality of Cochabamba, Bolivia and Latin America. Teaching materials are drawn from own texts, official history books, oral traditions, Bolivian and Latin American literature, ethnographies, and various other publications. We believe that the learning process is more comprehensive, interesting, and rapid by incorporating all of the senses as well as by focusing on reading, speaking, and writing. In order for this to happen, however, the learning material must fit the context, be up-to-date and representative of the surrounding reality.


The material is frequently revised, corrected, implemented and brought up to date because it must fit the specific needs of each student, and because the process of teaching and learning is an exchange of information, an iterative process which needs continued actualization.
