Teaching English in Colombia as a native English speaker is a much desired occupation. It is a country waiting for tourism to arise and one thing holding it back is the lack of English speaking throughout most of the country. Medellin used to be known for drug lords and violence and Bogota was one of the most violent cities, both are now a popular tourist escapes.
