English Sensei is an innovative eLearning initiative promoting collaboration between educational institutions, community groups, museums, galleries and photographic clubs in Colombia.
It envisages the establishment of a virtual network of educational and cultural partners within Japan that wish to jointly collaborate by sharing digital learning materials in areas such as:
- languages (English foundation courses and occupation-specific English; Spanish);
- cross-cultural education;
- art and architecture
- photography of top tourist attractions in Colombia.
