Hello everyone. My name is Jairo Galeano Casanova, I am 26 years old and I’m from Colombia, a beautiful country in the north part of South America. My home city is called Pasto and is located in the south part of the country and I really love living there.
About my professional life: I have been studying English for 5 years and working as an English teacher for 2. Now I have the chance to share my culture and language with all people of Willamette as a language assistant; my job is fascinating and I am learning something new every day. I am really glad to find great people who are kind, nice and are willing to help.
My life here in Salem has been exciting since the first time I got here; there are wonderful places to go, really nice weather and so many people who I get along really well with. I am surprised to find the amount of people who speak Spanish here; it is awesome. My plans for this year are to share my language, my culture, to make good friends and to get to know as much as possible about the English language.
For all of those interested in getting to know a little more about a magnificent and spectacular country, here is a bit of what we are and what we have.
