9 Exotic And Healthy Fruits From Colombia

Being the second largest exporter of flowers after the Netherlands, and also declared as having the best coffee in the world, it’s hard to understand why this aspect of Colombia is often overlooked. Colombia has a plethora of exotic and healthy fruits, that if you’re visiting from the States or Europe, you may never have seen or even heard of.

The array of exotic and healthy fruits in Colombia can be seen and smelt everywhere you go. Whether you’re in the supermarket, local market or walking by street vendors, these fruits are as common in Colombia as apples and oranges are in other parts of the west. The rainbow of colours and smells will be hard to miss.

Here is a video of Zorro Spanish teacher and Colombian native, Laura Reyes showcasing some of the exotic fruits that are found in Colombia, and also the many different health benefits that these fruits provide.

So why Zorro Spanish?

When it comes to learning Spanish, learn in a way that suits you, and enables you to have an effective and personal experience.  You don’t want to be left going over and over the same thing without any success, you want to interact and delve into Spanish discussion within a few lessons, and gain fluency fast. If you want somewhere to go that can offer you complete success when learning Spanish, look no further than Zorro Spanish, here’s three reasons why.


It’s Productive

With the use of video platform Zoom (Similar to skype but better for interactive classes), Zorro Spanish allows you to interact with your tutor in a way that is most effective. Some companies only offer their services through Skype which is limited. With Zoom you not only talk with your tutor, but the ability to screen share helps to put words and phrases discussed onto the page fast. You can also use the chat feature and share links and photos. The tutors have Spanish as their native language; this authenticity enables you to learn well. Pronounce the language correctly and clearly, in a way that the native speakers will understand. 


It’s Personal

The lessons are personalised to fit your level. Learn in a way that will help you to soak up the language, through methods that meet your needs, and help you to best progress. The teachers direct the classes to suit you and allow you to best engage the way you want, whatever the subject. Whether you want to have discussions about real life issues or learn the grammar of the language, you learn at your own capacity. 


It’s Practical

Working your way through apps like Duolingo, or websites like Babbel, can often be tedious and leave you frustrated, rather that fluent in your desired language. Zorro Spanish is practical; you just book your lesson, set up your Zoom account and show up to the lesson on time. As easy as one, two, three. The teachers prepare everything else. You’ll even receive an email an hour before the lesson to remind you of when the lesson starts. You will receive a link and when it’s time for your class, click the link and your teacher will be there waiting for you. Yes, it's that easy!

However, having some knowledge of the local language can go a long way in ensuring you have a much more enjoyable and pleasant experience while abroad, from taking public transport to dining out and saving money. With Spanish being the official native language in 20 countries from Europe to the Caribbean and throughout the Americas, you will have abundance of destinations to explore while utilising your skills.


2. Improves your job prospects
