Schools Colombia schools aren’t like the schools you get here because they have much bigger classrooms than ours and they sit on tables were the chairs are connected to the tables. The chairs that they sit on are like plastic deck chairs that we would sit on in our gardens and the tables are plastic not wooden. They don’t have anything on the walls like posters and things that tell people what they have done in lessons. Colombia classrooms are very plain. This is my school.
