  • The oddest thing about this program is that it does not conform with data gorge and certainties. At the end of three months, there are no more skilled or more skilled nor, of course, wiser. Although well thought of knowing that you know nothing is at least a good start (and as Socrates said that a handful of years ago.) But the most valuable thing here is not the answer, but the stubborn determination to look. With curiosity and honesty. With ambition. And with the tools, though, that will put at your fingertips teachers parading around the room. And as the road in search of the truth we walk in a changing world-we have repeated in different colors, tastes and languages, “what is clear is that the world belongs to those who combine in gerund

  • The accent colors: When you get to color the words … that is GCL. The major lesson that I have received these months is that stress greatly clarifies the meaning of a word, because our contexts are so different … Now I see how my friend David, of Venezuela, speaking of orange-enthusiasm, success, “my golden Ecuadorian friends speak with such clarity of ideas and the warmth, the Panamanian purple speak, conveying the magic and mystery means to separate (or join one?) two oceans; hear Argentina in light blue, color linked to intelligence and consciousness, and hear Brazilian green: nature, growth, exuberance, all Colombians speak in silver, tenacious in their struggle for peace, the Chilean blue inspires me stability and the Peruvians speak in yellow. Bolivia hear talking in purple: I can feel the freshness of the Bolivian people, and my friend speaks Nicaraguan red, with lots of energy. Mexican orange is so special … I do not know what colors speak in Spain, but if the color that we all share in GCL is the color of Liberty.

  • I don't think there is just one valuable lesson from the GCL Program, I think the whole experience is rewarding and you learn several things that will impact your personal, as well as your professional life. But if I have to choose, I think my biggest getaway from GCL is "never be afraid of change for everything will fit in its place"."
