1. Colombia has a large mountain system called the Andes. It divides into 3 branches that cross Colombia all the way. They are just called west, central and east branch. Right in front of the caribbean coast, a separate mountain emerges and it's called the "Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta" which is the highest peak of Colombia at 5775 mts. In the Andean system the highest peaks can be found around 4000 - 5000 mts and there are some major volcanoes too.
Due to it's location, Colombia has 2 major coast lines, in the pacific ocean and the caribbean sea. Most population are of african american descendants there. Major Rivers include : Magdalena River, Cauca River, and of course the Amazon River which is the natural border with Brazil.
Since the Andes Mountains are very high, the climate there is cold moslty all year round, regardless that this is a tropical country situated right under the Equator line, but being so high up will give you cold weather. Bogota, being the capital, and situated at 2600 mts has an all year temperature of 15 C aprox (just use a Farenheit converter online to figure out weather in F). Mountains in Colombia make it possible to find all kinds of weather, pretty much constant all year round since they don't have seasons there. Anything above 2400 is cold weather and above 3500 is very cold and/or covered in ice/snow.
2. Universities are located in all major towns of Colombia, you can find public or private ones. But the best ones are located in Bogota DC, and usually people prefer going to a private one, even though they are more expensive it can guarantee the quaility of education you get as well as your professional future (meaning jobs & income). Some public universities are very good but that is not the rule for all.
3. The flag of the country has the following colors: yellow that symbolizes the gold and richness of the land, blue which symbolizes the oceans and red which symbolizes the blood lost in battles fighting for independence from the Realm of Spain. This is a link to a pic of it http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://2.bp...
4. Currently 1USD = 2000 colombian pesos in average. It varies daily, depending on how the money market is behaving, it can go up 40 colombian pesos a day or down by the same amount, less or more, but for quite a while it has remained on an average of 2000 COP (colombian pesos).
5. 60% of colombian people live under the poverty line, that means people with daily income of usd 3 or less. So many many people don't even have the means to go to elementary school. they live in rural areas and just learn to grow land or which ever activity their family has been doing for generations. These people really just struggle to survive. Most people (middle class) completes high school and tries to follow a technical career or attend at least a public university (where fees are almost non existant therefor affordable) to at least have a career and that way ensure better jobs and income in the future. Only rich people (the minority) gets to go to a private college and do also postgraduate studies, etc. These people usually attend bilingual schools so they learn how to write, read and speak in english properly, since it is a necessity nowadays.
Feel free to email me (email@example.com) if you need more info, most info is available in spanish so that's why you can't find much.Source(s): I was born and live in Bogota, Colombia.

Me thinks you could actually get a book with this information. We used to call this studying. It's kinda old-fashioned. But worth a try. Else just post the email address of your teacher so we can respond directly. Why waste your time?
