If you love teaching and being with children, experiencing Brazil as a community teacher is something that you will really enjoy!

English is a language used for communication worldwide, so by helping to teach these children you are giving them an invaluable skill that broadens their opportunities.

Generally, public schools offer very few english classes throughout the week. Therefore they have a language school that offers extra hours for those who need it. These schools offer classes for kindergarten kids up to adults. This is where you mainly will be teaching, mostly the older students. But you might also get the chance to teach in either primary, secondary or high schools around Manaus and you will have plenty of guidance working together with local teachers while following their school curriculum throughout the week.

The school here is not always so formal, and in fact, it’s the informal interactions with them that will have the most impact! Simply by having someone to practice with and prompt conversations in english, you’ll be able to help them work on their pronunciation and vocabulary.

Exchanging your experiences and culture will be great way to open dialogue and broaden their worldviews…and yours too!
