Sample Student Experience

This 20-year old American  participant had a "wonderful experience, thank you. I am really enjoying Brazilian culture and people. Although Cataguases is a little quiet for my taste, I am still having fun. I was in Rio for a few days last week when Tatiana had class in Sao Paulo. The teaching has been going okay; ...she has only received about 12~ days of classes since I have been here.  I am confident she will learn a lot by the time I leave in July."

Teach English in BrasilThis program was designed with the objective of placing foreign university students in Brazilian families who wish to improve their language skills.

The host families will provide room and board to the students who, in exchange, will give conversational lessons in their native language to all or any family member. Having the opportunity to tutor the members of a family is in itself a learning experience. The sessions may be a time for exchanging information about languages, customs, and cultures.

The tutor will spend up to 15 hours per week helping their host family to improve their English skills, who will accommodate the student for a period of 4 , 8 or 12 weeks.

Duration:  4-12 weeks
