Country: Brazil,
Type: Teaching & Education, Working with children,
Organisation: Travellers Worldwide

Secure your place on this project for just £99 Deposit - Limited Time Offer! Teach English to deserving children who are full of spirit and enthusiasm. You can also teach Art, Drama and Music, or you can combine projects, for example, teaching Art combined with teaching English. You'll be based in stunning, buzzing Rio, a hot tropical paradise! This is a stimulating yet laid-back experience in one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in the world.

Our projects are very well structured but, as with all things Brazilian, also pretty laid back! You don't need any qualifications to participate in a teaching placement in Brazil, just a passion to help children improve their knowledge of the English language. Teaching can be extremely satisfying and rewarding, especially when you are able to see an improvement in the children’s’ language abilities. The moment you hear a child use a new piece of vocabulary or use a verb tense correctly will make you feel so incredibly proud and you will know for certain that all the time and effort you have put into teaching has been worthwhile.  

Primarily we offer English and Sports placements, all in the northern part of Rio. You'll teach students from a variety of backgrounds and you are likely to learn a great deal about their community and their culture. Many of the children that you will teach are from some of the poorest areas in Rio, but they are full of life and their cheeky manner is infectious and endearing! 

Whether you want to be helping out teaching the ‘little ones’, or, whether you want to challenge some of the older students (in their teens) – it’s up to you! All of the children could really use your time, energy and affection; whether they are just starting their education or they are preparing to go out into the world of work.
