We are looking for passionate volunteers interested in sharing their culture and enriching the lives of our students from all age groups through teaching English. Volunteers will be able to get to know the countryside of Brazil, experience calm and tranquility. We are a small private English school in a country city in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Volunteers who choose this program will be received with arms open and will be treated as family. It is going to be their home away from home.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Volunteers who choose this program will benefit from the cultural exchange. They will be able to lear the language, local culture and eat local food. They will also get to go biking or hiking in the countryside and visit beautiful waterfalls.
The school currently has about 60 students from different age groups, but mostly teenagers. Volunteers will teach English to students of different age groups or levels.
Volunteers will be asked to contribute with 25 hours per week. The schedule will be given before their arrival. We have our method of teaching which we will show to the workawayer so he/she can follow. But basically, students have a textbook that must be followed. Volunteers will receive a the teacher's guide book to guide them through the classes. They will also have to prepare extra activities, like games, related to what is being taught in class.
