    Description

    Hello, workawayers! Welcome to a conversation course.
    We are an English speaking house located in Cabo Frio- RJ Brazil.
    Teaching English is our main goal.
    - As part of our program, you must be a native English speaker in order to participate-
    What do we expect from our volunteers?

    You'd be responsible for teaching our students as they are eager to understand different cultures and get to know people from abroad. Usually, we discuss complex subjects such as psychology, behavior, politics and anything else that can make the students reflect on themselves and society.
    We love watching TED videos and discuss them.
    Therefore, they improve their speaking skills through the subject.
    Normally, we have 10 students per group.
    Portuguese is not allowed during the time our students are inside the house. We must provide them a full immersion in the language.
    However, we can happily take some time to teach you Portuguese or even invite one of our students to do it.
    We have our own methodology, which we call "subliminal grammar" or "Natural process".
    We'd love to show you our city and be friends with you!
    Come have fun with us and share your fantastic trip adventures.

    About the creator:
    I'm an English teacher and a business person. I've always loved the English language since I was a kid. Though I hadn't had the opportunity to learn it in a language school, I did it by myself. It opened up new doors to me. I've met incredible people around the world. Since the age of 18, I've been working as an ESL teacher.

    In 2014 I started my own business, I created a conversation course. Which is an English speaking house where learners can improve their language skills through practicing.

    My Wife, Gabriela, is an amazing person with a great heart. She is our administrator. Very committed, she always makes sure that we are loyal to our values.

    Expect to be embraced by our students and us. Our school is our house, and our students are like family, and so are you.

    Welcome!

    I'm looking for language lovers who are eager to share their knowledge with our students. Mainly their own culture, so we can better understand the guest's roots. We love learning new things.
    People who are passionate about teaching are more than welcome.

Shaun and the avocado. He was our second volunteer together with Kris. One of the funniest guys we've met, incredible sense of humour, lovely, athletic, food lover, runner and teacher. Bro, come back soon! We have more avocados for you :D

Kris, guitar player, surfist, teacher and friend. Fluent in Portuguese, 25% Norwegian, from Canada but Brazilian by soul. Kris, nossa casa é sua casa. ;) Kris was our second volunteer together with Shaun.
Love is the word to describe what we feel for our students.
