Brazil TEFL Jobs in Brazil

Teach and Travel in Brazil

Brazil is the fifth-largest country in the world and there are good job prospects in all of the larger cities (as well as some smaller ones). Qualified teachers in Brazil can usually find work easily. Trying to arrange employment from outside Brazil can be considerably more 'hit or miss'. Salaries usually afford teachers a comfortable lifestyle.

What we offer you while you are here:

While you are here, you are going to live in one of the student’s families. They will send you information and pictures of them and their house. They usually become very excited about the idea of having a foreign person at their homes. They will offer you room and board. You will only spend your own money with food if you, for any reason, don’t eat at home. If you are interested, we can enroll you in a Portuguese course at the local University, without any charge.

You will work at most 25 hours a week. The school will pay you monthly an amount of U$ 250,00 (two hundred and fifty dollars), that is about R$650,00 (Six hundred fifty Reais). We know that this money is not enough for anyone to live in any other country in the world, but here most of the population make R$ 290,00 a month. The prices here are very low compared with any American or European countries.
