Volunteer in Brazil and teaching English in Rio de Janeiro, learning Portuguese, and providing access to one of the world’s most spoken languages.
This incredible volunteer project allows for much more than a standard teaching job. While teaching English in Rio, you will be fully submerged into the culture of the Brazilian people – and will end up learning Portuguese as well. You will have the opportunity to create bonds with students, ranging from primary aged to the elderly, teaching them the life skill of one of the worlds most spoken languages. Therefore you will be responsible for educating and creating opportunities for local people in Rio, who may not previously of had the chance to.
As a volunteer in Rio, you may witness the difference in the education provided, and as an English teacher you will have the blessed opportunity to supply further education to those eager to learn. Through working in local favelas, you will allow people access to education they previously did not see as possible – an opportunity of a lifetime!
Do not allow lack of teaching experience put you off! The project thrives from allowing English speakers to lead discussions and classes, whether that be small or larger groups. Your help will hugely impact their learning, for the better! Volunteers often help each other in planning lessons and activities, allowing for a diverse learning program. The volunteer project allows you to teach and also give you the opportunity to learn the Portuguese language.
