Living in Brazil

Brazilian culture is naturally warm and inviting. They have a strong love for people and generally won’t mind if you can’t communicate using Portuguese (the native language of Brazil).

Teachers will be provided lodging, either in an apartment or the International school (there are living accommodations available there). A new option that is sometimes available to teachers is to stay with a Christian Brazilian host family. This would allow you the unique experience of being completely immersed in the culture and provide you with time to practice your Portuguese (Learning Portuguese is not required, but why not pick up the local language if you can?). If you are interested in being placed in a host family, please indicate this during your interview.
