Teaching Disadvantaged Children in Foz do Iguassu, Brazil.

         

I was very nervous about going to Brazil as I didn’t really know what to expect, but once I got there I met another volunteer who showed me around and I adapted to life before I began teaching!

I really enjoyed teaching and interacting with the students. My 5 weeks went so quickly but I had an amazing experience that I will never forget. The people were really nice and I felt I missed them all once I left. Foz do Iguaçu is a lovely town, and the people really friendly. The Hotel was also very nice and the staff always made an effort to speak to you, even if they didn’t know much English.

I would recommend this place to anyone else because I really enjoyed my trip to Brazil, and I would love to go back some time.

Can you describe a typical day?

I started my training by sitting in, on a couple of classes, which I found very beneficial as it allowed me to meet all the students and staff in the school before starting teaching on my own.

The teaching system was not what I expected it to be, English is taught through commands for the first few months of learning, I thought this was a good way to begin as the students had to think and act in English. At first the students seemed very shy and didn’t talk much but I soon progressed through the lessons quite quickly.
