Teaching English in Brazil: At a Glance
ESL positions are available everywhere in Brazil - from small schools in remote villages to large corporations in big cities such as Rio de Janeiro. When they're not teaching, ESL instructors get to spend their time exploring the Amazon Rainforest, swimming the dolphin-filled waters of Praia da Pipa Beach, or taking part in the world's biggest party - Carnival.

Samba and Cerveja are the highlights of the famous Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. But Carnival is not the only time of year that Brazil parties. Brazil is known for its entertainment, nightlife, and beautiful beaches. The growing economy allows for the opportunity to also teach in large corporations. The sunny weather and fun-loving people make this a popular teaching destination.
