TEFL Natal | TEFL Brazil

Our TEFL course in Brazil is located in the amazing coastal city of Natal. Aptly known as the ‘City of Sun’, Natal enjoys a pleasant 360 days of sunshine a year, with a comfortable average temperature of 28°C. Natal is also easily accessible from both Europe and North America as its pivotal location in the north east of the country means it receives direct flights from a number of major cities around the world.

Natal is particularly famous for having the best air quality in the whole of the Americas and is also blessed with more than 20 incredible beaches, each with crystal clear waters and beautiful coral reefs. During the weekends you will be free to relax on the beach of your choice and soak up the equatorial sun, although with so many other attractions available, you will have plenty of excuses to escape the heat and make this not just a TEFL course, but a holiday to remember. This is definitely one time when small is beautiful: Natal is large enough to be exciting, yet small enough to explore its length and breadth.

One thing you will not want to miss during your stay in Natal is a demonstration of the unique martial art form called capoeira. This fascinating mix of martial art moves, acrobatics, dance and music was first developed by African slaves and is now hugely popular across Brazil and particularly in the Natal region. For those watching, Capoeira can look like an elaborate dance ritual; however, for those in the dance, the movements are sharp, deliberate and can be deadly upon contact.

Other attractions that you will probably want to visit during your stay in Natal include the Fort of Holy Kings, a star-shaped fort that was built by Portuguese settlers in 1598 and still contains some old cannons and other relics from the colonial period. The Farol de Mae Luiza lighthouse is also worth a visit as it offers some spectacular views of the surrounding area, including the beautiful beaches of Areia Preta, Genipabu and Ponta Negra.

Another interesting place to visit is the Natal tourism centre which is housed in a fascinating former prison building.

The centre has a handicraft fair and an art gallery that displays a collection of wooden, fabric and glass pieces which depict the region's history and culture. You can also get a taste of the regions musical heritage by attending the ‘Forro con Turista’ which puts on a spectacular performance every Thursday.
