Are you interested in teaching English in Brazil? Hi, we are Sarah and Carlos, two Canadians who have an English school in Minas Gerais in the southeast of Brazil.   We are looking for visiting foreign native level English speakers (American, Canadian, British or Australian – non-native-speaking  applications not accepted) who would like to teach English with us for 5 months or longer in a quiet town (next semester is August to December). We are looking for a sociable, adaptive, non-smoking people person – with some teaching experience and a university degree, communication skills and travel experience are a must.  Female preferred.

We offer free shared accommodation (with one roommate), plus salary. The weekly teaching hours will be 26. Salary will be R$2500 a month.  (Exchange rate today U$1 = R$3.10) We offer a R$2500 bonus at the end of the contract to help cover airfare. We also pay R$150 ( one hundred and fifty reais) a month to help cover lunch on working days. In the afternoon teachers have a snack with us.

Our students ages go from 7 to 70 and classes are divided by age groups with a max of 6 kids and 5 adults. It’s a great opportunity to meet new friends and learn another culture and language. Eligible applicants can speak to other teachers who are teaching here or have taught here about their experiences with our school.   For more information, contact us via email at the address given on the job heading.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


This particular chapter was fairly straight forward. It basically explains how a teacher should handle their classroom, along with the different personalities in that room as well. This chapter gave me a better understand of what to expect when teacher around 15-20 people in a class. From what you should do every class and what you should never do in class which can possibly affect the student in a negative way.In the first video the teacher came on too strong and unfriendly towards the students and didn’t take time to put them at ease but in the second video he came in with a more friendly and uplifting manner and talk to them more comely on their level and put some humor in it as he was talking to them and tried to pronounce their names he had them write and hang on the desk so the class was more responses to him
