The best option is our summer internship opportunity – what makes it unique is the fact that it’s among the shortest teaching commitments you’ll find at 4 months. It’s designed to make sure you can fit it into the summer break between your university studies (or make it part of your gap year and travel all around South America). Most other jobs teaching English abroad will require you to commit for a full year or more. As a teaching intern, you’ll receive a small stipend of about USD $600, shared housing in a small city in Brazil, and health coverage. The modest pay makes this position more of a volunteer commitment. While you won’t save as much as with other ESL jobs, it’s a life-changing chance to be in a beautiful South American country. You can also check out a similar government program we offer in Colombia. Outside of the internship, Brazil has a thriving private English language instruction industry – however, the work visa process for foreigners is extremely complicated. Because of that, the vast majority of instructors at chains like Cultura Inglesa are Brazilian citizens.
