The Nikitas Language Abroad Schools Teach English in Brazil program was designed with the aim of placing foreign university students in Brazilian families who wish to improve their language skills. Host families provide room and board to students in exchange for conversational English lessons. Having the opportunity to tutor the members of a family is in itself a learning experience. Sessions provide opportunities for exchanging information about languages, customs, and cultures. Tutors spend up to 15 hours per week helping their host families improve their English skills.
