Brazil was great!

Brazil was great. I got a few regular students twice a week with two different language schools (one based in Copacabana, the other in Centro) and I got calls occasionally to do longer immersion classes which were always nice. Financially, I was doing fine with teaching classes here and there, I had free time to be a typical tourist, which is always fun. The course was pretty intensive and took up a lot of time during the first month that I was here, but it was definitely worth it because I got a better sense of how to get around and where to visit once I could get some free time (the instructors were so helpful and I don't know what I would've done without them- I have the worst sense of direction). I also think it definitely helped me prepare for teaching English abroad, because the companies that I got hired at just hand me a textbook and expect me to work straight from the book (which is very dull) but the experience I had at LanguageCorps helped me to make more creative lessons that don't put the students to sleep and still utilize the textbook.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
If you are considering to get TEFL certified, just do it! It's an awesome experience and you get to meet a lot of cool people. I honestly can't think of an easier way to find a job abroad. Looking back, the part I struggled most with was to cut the Gordian not and make the decision to do it.
