Greenheart Travel’s Teach English in a Homestay program in Brazil offers you the opportunity to become an English tutor with a local host family, while sharing in their everyday life. Immerse yourself in this colorful, fun and warm culture as you stay with a host family, practice your Portuguese and start to feel like a true Brazilian!
Participants spend 15 hours per week tutoring the host family English to improve their language skills.
