Teaching English in Brazil
Everything related to teaching English abroad in Brazil.
April 15, 2014 | Fran Zarnitzky 1
Learning a language isn’t easy. Yet many of us still waltz into a foreign country figuring we’ll pick it up as we go. While I confess to subscribing to this theory when traveling abroad for vacations or short trips, I am now living in Brazil on a more permanent basis and I can’t just leave my Portuguese acquisition up to the fates.

It’s the holy grail of apartments in my hometown of New York City. However, a space with a balcony is usually well beyond the average city dweller´s budget, especially in Manhattan.
But I hoped to change that when I got a job teaching English abroad and moved to Uberaba, a mid-sized city in southeast Brazil. I thought surely there would be ample opportunity to find an affordable apartment with something like a terrace in a little-known city in South America.

“Have you been to Disney World?”
“Do all Americans eat hamburgers?”
“Do you own a gun?”
Even after living in Brazil for two years, these are still the top three questions I get. (Mickey Mouse and fast food being far more popular inquiries than the American right to bear arms).
Still, I prefer my current reality to the one I was living before, hemmed in by a cubicle and dealing with a daily grind that was less than inspiring.
