Maybe you’re a career English teacher and you want to try something different. Maybe you are in love with Brazil and want to find a job that will let you stay in the country longer. Or maybe you have no idea what you’re doing with your life and you think teaching English in Brazil sounds cool.
Regardless of your motivations, most of the questions that you have about English teaching can be found in the English Teaching FAQ.
