TEFL Jobs in Brazil
Brazilian language schools see hiring foreign nationals to teach English as prohibitively expensive.

If you choose to take this route, you’ll need to do a twice yearly border run to a neighboring country to renew your visa.

How much you earn will depend on your experience and level of TEFL certification with wages ranging from 1,500 to 3,000 Real (US$850 to US$1,500).
