Julia wants to learn English so she can get a job when she leaves school. Unemployment is high in Brazil but with English Julia could work in a hotel or restaurant. Julia’s teacher, Emilia, has never heard English spoken. She learnt her English from a textbook, and she is teaching Julia and her class of 40 in the same way.

Emilia would love you to stay in her home with her young family if you would speak English to her and her children.  Julia would be thrilled if you came to Emilia’s classes and talked to them in English, played simple games with them and taught them English songs. They all know about the Beatles!

Can you spare a few weeks of your life to change Julia’s dramatically? You would make lifelong friends in Brazil and learn to live in an exciting, vibrant new culture. Your life too would never be the same.
