I’m hoping to try to find work in TEFL at a private language school in Brazil over the above months. I have heard that many schools in Brazil want you to be in country before seriously considering hiring you. That is fair enough and I am more than happy to travel to Brazil with a view of securing a job once there. I have a CELTA and a degree and experience teaching English.
My question is, are there jobs available at this time in Brazil? From what I understand, the Brazilian school year starts in February, so will schools likely to be hiring/need to find staff around June?
