Teacher Training Schools
Rio de Janeiro is renowned for its festive atmosphere, especially during Carnival—for five days every year, the city comes to a virtual standstill as parties, dancing, parades, and samba music fill the streets. But Rio is also a modern business center, home to the headquarters of some of Brazil's largest national and multinational companies. As a TEFL trainee in Rio de Janeiro, you will find yourself in a fascinating cosmopolitan city with nearly unlimited restaurants, businesses, tourist attractions, nightlife options and, of course, beaches!
