Tuesdays and Thursdays we give classes for around thirty adults who are from the area. Some students are from Rocinha, some from Rio das Pedras, another favela close to us, and from Taquara. They all have different reasons for taking English classes. Some people just love English, while others work in the tourism industry and need to improve their English in order to get more work. The ages go from 18 up until 58. It is an even balance of men and women, and the atmosphere is relaxed and happy.
Right now on Tuesdays and Thursdays we give three classes: a Beginning Level Adults, Intermediate, and and Advanced Seminar for the small group f advanced students we have. Check back soon for a student profile to meet one of our students!
Here are some pictures of Thursday, August 2, 2012.
Obrigada to Voluntourists Christine for giving the beginners class and to Naomi for giving the advanced class. We really appreciate your help and you do a fantastic job.
