Hello all !

I'm interested in relocating to Brazil (although mostly for next year when the World Cup will be on) - I wanted to know it was feasible teaching both English AND French there (I am a native bilingual of both languages + Canadian citizen + BA in Linguistics at the University of Toronto). Is there any demand for French in Brazil at all?

I'll have about 3500$CDN in startup costs and have no issues with living super frugally - with that said the only thing to keep in mind is that I owe ~250$CDN/month towards my school loans, so I would have to make at least a good enough salary to feed and house myself (again frugally) + that extra bit.

Again, I have experience teaching both languages and I am a native speaker in both. I also do lots of side-gigs in film editing, sound recording, and graphic design which hopefully will supplement my income when I find fellow artists (and as such I would need to be in a biggish city with some sort of artsy bent).

I would appreciate any advice you could give me !

Ate logo !

Ian
