The Experience

We are located on the banks of the São Francisco River, in the city of Petrolina/PE, next to JuazeiroBA. Our school trains young people in brilliant professionals to work in the market and also ecologically conscious citizens and committed to a more just and egalitarian society! We have several courses in addition to English and we're looking for volunteers to help them with their English skills and also to show them new perspectives :)

A ideia combinada ao início seria que eu daria aulas de espanhol a crianças da região e falaria um pouco da minha história. Mas ao chegar, passei por espécie de "entrevista", e como não falo inglês para participar do curso Cebrac English, fui deixado de lado e não participei de nada.
Me senti muito ofendido como me trataram nessa "entrevista". Disseram que não sirvo pra nada porque não falo inglês. Não disseram com essas palavras, mas foi como eu entendi. Fiquei só 3 dias.
Petrolina-PE é uma Cidade interessante e a Sara é uma boa anfitriã.
