Our Learn English program, offers English language classes to adolescents (aged 12 to 18) from the favelas Pavão-Pavãozinho and Cantagalo, for free. The classes are interactive and creative and take place in our classroom, in the library of Solar Meninos de Luz.
Classes take place twice a week, for an hour and a half, with a maximum of 12 students per class.
We focus on speaking, listening and writing, to best support the learning of the English language. Using a wide variety of interactive games and exercises, we encourage our students to speak clearly.
All our programs use Positive Discipline to create democratic classrooms. We want to give our students our full attention and provide a fun way to learn English. Our teachers are native English-speaking volunteers, with a professional teaching background or are ESL certified, so we can offer our students the best learning opportunities.
