"This course really explains all the possible ways to teach in Brazil and how to deal with even the smallest problems. It has good tips and most important access to some useful websites. I really liked the fact that it not only provides information about where to go and how to look for jobs, but it actually gives some tips to be a good teacher.
It's the best information source you can get, written by a person who has truly gone through everything in the course."
