Language Learning at Caritas Rio de Janeiro
An instrumental Portuguese course is offered, with methodologies, contents and pedagogical practices adapted to the refuge theme. Through this apprenticeship, the refugee can understand and assert his basic rights, interact with the city, seek placement in the labor market, and have access to education independently and effectively. The course is held in partnership with the Faculty of Arts and the Institute of Education of the State University of Rio de Janeiro, in the dependencies of the university, and has the help of 13 volunteers, who act as teachers of Portuguese, using four mediating languages: French, English, Arabic and Spanish. About 100 people, divided into seven classes.
