I started as a cashier assistant in a supermarket chain, seeking to grow I began to study at EnglishWorks, as I am now able to speak with foreigners, I gained visibility and now I work with customers promoting the brand and could even work with foreign customers during the Olympic Games of Rio.

The advantage of EnglishWorks is the teachers, they help you in everything you need and also the online platform. EnglishWorks brought a lot of learning to my life.
Yago, 13 years old
Another difference that I see in this course, is that they offer a chance to interact to foreigners , which are volunteers. This is very cool because you can have a conversation, so this is very different from other courses I had the change to take.
Daniel, 32 years old
Before if I had to talk to a foreigner I would hide, because I didn’t know how to speak. Today I can speak and spoke with a lot of foreigners during the Olympic Games.
Igor, 13 years old
I was able to learn a lot of things, things that I didn’t know, I could learn here. The online content was an easier way to learn for me.
