Thanks for the suggestions! They were all valid. The 1st week was less scary than I had thought it would be. All we know that teaching in Brazil's state schools is tricky. However, in my school the number of students is reduced, about 25 per group (not ideal but believe me, I've already seen 40 in the same group!), they've got 2 hours of English lessons per week and a coursebook with audio CDs. We've got an interactive board, a projector and a computer in all classrooms, and the pay is higher than Brazil's average. On the other hand, the level of student's proficiency in English is still low.
All I did in the fisrt week was introducing myself and getting to know my students. I taught some words in English and tried to contextualize them with a bit of controlled dialogs. Bringing in native speakers is a great idea, but I doubt that it will be possible to be done regularly. I will be totally satisfied if those kids end up speaking some good deal of English by December.
In many coutries around the world students learn how to speak English in their regular schools. I wish this was true here in Brazil too. I don't like the fact that there are so many private language institutions around.
