Brazilian volunteers to teach Portuguese in the US

2021 will go down in history as a period when more and more Brazilians came closer to realizing the so-called “American Dream”. According to a report prepared by the law firm AG Immigration in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security, 12,281 citizens received American naturalization, up 47.5% from the previous year, when there were 8,323 people.

Also according to the data, Brazil ranked 15th among the countries that most requested US citizenship, behind countries such as Mexico, India, the Philippines, Cuba and China, which occupied the first positions. In addition, Brazil ranked eighth in the list of countries that received the most green cards over the past year: 17,952 Brazilians received a document giving them the right to live and work there permanently. Compared to 2020, when 16,746 documents were issued, this number represents an increase of 7.2%.

Faced with these signs, there is a growing number of Brazilians having children away from their homeland and therefore little exposure to the country’s language and culture. At the same time, these children and adolescents do not fully speak English.

In this case, a Brazilian proofreader and translator has recently started to develop volunteer work with these families. Lindaura Moreira found that teaching Portuguese is still a rarity for Americans, Brazilian children or not.

“I give voluntary lessons to the children of Brazilians who are naturalized American citizens, an activity aimed at improving the daily lives of these people, empowering them in the United States. They were born here, they know the language, they communicate very well, but they are illiterate,” says Moreira.

She says that working as a proofreader and translator in Brazil helps her teach Portuguese to foreigners, including on a voluntary basis. Although these are different activities, they [tradução e ensino] ends with weaving. Translation work forces me to expand my vocabulary, and this enriches my vocabulary, which is the set of words that people of a given language have at their disposal for oral or written self-expression,” explains.

Considering that the United States is one of Brazil’s main trading partners, ranking second in the ranking of Brazilian exports, the expert concludes, “these good trade relations between countries make English proficiency even more beneficial and also affect the interests of foreigners in learning our language. “.
