Teacher teaches Portuguese for free to immigrant job seekers in Brazil



Teacher teaches Portuguese for free to immigrant job seekers in Brazil

Everyone can help with their enzymes! And that’s what a Santa Catarina teacher does. Anelede Foizer teaches Portuguese to Haitians and Venezuelans looking for work in Brazil.

And he does it for free, out of love for his neighbor, for almost seven years in Brusque, in the interior of the state. Over 300 students have already taken the Anelede course.

And soon the result of the work appeared. Several immigrants learned to speak our language and got jobs in the city, which is considered an industrial center with many opportunities.

special class

The idea of ​​helping immigrants came from the teacher’s sister, Marilanda Foyser. She is a businesswoman and has started taking in several immigrants in search of work. She needed employees, but, unfortunately, people did not understand what she was talking about.

The businesswoman then suggested to Aneleda that she start a project to teach these people the language so that they can communicate more easily. “At first I thought, ‘Oh my God, that’s a lot,’” Mariland said.

So the teacher began to teach our language to immigrants. Classes are now 20 and meet every Thursday night at Araujo Brusque School in the San Luis area.

started without support

At first, Anelede had no support, but thanks to her great willpower, the project worked for several months.

“There was no table, no chair, no picture, no material to work with. I followed him and got 20 tables, 20 chairs, pencils, an eraser, notebooks, books, everything I needed,” the teacher recalls.

She sought donations from the municipality’s schools, including those that were being renovated and no longer used the items.

In addition to Portuguese, the teacher also lectures with selected guests and on topics that can contribute to the life of students in Brazil. Subjects include reading, poetry, food, geography, history, traffic safety and the laws of Brazil.


Upon completion of the classes, students receive a certificate confirming that they can communicate in Portuguese.

According to the teacher, the document is important so that the immigrant can prove to the company that he studied the language, or even to obtain a passport.

“This year, Araújo Brusque will provide students with a test frequency and score certification. At the end of the year, they are required to have at least 75% of attendance in order to receive a diploma, ”explains the person in charge of the project.

Student who tagged the project

Anelede fondly remembers a particular student who celebrated the project. Haitian Hendy Bernard entered the course and made it clear to the professor that he wanted to go to university. With this in mind, the teacher strengthened the student’s learning.

His dedication was remarkable. In addition to the fact that he never missed classes, the immigrant was always ready to learn.

He joked that he couldn’t even have an accent, because I demanded a lot from him. He had a goal to go to university, and I did what he asked me to do.”

The student participated in the project from 2015 to 2016. It took him 1 year and 2 months to learn Portuguese.

In 2017, he entered the university, where he studied production technology.

Over time, Anelede lost contact with the former student, but the last time she heard from him, she was informed that he had graduated and was starting a family.

“It struck me because he wanted to go to university. I answered his request, and he received it,” he said with satisfaction.

Help outside of class

In addition to classes, the teacher also helps the students at different times. Since they are immigrants, and many of them are refugees, there are problems with passports.

She also began to help students deal with the situation. In addition to helping with referrals to keep documentation up to date, enrolling children in schools and kindergartens, accessing medical care, the teacher turns to lawyers for help, which is necessary in some cases.

“We welcome the project. With the help of Professor Tatiana Amorim, who already helped me in 2018, I can make these other calls, for example, call the consulate, the Federal Police, to understand the situation of each of them,” he concluded.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
