Accommodation is free, but you pay for anything else like transport, food and drinks and also some teaching material as paper if you want to use it. There is a kitchen and a fridge at the Escolinha and small supermarkets are near. The process of application is very simple, you don´t need to send Diplomas or any references, it´s okay if things are new for you. If you have interest to come you are more than welcome, just if there are too many people you can´t come or have to bring your own hammock.
Everything is on your own responsibility, Alex is organising everything via internet, in Itacoatiara Donna Maria will help you with everything, she is living next door but doesn´t speak any English..
