i just read your e mail, and you and your husband sound very nice, offering to get people in contact with your sister for some help.
my boyfriend and I, ( he's english, I'm american) are planning to move to florianopolis in september or october. we are both teachers and plan to find work when we arrive. If we could contact your sister, maybe she could help us find an apartment for a few weeks, while we look for something permanent. I cna be contacted by e mail, firstname.lastname@example.org
thank you for all your help, and any advice you could give.

Regarding working and staying in Brazil:
You can get a 3 month tourist visa renewed for another 3, total of 6. After that, it's supposedly done for that year, and have to leave the country for another 6 months before returning. I haven't heard of anyone getting around that, but maybe you could payoff the right official. Don't count on it.
Regarding the work for foreigners; difficult to work legally in Brazil and the government don't pass out work visas easily either. It's possible to give private English lessons, which would require some networking and teaching skills.

Regarding going to school in Brazil: Need to speak Portuguese fluently to pull that off. Not unless you are just planning to take a basic language course, you probably wouldn't get too far with the university. Brazilians speak very little English, although you can get by if you have good Spanish.
