Tulin, whose mother arrived two days ago, has been living in Brazil for two months. As she does not speak Portuguese, Tulin says it is difficult for her to find a job and therefore she is staying at the slum as it is one of the cheaper neighbourhoods to live in. According to the National Committee for Refugees (Conare), 2,077 people fleeing the Syrian civil war have settled in Brazil, whilst a quarter of the 8,400 refugees in the Latin American country come from Syria.

Newly arrived immigrants from France (from L to R) Alexandre Pequito, Myriam Bibas and Aurelie Serraf, all of whom are from Paris, study Hebrew at Ulpan Etzion, the original residential school and absorption centre, which has taught Hebrew to tens of thousands of immigrants since 1949, in Jerusalem, January 20, 2015. For Jews coming to "the Jewish state" from all corners reached by the diaspora, the move may bring relief, but it also raises challenges: a new language and culture, unfamiliar social codes and the difficulty of finding a job. With anti-Semitism rising in France, and their worries stoked by this month's killing of four Jews in a kosher supermarket in Paris, French Jews now make up the largest group of new migrants to Israel.

A group of sex workers are taking English classes once a week in preparation for the World Cup. They hope these lessons will help them communicate better with soccer fans coming to Brazil who might use their services. During the classes, they not only learn basic vocabulary like the days of the week, but also sexual words and phrases that they use on the job. Picture taken May 12, 2014.

An ethnic Shan Buddhist monk teaches others English language at their monastery in Yangon
An ethnic Shan Buddhist monk teaches others English language at their humble monastery in Yangon September 17, 2012. Education is so poor in their remote impoverished villages that Shan children sometimes struggle to learn Burmese, the national language. Many Shan parents send their boys into the Buddhist monkhood where they receive a basic education but also better protection from Myanmar's military which is notorious for dragooning ethnic minorities as porters. Despite recent ceasefire agreements between the Myanmar government and Shan insurgents, there are still sporadic armed clashes across the region.

A young ethnic Rohingya from Myanmar and living in Malaysia, Nur Begum Shamshu Alam, 5, attends her Malay language class in Kuala Lumpur May 30, 2012. The Rohingya in Myanmar are usually landless as well as stateless, and scratch a living from low-paid casual labor. During the so-called "sailing season" between monsoons, thousands of Rohingya attempt to cross the Bay of Bengal in small, ramshackle fishing boats. Their destination: Muslim-majority Malaysia, where thousands of Rohingya work, mostly illegally. Every year up to 40 villagers head out to sea on Malaysia-bound boats. They each pay about 200,000 kyat, or $250, a small fortune by local standards. But the extended Rohingya families who raise the sum regard it as an investment. Picture taken May 30, 2012.

Chinese woman teaches Chinese language to Indians at school in Kolkata
A Chinese woman teaches the Chinese language to Indians at Zhong Wen Xue Xiao, the school of Chinese language in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata February 7, 2009. For the first time with the support of the Chinese consulate in Kolkata, a Chinese language school was set up last year followed by a monthly Chini Adda or Chinese Corner in January where both Chinese and non-Chinese people will gather to interact and promote cultural ties. Supported by the consulate, the Chini Adda is the brainchild of Madan Saraf, founder of the school of Chinese language. "We hope to make the monthly gathering into a fortnightly affair. The school we opened is also the first one to have Chinese teachers who would also teach phonetics," says Saraf. REUTERS/Parth Sanyal (INDIA)

Jaklin Oheb plays a Daf (traditional Persian musical instrument) while teaching Iranian Jewish children the Hebrew language at the Yalda 1 Jewish Kindergarten in Tehran November 28, 2006. Jews have lived in Persia for nearly 3,000 years. Today, Iran is home to about 11,000 Jews, the largest Jewish population in the Middle East outside Israel. The creation of the state of Israel in 1948 and Iran?s Islamic revolution led to increased Jewish emigration from Iran. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, founder of the Islamic Republic, recognized Jews as a religious minority that should be protected and gave Jews a guaranteed seat in Parliament.
