Our goal is to teach Brazilian Portuguese using an active and situational method. Our course is recommended for students over 13 years old who need to learn the language used both in daily activities and in more formal situations, while also practicing the four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking.

In addition to the study of grammatical structures and vocabulary, students will be able to get in touch with the cultural, geographical and historical aspects that are fundamental for a more complete exposure to the environment in which Brazilian Portuguese is spoken.
