Learn Portuguese in Brazil, the largest Portuguese – speaking country in the world! A veritable melting pot of European, African and indigenous influences, Brazilian culture is unique and famed for vibrancy. Samba and Carnival are two words that are synonymous with Brazil and it is this zest for life that attracts so many to Brazil! The natural beauty of the country, which is the largest in South America, is also renowned and varies from stunning white, sandy beaches to the spectacular Amazon Rainforest. This is truly a magical location in which to learn Portuguese!
Our Portuguese schools in Brazil are located in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Salvador Da Bahia. Nicknamed the cidade maravilhosa (marvellous city), Rio de Janeiro really is truly dazzling. Stretching along the spectacular coast, with the Christ the Redeemer statue keeping watch from atop Corcovado Mountain is, perhaps, one of the most recognisable cityscapes in the world.
The cultural capital of Brazil, Sao Paulo in South-eastern Brazil is the largest city. Sao Paulo is certainly the location for you if you wish to learn more about Brazilian national identity and culture, and is the home of a wealth of museums, theatres and art galleries. Sao Paulo also hosts many international events, such as the Brazilian Formula 1 Grand Prix and its own Fashion Week!
If you wish to take a step back in time and discover Brazil’s colonial history, then Salvador Da Bahia is the location for you! This city offers some wonderful examples of both historic architecture (some dating back as far as 17th Century) and more modern buildings. Famous as the home of capoeira, Salvador Da Bahia is a city where African and European influences really have combined to create a unique culture.
