Magnificent, Marvelous, Maceio!
Maceio really is something else! It has everything -- from a tropical climate with palm trees, lagoons, and clear blue ocean water, to delicious cuisine, friendly and welcoming locals, and endless cultural activities to enjoy, such as dancing the samba or forró while reveling in the city’s exciting nightlife. It is a simply amazing place to learn Portuguese!
And there’s no shortage of things to do once the morning lessons are over. The local food is fantastic – one of the most popular dishes from the area is “sururu”. Which is mussels cooked in a yummy coconut sauce. And somehow, it manages to taste even better when you have it at one of the beachside restaurants with awesome views! If you like, you can also visit a little village nearby called Massaguiera... But make sure you work up an appetite before you go – the village is known by everyone for its fresh seafood served in absolutely massive portions!... and it’s true! Of course if you don’t like seafood too much, Maceio has plenty of restaurants of it’s own... so eat your heart out... Just be prepared to come home from Maceio just tiny bit heavier than when you arrived!
The course staff are very friendly and helpful. The whole learning experience was pleasurable.
The teachers were excellent and my host family were very friendly.
At first I was worried about being in a foreign country alone but the staff and the students at the school only made me feel at home. If I iever had any problems, I would just ask and they would do whatever they could to help.
The teachers very nice, with great atmosphere in the school. My accommodation was very comfortable and well located.
The course was very good and I learnt a lot about Portuguese verbs in spite of the fact that I only attended the school for one week!
