The course was very interesting and Milene, our teacher, was very professional and a lovely person. My host-family was very friendly, the room was simple but clean and nice arranged.

The course was fantastic. Pitched at just the right level and with the right number of students. The work was challenging but at the same time relaxed. The teachers were excellent and very professional. From the first day I enrolled in the school in Salvador, everything was fine. All the other students were really nice and I made a lot of new friends. The staff at the school were always very friendly and helpful. 2 weeks just flew by and my Portuguese did improve!

The whole experience was fantastic, I'm already considering another language holiday somewhere else!

The course was interesting but a bit too intensive. Next time I would only take lessons in the morning. My host family was very friendly and nice. I had the best time.

The course was good. We stayed there for only a week. I was placed in an advanced level and the teacher was dynamic and engaging.

Accommodation
We went to a B & B we saw in Airbnb which was near the school. It was great.

Extra
My wife was placed in a beginners level, and since no other student was there for that level, she got private classes. That seemed great; however, the [school's] policy is that if you take private classes you only get 1,5 hours of class. Since we had signed for 3 hour classes my wife felt cheated of half her class time in Salvador.

Overall the course was useful and inspired me to peruse more Portuguese classes in the future. Basic grammar training was very good.

The course was very interesting and well organized. All of the teachers were nice and professional but also very friendly at the same time, they were able to create a nice atmosphere during our classes. I especially appreciated the fact that the number of students per class was limited to nine. I liked my accomodation, it was nice and the family I lived with was openminded, kind and fiendly.

The course was well structured and presented, with a large number of instructors which gave them the flexibility to group students of similar levels. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and hope to return again in the future.

My Portuguese course in Salvador de Bahia was very good. The integration was very good and we learned a lot in two weeks. The host family I stay was very good to me, they treated me like family. I was very happy with the trip, because I could make new friends from other countries far from mine, I recommend it! Salvador de Bahia is a beautiful city, its history is ancient and the sea is amazing!
