For anyone interested in learning Portugese, Brazil is an obvious choice. The charm of its inhabitants, combined with the culture, size and beauty of the country, make Brazil one of the most fascinating language travel destinations in Latin America. Maceió, capital of the Alagoas state, has a warm sunny, year-round climate and miles of beaches and lagoons, washed by the clear warm waters of the Atlantic.
Our school is located in the centre of Maceió, just a short walk from the beach. Students attending Portuguese courses at our school can choose to stay in carefully selected Brazilian host families, in Pousadas (inexpensive hotels) or in hotels. All accommodation, including the host families, is within easy walking distance of the school and the beach.
The Portuguese language courses (20 or 30 lessons/week) have a maximum of just 5 students per class and are held mostly in the mornings. In addition to the Portuguese language program, our school also offers a variety of extra courses, such as Brazilian Cooking and Brazilian Dance.
Our school in Maceió also provides an extensive cultural programme, including regular excursions to places of cultural, historic and ecological interest, such as the Murici Forest, the S. Francisco River, the historic city of Penedo and other locations. Maceió is also an ideal base from which to explore other parts of Brazil and our school helps students organise excursions to Sao Paolo, Rio de Janeiro and to the Amazon Rain Forest.
