Learn Portuguese in São Paulo – the largest Portuguese-speaking city in the world! São Paulo is home to more than 17 million people, with immigrants from all over the world making the city a rich tapestry of different cultures. In amongst the city’s sea of skyscrapers hide Japanese markets, Middle Eastern restaurants, colonial churches and everything in between!
This is a metropolis where the cuisine is unimaginably varied, the nightlife non-stop and the cultural scene thriving. The Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) and the Theatro Municipal are two of the city’s finest cultural attractions and are well worth a visit. A Portuguese course in São Paulo will present you with an untold number of things to see and do – the only question is where to start!
Your base in São Paulo will be the upscale neighbourhood of Jardins, just outside the very heart of the city. After your Portuguese lessons, you can explore the countless shops, cafés and bars around you, or unwind in nearby Ibirapuera Park. The school itself has spacious classrooms, wireless Internet access, a student lounge and a computer room with a free Internet connection.
The most popular learning program at our São Paulo school is the Standard course, which offers 20 Portuguese lessons each week, all in same-level groups. For a faster pace of learning, choose the Intensive course of 30 classes a week, also in groups. The Standard course gives you plenty of free time to explore São Paulo and Brazil, whilst the Intensive course is ideal if you want to learn lots of Portuguese in a limited period of time.
Private Portuguese Lessons are the quickest way to develop your knowledge of the language. They allow our school’s highly qualified, experienced teachers to devote all of their time to improving your Portuguese, focusing on areas of the language you have the most trouble with.
A very effective way to learn the language is to perform Volunteer Work in Brazil, which our school can organise for you. Practice your Portuguese with native speakers, get to know local people and give something back to the community!
