Learn Portuguese in Brazil

Learn Portuguese in Rio de Janeiro, once the capital of Brazil, and one of the most dynamic cities in the world, squeezed between the sandy coastline and the mountains. Learn Portuguese in Brazil and explore the city's spectacular beaches, museums, galleries, Corcovado, and Sugar Loaf but the city also has a huge problem with slum areas, or Favelas, which litter the hillsides.

Or learn Portuguese in Salvador da Bahia. Located on the Northeast coast of Brazil, this historic colonial city was founded in 1549 and was one of the main gateways for the slave trade. Bahia is considered Brazil's heartland, not only because Brazil was discovered there, but because its people are a fusion of diverse cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds. Therefore Salvador da Bahia might be the most interesting place to learn Portuguese in Brazil!

About Brazil

The Federative Republic of Brazil is South America’s largest country, home to the marvel that is the Amazon Rainforest and the equally fascinating city of São Paulo. The country has many islands, including those of the Fernando de Noronha, which have some truly spectacular beaches. Brazil also offers mountains, scrublands and plains, and a similarly diverse range of climates.

Brazil’s culture has been influenced by those of several other countries, particularly Portugal. The country has produced many notable works in the areas of literature, art and – more recently – cinema. Brazil’s music, too, is enjoyed around the world. If you decide to visit the country, why not try its Beijinho, or “little kiss” – a sweet usually consumed at birthday celebrations – or Feijoada - a bean and meat stew thought of as Brazil’s national dish? Learn Portuguese in Brazil and try out the many different traditional dishes!
