Study Portuguese in The Home of Your Own Private Teacher in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is a big, beautiful, and undeniably sexy city. This vibrant cultural capital is the perfect place to learn the passionate Portuguese language. Rio has long been a popular vacation destination, but recently it’s gotten even more attention thanks to the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics.

This dynamic, growing city is a cosmopolitan place that captures the vital, rambunctious, and carefree Brazilian spirit. Rio has dozens of beautiful beaches, including the Copacabana. As you walk along the sunny, sandy, Atlantic coast, you’ll surely find plenty of vendors with cold drinks and food, little shops selling beer and renting out chairs and umbrellas, and groups of people tanning, swimming, and playing sports! When you’re not enjoying the beaches, then you can visit some of Rio’s amazing sites, including the monumental statue of Christ the Redeemer. This amazing piece of art overlooks the city and has been named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Rio is infamous for its wild nightlife and it’s the birthplace of Brazil’s most iconic musical styles: samba, choro, and bossa nova. You can enjoy live performances of this music throughout the year but the most sensational way to experience them is during Carnival! Rio is also an ideal destination for nature lovers since it has one of the largest urban forests in the world.

The Live & Learn program offers you a unique and truly immersive way to experience this spirited city. Your host family will be able to recommend particular places of interest as they get to know you personally through your private, professional Portuguese lessons. You’ll also learn that much more quickly and effectively in a place where you can consistently apply your language skills as you learn them. Rio is a lively and welcoming city that’s sure to give you plenty of fun and exciting opportunities to practice and improve your Portuguese!
