This is the first immersive language retreat where you get to travel with a language and culture enthusiast just like you plus a professional Portuguese teacher! Learn Portuguese whilst firsthand experiencing the beautiful country of Brazil by cultural immersion. Live and taste the Brazilian way of life for a 10 days by enjoying Portuguese language and one-on-one/group classes with me and a native Brazilian Portuguese teacher. This will be a cultural experience like no other trip before, guaranteed!
The course is intended for all Portuguese language and Brazilian culture lovers who want to not only get the gist of the Portuguese language but also immerse themselves in the culture while studying. If you are a beginner in Portuguese or at intermediate level and you want to advance, you are going to learn a full Portuguese-entry-level course that will leave you with great conversational language skills that are absolutely essential to get by and get to know the real Brazil!
If you haven’t done a language trip before, this is the time to savour the benefits of learning while you dive into the cultural aspects of a society. I learnt Portuguese by immersing myself into the culture and ultimately travel and live in Brazil for 4 months in order to improve my skills the best way possible. So, I want to help and encourage those who might be a bit hesitant to travel alone to bravely take a step forward. Ultimately it will be one of the best things you’ll ever experience (I’m speaking out of experience) and that is why I am more than happy to accompany you on your language learning journey
Rio de Janeiro is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the most popular travel destination in Brazil. But we want to show you that Brazil has a lot more to offer than Rio. One good reason to make you discover amazing towns near Rio!
During the first days we will take our time to explore different sites and activities throughout Rio de Janeiro. Each morning you will have Portuguese lessons from 9am-12am, right after a typical Brazilian breakfast. After classes you’ll have time for lunch, either at home or in one of the many restaurants and explore the city, its breathtaking nature and amazing beaches. In the afternoon there will be an activity from the ones mentioned below. Some activities will take a day (day trip to beach town Arraial do Cabo) so they’ll be shifted unto the weekend. Of course, we will have time to participate in one of Rio’s famous Carnival street ‘blocos’ and top the festivities with a visit to the famous Sambadrome for the world’s biggest
The second half of our immersion trip will be spent in the beautiful beach town of Búzios. This is the “Saint-Tropez” of Brazil, where a lot of Brazilians from Rio state spend their summer vacation. Around Búzios there is the, just as beautiful, town of Arraial do Cabo, which is called the Carribeans of Brazil for its cristal clear turquoise waters, and Cabo Frío. There will also be time to explore those popular summer destinations.
