    When I am living in another country it is fundamental do me to be able to interact with the local community. Being able to speak Portuguese

    Has allowed me to really start understanding the culture, talk to our clients and seize all the opportunities available to make the most of my experience here in Brazil.

    I´ve been here in Sao Paulo for two years now and can honestly say that I love Brazil! The extraordinary warmth of the people, the extreme beauty of the varied landscapes and of course the tropical weather make me want to live here forever!

    Since my classes started three months ago, I can notice that I’ve learned a lot in my Portuguese for Foreigners class. I Feel like I’m improving little by little every time. The classes help me in my daily life thanks to the method of teaching and due to a lot of patience from Claudia, my teacher.
