Language Courses

The school provides a wide range of English and Portuguese courses, from beginners level to Cambridge examinations.

Our courses focus on improving the students’ confidence to speak the language. The classes are communicative with integrated skills: reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar and vocabulary.

We have individual and group courses. All group classes have a maximum of 8 students, allowing greater teacher attention and interaction. We offer part-time and full-time courses with flexible start dates. Courses are open to students aged 4 and over.

Of course, socialising or lying in a hammock on one of the many beautiful beaches is free.

We can recommend a variety of accommodation options to suit all budgets, including high-end options for those looking for luxury – after all you are on vacation! We do our best to tailor make a vacation based on your specific needs and wishes.

For adults, families and groups

We can recommend quality affordable accommodation within walking distance of all the amenities and our language school. Once we know how you want to spend your time in Itacare, we can design a package for you. For example, if you want to surf and learn Portuguese, then we arrange your language lessons around the best surf times, so you don’t miss any good waves!

For teenagers and young adults

We offer a language, activity and cultural program. A host family can be arranged. The student is immersed into Bahian/ Brazilian life. Bahian people have a well-known tradition of warmth and hospitality. Student welfare is our main concern, so we choose our host families very carefully to ensure you are comfortable. Students have a private room in a family home and become members of the family for the duration of their stay and fit into normal family life, socialising and eating with the family. The duration of this course is normally two weeks, however, as with any of our courses we can adjust this to meet the specific needs of the student.
