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.
Portuguese for Travellers
PORTUGUESE FOR TRAVELLERS
This course is designed for visitors who want to learn/improve Portuguese while enjoying their holiday. It includes tips on how to get by in Brazil as a traveller and how to make the most out of your time in Itacaré. The course is tailored to the student’s needs and also teaches the student about the culture of the country.
Portuguese for Kids
PORTUGUESE FOR NON BRAZILIAN KIDS (FROM 6 YEARS OLD)
As part of this course, kids are challenged to learn and experience Portuguese in a very playful way. Our approach is learning through movement, music, games, puppetry, drama, storytelling, crafts, painting and having fun.
Cambridge Exam Preparation
The Cambridge exams are recognised worldwide. They are required for applications to universities in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, as well as other native English speaking countries. The Cambridge course greatly assists with getting employed in the tourism industry and in international business.

Our curriculum focuses on student-centred learning. Our teachers use methodologies such as total physical response methodology (TPR), Communicative Language Teaching (CLT), Task-Based Learning (TBL), and Co-operative Language Learning (CLL).
Progress exams are done twice a year for the group students to test fluency, vocabulary and pronunciation. The school aims to see students improving at a rate of one level per year, although learners may differ in this. For example it may take one student 4 weeks, another student 8 weeks to improve.
