Our conversation-based method is based on an intercultural approach. We want you to speak from lessone one.

Group classes follow a program divided into 10 levels, throughout which students learn to understand, express themselves and converse in Portuguese. 


Group classes for Spanish speakers take advantage of the many similarities between the two languages, resulting in a total of 5 levels. If you speak Spanish, either as a native speaker or as a second language, we strongly recommend taking these classes.

Private classes are tailored based on the student’s goals and strengths.

"Due to the teaching style & techniques of Brazil in Chicago, I became a Brazil-o-phile before even landing in Brazil! I was equipped not only with a strong set of communication skills, but a unique insight into Brazilian culture, local girias (Brazilian sayings), practical vocabulary, music, politics, and other current issues."
