Most of the people at the school are really nice, but the school seems to care more about giving students a good time than about helping them to learn Portuguese. The teachers contradict each other and seem to have very little methodology, you get no...More

I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. The course (intermediate) concentrated on discussion rather than writing and I found it very useful for me. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff is really nice. Highly recommended.
