Learn a new language in one of the world’s most colorful cultures.
Brazil is about football (soccer), music (like samba, funk, and favela beats), tempting dishes (rice and beans with everything), fresh fruit (mango, banana, papaya … take your pick!), and a happy, laid-back lifestyle. As a high school student, it’s also about daily classes and after-school interaction. Walk in the shoes of a local teen, and see your Portuguese language proficiency grow by leaps and bounds. For your first three weeks in Brazil, you’ll take an intensive Portuguese language course to get you speaking basic Portuguese and ready for daily high school classes. Then, five days a week you’ll take classes — taught solely in Portuguese — at a private high school. Along with Portuguese literature, science, math, history, art, and philosophy, you’ll also spend two hours per week in a Portuguese language “booster” course.
