Enjoy a TEFL language course in Brazil at our language school in the city of Rio
Rio, once the capital of Brazil, is one of the most dynamic cities in the world. A visit to the city of Rio de Janeiro entails a day on the beach - virtually as a statutory requirement. Life for the Cariocas (citizens of Rio) revolves around the vast expanse of sandy coastline with which the city has been blessed.
Situated on the southeast coast of Brazil, the cidade marvilhosa “marvellous city” is squeezed between the ocean and the mountains. Within this realm live around ten million people in varying degrees of wealth or poverty. The beautiful areas frequented by the wealthy stand in stark contrast and unnerving proximity to the slum areas, or Favelas, which litter the hillsides.
Rio's citizens are characterized with a passion and enthusiasm for life and they know how to party as best demonstrated at the annual Carnaval. The beach is not merely a place to absorb the sun's rays. It is an important venue for sports, socializing and even business dealings.
It is a people-watcher's paradise. Clothing is minimal; bodies bronzed and beautiful and the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches are a Mecca for Brazilians and tourists alike.
The school has a long history in Brazil, with over 20 years of experience in the country. Our center in Rio combines old and new, offering fully modern facilities in a historic downtown building.
One of the school’s primary advantages is location, being close to many bus stops, only two blocks from the subway, and within walking distance of dozens of local attractions. The completely renovated center includes nine classrooms with audiovisual equipment, central air conditioning, phone and fax services, and access to e-mail and the Internet.
