Caminhos Language Centre Reviews

Amazing school, awesome location, fun teachers

I had a 5 star experience at Caminhos. The location couldn’t be better - Ipanema, safe place, some blocks away from the beach. The teachers are fun and extremely competent. The school is constantly organizing social activities to integrate the students. The projects the school supports to help children in need were important for me to choose this school. An amazing cultural experience in one of the most beautiful cities in the world that I can only recommend.

Very friendly staff and teachers! They helped with planning a home stay for us in Rio with an amazing Brazilian lady who gave us the true Brazilian experience. They led many fun activities that we joined in on before and after our classes. Also helped us with planning the rest of our time in Brazil which was very helpful. Overall great experience and would definitely recommend!!

Best School in Rio

Caminhos is, by far, the best school in Rio! The academic program is excellent and every day they have different paid and free activities... even on the weekends! Nathalia Mazzini was my teacher and she is one of the best! I totally recommend this school!

Great introduction to Portuguese and Social environment

I took classes at Caminhos Language centre when I first arrived in Rio and they really helped me to get an understanding of Portuguese. The school is in a great location near Ipanema beach and also organizes lots of social activities for students :)
