BRAZIL: Portuguese Language Courses the Island of Floranopolis

Company : Travellers Worldwide
Location : Florianopolis Island
Duration: 1 week to 3 months
Approx Costs: 750 to 3000+ £ Pound (UK)

Learn Brazilian Portuguese on the stunning island of Florianopolis in the south of Brazil. Private lessons are arranged for you, from Beginner to Advanced. Something for everyone!

A little background to the language:
Portuguese is the sixth most spoken language worldwide, with 215 million native speakers, mostly in Portugal and Brazil, but also in several African countries. Understanding Portuguese has a knock-on effect when starting to learn any other Romance language like Spanish, Italian, French and Romanian. Knowledge of one makes it much easier to pick up any of the others, since they all evolved from Latin and still share grammar and syntax, and have lots of similar vocabulary. So if you have some knowledge of any of the Latin languages, you may find that you pick up Portuguese easily!

Our course is designed that you take two hours of classes daily, Monday to Friday. (If you'd like to add more hours of lessons to your schedule, this can be arranged for an extra lesson fee.)

Depending on your location and schedule, the lessons will either be arranged at your accommodation or at the teachers' studio. The experienced and dedicated teachers are incredibly friendly and will go out of their way to ensure that you have an enjoyable experience learning Portuguese in Brazil.

Most of the time your lessons will be during the day on Monday to Friday, but it is possible that occasionally your lesson times will vary slightly. You will receive individual tuition and lessons are prepared especially for you depending upon your preferences.

The lessons will be planned according to your interest and level of knowledge and will include grammar, practice listening and conversation. You'll have private lessons giving you individual attention for a full immersion into the language, making your learning process a lot faster.

Teachers try, where possible, to hold classes predominantly in Portuguese, but most teachers are fluent English speakers and will assist you in English if or when you get stuck. The fact that the classes are held in Portuguese helps to immerse you in the language and encourages you to converse and gain confidence in speaking Portuguese.

When you're living, working, socializing and breathing a new language, you learn fast – and the whole process is exciting, memorable and a lot of fun, especially in Brazil! There are many benefits to learning a foreign language abroad. You can interact with the local people and understand and appreciate the greater subtleties of a culture, such as the local literature, music, art, and folklore.

... And it's an excellent addition to your CV that might give you an advantage over your competitors in a tough job market!


You'll stay at one of our selected guest houses in the Santa Monica area of ‘Floripa’. The guest house is run by 3 ladies from the same family and you will be warmly welcomed Graziela, her mother and her little daughter! There are also 2 lovely cats who live in the house.

Internet access: The guest house provides free internet. There’s also a lounge with comfy sofas and a lovely balcony with hammocks in which to chill out!

You'll stay in a room with up to 3 other people; the rooms are basic but you will have a comfortable bed, there is a wardrobe and fans are provided.

The house is located in a central area of Florianopolis, near the universities, so the area around it is always busy with local people coming and going. It is just a 7 minute walk to one of the biggest shopping malls in the city and also close to supermarkets, pharmacies, shops, restaurants - a great place to be situated! At the weekends, the pubs and restaurants around are always crowded with locals who like to go out to relax and have a drink with friends. From this accommodation it is easy to get to other parts of the island using the public bus system.

FOOD: Food is not provided on this project. However there are ample supermarkets nearby where you can stock up on provisions and you are welcome to cook in the accommodation.
