Culture and Language

The idea of considering the cultural aspects of our people, as a starting point for the teaching of Brazilian Portuguese, motivates us to offer meaningful learning. You can not know and understand a new language if you do not know its history, learning through art, play, dance, our culture.

Facilities and location

Our institute is located in one of the most traditional neighborhoods of Salvador, close to the calmest, most beautiful beaches of the city: the Porto da Barra and Farol da Barra. The inhabitants of Barra enjoy a walkable neighborhood with all the daily necessities. Shopping centers, supermarkets, drug stores, restaurants, laundromats and other services are within easy reach. The school is easily accessible from any point in the city. It is located in a colonial-style house, occupying two floors, and has a patio and a large garden.  The house “floats” in the greenery of the trees looking out over the street. Our classrooms are spacious, well-equipped and air conditioned, with DVD players, televisions, and computers. We also have projectors that are used during classes and mini-movie sessions that we plan for our students.
