I was in Rio for 3 weeks and during my second week I googled "portuguese course in Rio", after sending a few emails to different schools, the Carioca Languages staff replied right away offering me the "Curso para hispano falante" (course for spanish speakers) which turned out to be perfect for me, fast paced and with a great teacher (Pedro!). I can't wait to go back to Rio and complete the other levels :) Thanks!

Viviane is an excellent portugues teacher. She manages her own school in a very serious way, coordinating other professors, activities, programs. Her lessons are always dinamic, the atmosphere in the school is very unformal. I highly recomend this school in Rio, if you really want to learn portugues and a little bit of Rio outside the common standards.

I had two different teachers in Level 1 and Level 2 and I am very content with the progress I made with the intensive courses. Both teachers were ambitious and motivated, could explain the portuguese language extremly well and noticeably enjoyed to teach the Brazilian language and culture. After the course they remained as friends and we stayed in contact.
With the small groups and the good mixture of grammar, vocabulary, conversation & media I made better progress than ever imagined in just two months of learning.

Carioca Languages had a very bad impact on my trip to Rio. I felt like I was trapped everyday at 9am and couldn't leave Sona Zul because it was 5 days a week for 4 weeks. Worst yet: we didn't cover much material during the 4 weeks because the owner of the school wouldn't allow our class to progress at the pace we were at. She wanted us to only cover the small material in the book so we would have to pay her more for the next level. I would have asked for my money back after two weeks but I was too scared of the owner yelling at me. It was felt by all the students that she was very kind on only two days: first and last day of classes.

The unit books (black and white photo copies) were poorly translated and confusing.

If youre desperate, I would recommend their professors for private lessons but NOT for the intensive courses. But you can probably find cheaper lessons as well. Good luck/ sorte!!
