Living with a host family is an unforgettable experience and of uttermost importance for you to improve your Portuguese quickly.
It will give you the unique chance to participate in the day-to-day life and activities of a Brazilian family, thus providing you plenty of opportunities to practice what you learn in your lessons.
At the same time, you’ll be experiencing a rich cultural environment, which will help you a great deal to understand what Brazilian people are about and to integrate yourself in this new, exciting country.
We strongly recommend that students consider living with a family, since it will greatly assist you in the learning of Brazilian Portuguese.
* Typically home stays are as comfortable as hotels. They are also within walking distance to the school and very private. Students get their own key and there’s no curfew.
* A ‘host family’ can be a married couple, with or without children. If a student is unhappy in a host family, they will be moved, without question. Please note that accommodation is normally available from the Sunday before a course starts until the Saturday after it finishes.
