Studying at Carioca language school was a great experience. They were very flexible and accommodating with schedule, hours etc. The teacher, who was assigned to me is professional, kind and also very flexible in her teaching methods. I am a teacher myself and I would certainly recommend them to learners of Portuguese!

Most of the people at the school are really nice, but the school seems to care more about giving students a good time than about helping them to learn Portuguese. The teachers contradict each other and seem to have very little methodology, you get no training material whatsoever (other than some powerpoint slides), you don't get to do many exercises... More

I took private classes with Rodrigo, one of the teachers at Carioca Languages. This school and Rodrigo in particular were beyond excellent for the following reasons: 1. Rodrigo is a native speaker but more importantly, has also studied Portuguese in depth at one of the top local universities. His knowledge of the language is deep and broad. You will learn... More

I have been doing thos course for a month and a half so far. I really enjoy the pace we learn portuguese, the teachers are good and speak only portuguese, which forces you to try to communicate. This course is no joke, you have to study, you have to motivated to learn. If you are expecting miracles and that you... More

I must say I am very impressed and satisfied with the courses this school provides. The material is genius, it provokes thought and includes relevant topics. It teaches more than just a language but it reaches out for cultural references and make it easier for us foreigners to understand the locals and their culture better. And at a very fair... More

I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. The course (intermediate) concentrated on discussion rather than writing and I found it very useful for me. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff is really nice. Highly recommended.

I did comparison between three different courses, before i choose Carioca Languages, so I can say I really recommend it 100%. The school is very well organized, the place has a great location close to bus stop and Metro and even Copacabana beach.

I took the Advanced group course here and also some private lessons in September 2014. It's an excellent school. There were just 2 other students in my group course, which allowed for intensive, personalized learning, and the teacher did a good job of responding to each student's particular needs. The beginner class that was running during the same time in... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
