We are small international team and have the goal to promote intercultural exchange in Brazil. Together with our language school and beachlodge we are helping local NGOs by arranging international interns and volunteers.
We are doing everything possible to make the experience of our guests extraordinary. You will live here together with natives, work on interesting projects at local NGOs, develop contacts with colleagues and in that way learn the Brazilian culture deeper than any tourist.
Portuguese teacher Kátia is humorous and lively person. She loves other languages and cultures so she will surprise you greeting you in your own language. Very quickly you will forget that she is a teacher – she will just become your friend with whom you will go out and learn Portuguese already “on the field”.
Deda and Mayara are our cooks and will provide you with wonderful local food. Marсus is the gardener and the “man-for-all”. They work hard to make your stay in Brazil as comfortable as possible. All of them are locals and speak only Portuguese. And if you want to practice they will be happy to have some “small talk” with you.
Originally from Russia, but Brazilian in her heart Svetlana is the administrative manager of the school. She came to Brazil aiming to get to know the roots of Capoeira (Brazilian martial art) and to learn Portuguese. Since then Brazil never let her go back.
Márcia is fan of Portuguese language. She also teaches Portuguese at secondary school, and knows all the peculiarities and regularities of the language. She will resolve all your most difficult doubts about grammar.
Rosana has very special caring and motivating teaching style. Her lessons are almost therapy, your self esteem and motivation go high, and so your learning abilities too. She is also specialist in Portuguese lessons “on the field” – what about having a lesson on the beach or city park?
