Portuguese is not an easy language especially for people who don’t speak Latin-based languages. So make sure you choose a good school. Caminhos is definitely one of them - great teaches, who use pragmatic interactive way, great group activities including sports, cultural, and tourist trips. Private classes work best for us, but there are also different group options.

I have attended Caminhos for 6 weeks, studying Portuguese. The school has excellent teachers and lesson plans. In addition, they offer many extra activities to do after class. Most of these activities are free or very inexpensive.

I attended Caminhos language school for 3 weeks in January. It was great. My teacher's Rubia and Pablo were amazing. They had great lessons and were very good at teaching Portuguese. I loved the activities the school offered. A great way to meet people and practice the language. Davi the tour guide and overall school "go to guy" was super friendly and fun to be with. A great way to immerse yourself in the culture and language.
