Learn Portuguese in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil!

With white sandy beaches in one direction, lush green mountains in another, and the famous Christ Redeemer statue perched above it all, Rio de Janeiro is one ofthe most spectacular cities in the world. And that's just the view! Add the friendliness of the locals, the laid-back atmosphere, and the sultry tropical climate, and you'll soon see why they call Rio "A Cidade Maravilhosa" (the Marvelous City).

Rio natives, or "Cariocas," are famous for their hospitality, openness, and warmth. In their spare time, they love going to the beach and that is where you'll find them whenever it is not raining. Due to the country's vast mix of origins, Brazilians like all sorts of music and nightlife, but are particularly fond of the local scene. They are also known for dancing and partying until late at night, or early morning, as the case may be!

Although renowned for its festive atmosphere, especially during the annual "Carnaval" festivities, Rio de Janeiro is the headquarters to some of Brazil's largest national and multinational companies. As the former national capital, Rio still holds onto the aura of that glorious era. It is a cosmopolitan city with a wide variety of restaurants, tourist attractions, historic sites and nightlife options. Rio's relaxed atmosphere, beautiful beaches, and friendly residents make learning Portuguese in this city an unforgettable experience.
