Portuguese Immersion Courses

Private 4 course - 20 lessons per week

Portuguese Immersion course - 40 lessons per week

Immersion is the most intensive and effective course we offer. It consists of eight hours per day of private lessons, which includes lunch with your teacher. For years, Immersion has been our most popular program with executives and professionals who want to learn a lot in a short period of time. With an Immersion Course, you can super charge your language training, learning in weeks what would normally take a year or more.

Here's a sample of a typical day of immersion program:

9:30 - 11:00: A quick review of what you learned the previous day and then role-play a real-life situation in the language you are learning, based on a scene from one of the School's in-class video laserdiscs.

11:00 - 12:30: Practice new vocabulary and verb tenses through conversation and entertaining exercises.

12:30 - 14:00: Time for lunch at a nearby restaurant with your instructor, all in the foreign language.

14:00 - 15:30: No, it's not time for a nap! Grab a cup of coffee and let's see a segment in DVD/video laserdisc format. Learn new vocabulary and discuss the cultural differences between your countries, which are depicted in the film.

15:30 - 17:00: A review of new material learned this morning, and from yesterday's classes. As an option you may elect to take a short excursion with your teacher to practice what you have been learning, but in real life situations.

Student's Opinion:

""Now that I'm back from Brazil, I would like to share with you my thoughts about the one-week Portuguese language course I took in Rio de Janeiro . First of I all, I'm very satisfied with the level of the course and with the great improvement in active (spoken) Portuguese which I achieved. The demanding attitude of most teachers and the fact that many sessions consisted of one-to-one conversations certainly contributed to my progress.

The course helped me tremendously; in the week after the course I was able to conduct many work-related conversations in the South of Brazil in Portuguese; I even conceded TV interviews (live!) in the language, on a show called 'Bom Da', i.e. Good Morning, which was broadcast at 6.30 a.m. Good Break of Dawn, I would call it. Anyway, those conversations and interviews would not have been possible without the course. Thank you!"
