    Insider tips about what future students should not miss: School-sponsored activities in the afternoon, by the time the note is not held at all. When I went, so much.
    Other comments: And friendly environment, recommended for those who want to learn Portuguese for a reasonable price. Sao Paulo is a very large cities, cars and more people, and not very quiet. If you do not like big cities, might want to try to consider how the school Maceio schools.
    The flexibility of the programms duration. The teachers were always willing to help.
