Student opinions about It's Cool, Sao Paulo

Liked
I loved how friendly everyone there is and also that some teachers show you little restaurants near the school where you can eat together.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss If you are a beginner and don`t understand a word of Potuguese, ask for a teacher who speaks English because it`s really difficult to learn from a teacher who only speaks Portuguese.
