Ana: "I would appreciate it if the methodology of teaching would concentrate more on practicing what we learned instead of teaching us new grammar and lots of new vocabulary almost everyday. However, all teachers were very kind, patient and nice. I also appreciate very much that they let me attend 4 hours per day."

Christoph: "A small school with a nice staff. I found that the courses were given a bit quickly for a beginner. The course material could be a little more careful, it is often double-sided photocopies, but where the back was in the opposite direction to the front. I would have preferred to buy the course book. But overall I feel like I have made some progress because as of the second week I started to catch words in the phonetic 'soup' of Portuguese, for example in the subway or in the street. It would be nice to have a room available for reading, doing homework, etc. All in all a very good stay. Thank you to my teachers Angela, Tereza and Rita."

Christoph: "No meal was provided for in the contract, but my hostess invited me several times for an evening meal, but you have to be vegan. I'm not, but I like to try and it was good. On the other hand, you must not be allergic to cats. She has six and still has four other animals. Occasionally she also keeps dogs for people. All this in perfect order and a very welcoming interior."
