The teachers are very well qualified.
The name of the school is Frida Spanish School. Very poorly organized, with no accurate information and no staff speaking Portuguese. It seems like a garage background school, the organization does not exist, information is not secure, lack preparation to deal with Brazilian students, taking the language into consideration.
