What our students said about Salvador


Rating: 2/5

Like many cities in Brazil, Salvador is also characterised by poverty and crime. Police and military are present everywhere for protection and you are instructed to leave valuables at home and, if possible, not to show your mobile phone and camera. There is no real holiday feeling and it doesn't help that the people are very open and friendly. Since the crime rate in Rio or São Paulo is also high or even worse, we had no alternative but to book a Portuguese course in Salvador.


Rating: 5/5

Barra is a beautiful neighbourhood in Salvador and leaves you in no doubt about what to do.

Instituto Cultural Idioma

Great, experienced teachers, who respond to their students individually and pay attention to their progress. They also manage this in the group. The lessons are very lively. I can definitely recommend the school. I have learned a lot here and can use my new knowledge in everyday life. Muito obrigada.

Information about Salvador

Why Salvador? The city has an energy and unadorned beauty that very few cities can match. Its colourful centre is a living museum of 17th- and 18th-century architecture and gold-laden churches and the Pelourinho neighbourhood is a historic heart, with cobblestone alleys, large squares, colourful buildings and brilliant baroque churches. Wild festivals happen almost on the daily, with drum corps pounding out rhythms that are impossible not to move to. Elsewhere in town, a different spirit flows, there’s nowhere else in the world where the culture of those brought as slaves from Africa has been preserved so well as it has been here– from music and religion to food, dance and martial-arts traditions. And to top all of this, a gorgeous coastline lies right outside the city. Come and see its magnificence for yourself.
