Free Activities in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Every Monday afternoon we organise an orientation session for new students, during which we provide useful information about Rio de Janeiro, the school and Ipanema.
Every Monday evening we organise a free game of volleyball on Ipanema beach! All skill levels are welcome. This is an opportunity for you to meet other Portuguese students and make friends while staying in Brazil.
Every Tuesday afternoon we organise a ‘bate-papo’ session for students who like to practise their developing Portuguese conversation skills in a fun way. A Portuguese teacher will use topics, music and games to help stimulate the conversation, better enabling students to talk and think in Portuguese.
Every Tuesday evening we show a Brazilian movie with Portuguese subtitles at the school (we have a projector and a sound system). Great for deepening your understanding of Brazilian culture and improving your Portuguese. Popcorn is provided!
Every Wednesday afternoon we organise a support hour hosted by one of our Portuguese teachers for students who have questions related to the classes they are attending.
On Wednesday evenings we offer Brazil’s famous Samba classes with Bruno. Bruno is our fantastic professional samba teacher from Lapa! We guarantee that Bruno will get your hips moving and shaking.
On Friday afternoons we run our popular city tour in Rio de Janeiro, led by our tour guide, Davi. We run 16 different tours, ranging from beautiful hikes in the mountains with incredible views of Rio, to trips around historical parts of the city, bicycle tours and visits to special markets.
Every six weeks in front of the school we hold our ‘Caipi-Sexta’ event: a friendly welcome party where our new students are welcomed with a free caipirinha and have the chance to mingle with fellow students and the Caminhos team.
