In June, six kids of Mais Caminhos were sent to Europe to spend a month in Slovakia and Poland for the Brave Kids Festival. This event bring together kids and teenagers form all over the world to discuss humanitarian issues and exchange ideas that will help their social development. Our main goal is create a positive transformation in those kids lives, giving them the opportunit to be part of a multicultural festival abroad.
Caminhos Language Centre, a portuguese school for foreigners in Rio, organized a Brazilian Speed Dating event to bring Brazilians and foreigners together for fun and exciting night. More than 100 people were there and Caminhos brought a lot of new couples together in love.

She’s been paddle surfing, she’s eating a lot of rice and beans and, most of all, she’s having a lot of fun while in Rio during her internship with Caminhos Language Centre. Unfortunatly, she also had her fgirt bad experience with Rio’s violence. And she can tell you all in her new blog post.

During the month of December, Caminhos Language Centre organized two celebrations at the school to celebrate Christmas. The first one occured on a Saturday, and students and staff could get together to eat, talk and have fun in a traditional Christmas spirit environment. Then, on December 23rd we had a cultural activity at the school where teachers showed the students how Brazilians celebrate Christmas in Brazil.
Celpe-Bras is the only official proficiency certificate of Brazilian Portuguese as a foreign language recognized by the Brazilian government.
Every two weeks, Caminhos starts new group classes for people from all around the world. And to welcome the new students, we offer an orientation lunch with lots of Brazilian traditional food so they can savor the local diet. We also give them useful information about the school, Ipanema and Rio de Janeiro in general.
