Bildungsurlaub Program in Brazil

Bildungsurlaub program in brazil

Course Description

Bildungsurlaub Recognition is an educational leave. It is when a German company give an employee 10 days of vacation to study, not classified as part of their annual leave.

In Germany, depending on the federal state, full time employees can apply for up to 10 days of educational leave within two calendar years. Workers can choose what they’re going to study, as long as it’s something which will benefit the company. Many airline companies encourage employees to apply for Bildungsurlaub (Luftansa, KLM, etc). These airline staff usually need to learn Portuguese if they are flying in and out of Brazil.

  •   Fantastic experience! I took 4 weeks of classes and did a home-stay with Fatima (who's so nice and fun) and had an excellent experience from start to finish. The administration is very responsive and organized and gets you arranged with everything you need fast and efficiently. Great teachers and activities! I would love to come back and take more classes here. I learned a lot and still have my materials for reference.

  •   Highly recommended to jump start your ability to understand and interact with the people and events around Rio. Fun and professional staff, who bring to their work the easy charm and rhythm of Cariocas. Good people who know their job.

  •   From the moment I emailed, Caminhos were fantastic. They were super responsive, helpful and I instantly felt I was in great hands. They are fantastic value for money and the standard of teaching is superb!! I travelled alone and was so grateful for the additional activities they offered and the WhatsApp group, which was a really handy way to meet new people. They also offer accommodation and a tourist pack, which was really handy and made me feel like I had people on the ground if I needed them.
    I did a group class, which was fantastic and really interactive. They clearly have a lot of experience and know what they are doing. I only wish I could have stayed longer, or done this years ago, but I will be back!!

    I firmly recommend them. The area is safe, the staff are really energetic and helpful, the lesson structure was SPOT ON and the school was perfect!!

    I loved my time there and would recommend it to anyone!!

    Obrigada Caminhos!!!!!!

  •   I was 2 weeks at the school and really enjoyed classes - highly motivated teachers and great afternoon activities to get to know not only the language, but also Brasil, its people, habits and culuture - and most of all the happy way of living!

  •   I was here for 8 weeks and I feel so much more confident at talking Portuguese and learning complicated grammar. The teachers are really enthusiastic, super prepared, dedicated and thorough. Each language level you learn a different type of grammar structure/tense and over the two weeks you really are able to hone in on what you have been taught. Mais Caminhos provide you with a range of materials that you can take home too to revise at a later stage. In the lessons you are also able to learn many cultural things, history, slang and songs from Brazil, which I didn't really get much of from my classes at home.

    All the staff at Mais Caminhos are super friendly and welcoming, they are there to answer any questions and help you settle in. The facilities are really good - clean toilets, free wifi, access to coffee and water and phone charging stations. They also run some fab activities that really gives you the chance to socialise with people, practise Portuguese and give you the confidence to travel around the city. There is also the chance to get involved in their Social Volunteering Programme, which I think is great too.

    Thanks so much Mais Caminhos for a great 8 weeks! Would definitely recommend to anyone to go and have a go!

  •   Caminhos Language Centre, its patient staff, and energetic student body provided a soft landing for someone like me; someone with virtually no experience traveling outside of their own country much less studying another language. Outside of class are a lot of fun opportunities to make new friends, see the city, the mountains around it, etc. The fundamental skills I've learned at Caminhos provide a solid foundation I will continue building on as I travel throughout Brazil. Studying here has been a genuine pleasure, challenge and reward, which I recommend to anyone traveling in Brazil. More

  •   The staff surprised me by working so hard to accommodate students - especially those who are visiting Brazil or living in Brazil for the first time. When I had a problem getting money from an ATM, a staff member walked me to a nearby bank to help me figure it out. They also provided free guides on things like getting a Brazilian phone number or CPF.

    By far one of the best things about the school is that they arrange activities (either completely free or not too expensive) that allow us to meet other students and practice Portuguese. I saw many parts of the city and visited a lot of places I would not have seen otherwise. I particularly enjoyed the beach volleyball and samba classes!

    I had three different teachers and all of them deeply cared about their job. I also met other teachers at the school through the informal classes/homework sessions that were energetic and happy to go over concepts or help me learn new words. I think the fact that the teachers are multilingual (usually with English as a second language), allows them to be empathetic to those of us who are learning Portuguese and nervous to make mistakes. And being multilingual (not all language teachers are...) helps them explain slang and complex concepts that are hard to translate.

    Besides that the school is working actively to connect with children in the surrounding communities. They even had an art showcase of the children's photography.

  •   The school has very nice staff, competent and well-prepared teachers and a great after-school program. I took classes for 5 weeks and feel a lot more confident with my Portuguese level now, than before coming here. I enjoyed my time at caminhos and look forward to greeting them again in the future.
