Caminhos Language Centre is the most exciting Portuguese School in Brazil. We offer high quality Portuguese classes with native motivated teachers who will use unique course material. Caminhos also offers free and fun activities every day, including samba classes, capoeira, hikes, city tours, cultural events. Do your Bildungsurlaub program with us and learn Portuguese in a fun and relaxed environment in the heart of Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro.
Our Methodology and Courses
Our native Brazilian teachers will apply the communicative approach, using a range of topics, such as music and games to stimulate the conversation in Portuguese between the students.
Your schedule will be created mixing Caminhos’ Intensive Group Course, Private lessons and Caminhos Talk. During Group classes you will learn Portuguese in a fun environment with classmates from all around the world. For Private classes, a teacher will be assigned to you and the lessons will be tailored to suit your individual needs. You will also be enrolled in Caminhos Talk, a Portuguese course focused on improving your conversational skills.
Joining the Bildungsurlaub program, you will also be entitled to be a part of our free activities every day, which is good to meet new people and immerse yourself in the Brazilian culture.
How Does Blidungsurlaub Work?
In Germany, employees can apply for up to 10 days of educational leave if they want to enroll in a professional advanced training course. Workers can choose what they’re going to study, as long as it’s something that somehow benefits the company. If both parts agree on the course chosen, the employee has the legal right of making use of Bildungsurlaub.
Each federal state requires a certain quantity of lessons or course content. Caminhos Language Centre is able to create a custom schedule to fulfill the required hours of study, from 20 to 40 hours a week of intensive Portuguese classes.
