My husband and I came to Brasil for one month to learn Portuguese and enjoy the beautiful Ilha that is Florianópolis. The Language Club was the perfect place for us! The town is incredibly cute and the gente são muito boa! We had a small class and the professors made you very comfortable with speaking, reading, and hearing Português 😄We would recommend this place to anyone interested in learning the local language and meeting some wonderful people as well. Obrigada, The Language Club, por tudo! Até breve! ❤️

 I had three tutors at the Language Club and they were all great. They had a real love for teaching language, which made it easy to look forward to every class. My Portuguese improved by leaps and bounds thanks to Victor, Liz, and Rodrigo! And it’s in such a good spot in Lagoa, too :)

This is one of the best ideas to do while in Florianopolis, hone your skills in Portuguese! The school offers private and group classes all while providing highly professional teachers and staff and maintaining friendly and warm environment. The program is combining between written materials, video and audio all while making sure you are pronouncing the words correctly when you are speaking. If you have some time here, definitely a great time with them. Thank you guys it was a pleasure !

About the school

image2_edited.jpg

In 1993, a group of teachers who majored in Portuguese and English languages opened The Language Club in the small neighbourhood of Lagoa, intending to provide a communicative and humanist methodology for teaching foreign languages.

 

This club has flourished in a green and plural environment, and many students have studied with us, gaining fluency in a foreign language.

 

The school methodology emphasises oral (speech) development.  

 

It values transparent and collaborative communication with the students and monitors their progress and engagement in the learning process.
