Frequently asked questions:
Do I need a student visa (Temporary Visa IV)?
Not for the three-month course, as a tourist visa allows foreigners to stay up to 90 days in Brazil. Check with the Brazilian Consulate in your country about specific requirements for a tourist visa. The Language Club can provide documentation for a student visa application, upon request

Yes, you can. Check below the 28-Aug-23 group level expected at different future dates :

Do you provide accommodation options?
Yes, take a look here!
Do you provide immersion activities in addition to the classes?
We offer orientation sessions, hikes, and conversation opportunities and organize visits to museums and other place of interest on the island. Floripa is easy to get around; after the initial settling-in period and our general orientation, students will find it easy and enjoyable to explore on their own or with new friends.
