I would like to introduce you to a great project we put together.
O Instituto Cultural de Língua e Cultura Brasileira - ILC Brasil
The ILC Brasil was designed to cover a gap I have identified after spending most of my adult life as an expat and saw how hard it was for people I knew to find good resources to learn Portuguese as a second language (bad books, private teachers without a structured approach to the subjects etc.)
To close this gap we gathered a great group of teachers (PhD's with years of foreign language classroom experience!) to put together a Brazilian Portuguese program that follows the European Common Framework and that teaches Portuguese in the same approach as Alliance Française teaches French, Instituto Cervantes teacher Spanish and Goethe Inst. teaches German etc.
It bites me that no one has done this before, but the matter of the fact is that we are very confident we have a great course to offer.
I'd like to invite you to check us out and spread the word. If you want classes in Rio or know people who do, please let us know and contact me through Internations or through my email Protected content
