Ótimo!

Caminho is truly great. I took 5 weeks of private lessons and now I plan to continue my study by taking online courses. My teachers are wonderful: Antonio, Bruno V, and Denise. The ladies at front desk are the real boss and the best administrative professionals I have ever worked with. Efficient, kind, and always ready to help. There were some hiccups caused by Covid and they were able to arrange everything seamlessly.

I look forward to learning and returning to Caminhos soon!

I look forward to returning

Amazing Portuguese School with Great Activities and a Friendly Community of People
lut 2021
I spent 2 months learning Portuguese at Caminhos and was extremely impressed by the quality of the teachers, textbooks, and the style of teaching. Classes are interactive and really work on teaching you the fundamental grammar of Portuguese while working on your listening and speaking skills. On top of that, the school has fun activities planned every week run by a very friendly group of staff members. From hikes to samba to volleyball, I had a great time exploring Rio while meeting an amazing community of travelers from around the world and local Brazilians as well. I made great friends from the school, which helped me work on my Portuguese and feel more comfortable in Rio.

If you want to learn Portuguese and explore Rio, Caminhos is a must!

The Best Portuguese School
sty 2021 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
I loved the 5 weeks I spent learning Portuguese at Caminhos! All of the teachers and the staff were fantastic. The group classes (4hr/day) offered the perfect mix of structure and fun in order to improve your Portuguese quickly. The school uses their own books and materials (included with the group classes) but the teachers still tailor the classes to the needs and interests of their groups.

With the ongoing pandemic, Caminhos is taking steps to ensure the safety of students and teachers. Everyone wears masks at all times and group classes have fewer students (anywhere from 2-6) than usual.

There are still plenty of outdoor afterschool activities - they were fun and a great way to get to know Rio.

I hope to return to Caminhos soon!

Get to know the real Rio and a group of friends to discover it with
lut 2020
Caminhos is not just a great place to learn Portuguese. Their programs allow you to use the language as a way to discover Rio de Janeiro and part of Brazilian culture in a way that you wouldn't be able to on your own. Even if you don't necessarily wish to master Portuguese, their group classes and cultural and social activities give you the chance to get to know the real Rio and a group of friends to discover it with. Highly recommended, both for learning the language and for the unique social and cultural experiences you'll have along the way.

Best school in Rio
sty 2020 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
I spent 1 month learning Portuguese and it was greatest experience ever. I wish I could have stayed longer since I felt I was making so much progress and it was such a great atmosphere.
I'd definitely recommend this school for anyone who wants to learn Portuguese fast whilst enjoying the Brazilian culture.

I’ve been taking classes with Caminhos for the last six weeks and I cannot recommend them enough. The physical location is currently closed due to COVID so I am doing online one-on-one courses with a private instructor (Antonio). Antonio is awesome and I always look forward to my lessons (currently three days a week). He’s a great guy; super easy to talk with and we have a lot of fun, even on my days where I feel like I’m just too busy with everything to focus on a foreign language. The whole program is great with scheduling and flexible. I’ve lived in three countries during these six weeks (Brazil, US and Mexico) and the online format has made it super easy to continue my studies while traveling. I hope to do some of their activities when things go back to normal in 2021. Overall great experience and definitely recommend.

Fantastic online Portuguese classes
wrz 2020 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
While travel has not been possible during the pandemic, I have been taking online Portuguese classes with Caminhos for a few months. My teacher, Fernando, is fantastic and a very knowledgeable linguist. He is great at correcting my accent when speaking Portuguese in exactly the right way. He also raises really interesting points for discussion during our sessions often offering great insight into Brazilian culture. I would recommend Caminhos for anyone looking for to improve their Portuguese as my experience with them has been really positive.

People there are doing a great job despite the pandemic !
lis 2020
I have started the courses with Caminhos during the pandemic, so I'm doing online courses with one of their teachers. Despite the exceptional circumstances, people who work there are very organized, helpful, attentive and kind. They are doing a great job ! You can feel in any exchanges that they do their best for you. The school has also its own material (books, exercices) and method, that I find very efficient, complete and motivating ! The exercices are done in order for you to learn interesting things about brazilian culture.
I strongly recommend this language school ! I am looking forward starting the group lessons when the school reopens.

The best Portuguese school!
paź 2020 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
When I first arrived in Rio, I took a week of intensive group classes, which proved invaluable after moving here from the UK. All of the teachers and staff were so welcoming and friendly, the number of students in each class was quite small, so you get plenty of chances to practicing talking, there were also free daily activities like dance classes, tours, volleyball games and nights out, which is such a great way to make even more friends - I did samba classes with Bruno, which were amazing!

I had originally planned to study Portuguese for a year once my 6 month tourist VISA expired, but I then had to shorten to 6 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The school were so understanding and flexible during this time and very supportive during the student VISA process (I applied in Brazil as I was already here). From providing a comprehensive guide to the VISA documents required, letting me know that the Federal Police had resumed VISA appointments (they suspended this service during the pandemic), to quickly preparing all of the school letter documents in time for my appointment, they made the whole process so much easier!

I ended up taking all of my classes online from October 2020, due to the pandemic and the school being physically closed - love that they put the safety of their students and staff before profit! I was a beginner who had lost a lot of confidence being indoors so much during the pandemic, I felt nervous just talking to the delivery man in Portuguese! My teachers Josie and Fernando made me feel so comfortable and the classes were a fun mix of real conversation and working through their activity books with supporting grammar books - you feel like you can have real conversations quite quickly, but you also feel like you’re advancing through the levels. Another thing I liked is that they split the language levels even further than A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1, which means you don’t necessarily need to start from the very beginning and it’s particularly good for group classes, as you’ll be with students at a very similar level - we’ve all taken ‘beginner classes’, where half the class are almost intermediate and you feel like the worst one in the class! All of the activity books and grammar books for each level are included in the price of your course too, which is such great value!

I honestly couldn’t recommend the school enough - whether you’re thinking of coming to Rio for a holiday, want to learn the basics and meet other people from around the world or live and study here, do it - you won’t regret it!

I studied Portuguese at Caminhos for several weeks this year both in Rio and online and I can't wait to go back. It's absolutely the best place to study Portuguese, have fun and get acquainted with the Brazilian culture. Both the staff and the teachers are beyond great and the location is really good too.
