“I was very satisfied with my classes at Brazil Ahead. The teachers and administrators are excellent and knowledgeable, as well as personable. Going beyond their plans they had developed for classes and material to be covered, they were flexible enough to answer our questions and respond to individual concerns. In so doing, and by virtue of their explanations of points of grammar, pronunciation, and usage, as well as some games and learning devices, our learning was substantially advanced. After trying to learn Portuguese for several years, this semester advanced my knowledge most significantly. I will certainly feel more comfortable in my next trip to Brazil than I did before.”
