"I chose to study Portuguese at Brazil Ahead because I wanted to be able to communicate fluently in another language. Brazil Ahead's class structure was way more flexible than other schools I looked at and all of the instructors I met were excellent teachers who were really excited to share their language and culture with students. In the two years that I have been taking classes with Cristhiane and her team, I have learned to speak and understand Brazilian Portuguese and appreciate all of its beauty. In classes, we use music, movies and TV shows to make the language relevant and interesting. One of the big problems I had when trying to learn languages in the past was becoming bored with the material. The teachers at Brazil Ahead make every class a unique experience and focus on what you want to learn, while teaching you the tougher points (like grammar and pronunciation) in a way that makes sense to the individual student. If you really want to learn how to speak Portuguese, beyond ordering from a menu or asking for a hotel room (though the awesome instructors could also teach you that), then take classes at Brazil Ahead."
