Frequently asked questions:
Do I need a student visa (Temporary Visa IV)?
For the three-month course, a tourist visa is sufficient as it allows foreigners to stay up to 90 days in Brazil. Specific requirements for a tourist visa can be verified with the Brazilian Consulate in your country. The Language Club can assist with documentation for a student visa application upon request.
Can I join the course after its start date?
Yes, joining after the start date is possible if the student's level aligns with an ongoing group. Our small groups benefit from the addition of new members, enhancing group dynamics and language practice.
Do you provide accommodation options?

Do you provide immersion activities in addition to the classes?
We offer an initial orientation session to familiarize students with Lagoa and Floripa, covering location, commuting, safety, and area services such as restaurants, laundry, and banks. While Floripa is easy to navigate, our orientation helps students settle in and feel comfortable exploring the city independently or with newfound friends.
Daily coffee breaks are provided.
Socio-cultural gatherings are organized in the school lounge, offering conversational opportunities and activities such as learning to cook Brazilian dishes like moqueca, preparing pizza, or enjoying Brazilian music.
Hikes can be arranged upon demand.
We maintain regular communication with students to monitor their progress and satisfaction.
