Carioca Languages's goal is to make the student able to transmit opinions and develope subjects in Portuguese feeling confortable and confident before any linguistics situation. Therefore, our classes are dynamic, separated in grammar, conversation, debates and cultural immersions. Thus, our students build up oral and written skills all together.
Our teachers seek to bring the brazilian everyday environment to the classes, commenting news and facts, discussing cultural themes and indicating the best activities and places to get to know, in the city and in the country.
We work with our own material, developed accoding to the students' needs. This material contains both the essencial and formal grammar of the language, and informal grammar of the streets, with expressions and slangs. If it's of the student's interest, we also work with other books of the market, like “Avenida Brasil”, “Muito Prazer”, “Falar, Ler e Escrever” etc.
Our methodology varies according to the mother language of the student, so there are differences in the teaching approach for students who speak Spanish or Italian as their first language, or for those who are literates in an idiom that is not latin.
