We went to Copacabana beach to play Volleyball. The weather and the scenery were perfect (not too hot!) and we all had a great time. Everyone was really enthusiastic but no-one was too serious which was good, it was a lot of fun! We played with three or four people on each team and took turns to serve etc. Our ability levels varied (I was the worst), but everyone was really encouraging and it was a good atmosphere to learn both Volleyball and Portugese.

In one more beautiful afternoon in Rio de Janeiro, we went to Copacabana’s beach to practice some sport and speak Portuguese. It was a culturally diverse activity, because there were students from Asia, America and Europe. Everybody with the same synchrony and with the same goal: Playing beach volley and practice some Portuguese. Earlier at the class, we´ve learned vocabulary about the beach and sport. The propose of the RioLive!, is to practice Portuguese outside the classroom. So, they reached this goal, once the students interected all the time, speaking Portuguese. Come and take part at Riolive! activities.
Em mais uma bela tarde de sol no Rio de Janeiro, fomos à praia de Copacabana para praticar esporte e falar português. Foi uma atividade muito diversificada culturalmente, pois havia alunos da Ásia, América, África e Europa. Todos na mesma sincronia e com o mesmo objetivo: jogar Beach volley e praticar português. Mais cedo na aula, havíamos falado sobre vocabulários pertinentes à praia e ao esporte. A proposta das atividades RioLIVE!, é a prática do português além da sala de aula. Então, o objetivo foi alcançado, uma vez que todos interagiram de maneira constante, praticando português. Venha você também participar das atividades RioLIVE!
