Best Moments in the Olympics

Best Moments in the Olympics

Best Moments in the Olympics. The Olympic Spirit: O Espírito Olímpico.
All good things must come to an end, and so did the Olympic Games in Rio.
On our Dica today, we’ll see the best moments in the Olympics. Those who will stay forever in our memory!

The Games proved us something we all knew: Politicians in Brazil think more about kangaroos than infrastructure. But fortunately, in the Opening Ceremony, Rio rocked! It was a spectacle for all the world to see!

And talking about spectacle, we need to talk about Usain Bolt, the legend on the track, and Michael Phelps, the legend in the water. We have serious doubts if these two guys are humans. And it was in the water that something historical happened. The United States won their 1000th medal in Olympic Games with the female swimming team. Brazil will get there some day! Wait for us!

The Olympic Spirit

The coolest thing in the Olympic Games is the Olympic Spirit, you know? Athletes helping each other, peace between nations, and of course, diversity!

These were the Olympics of love! We had a fan meeting her crush, we had a marriage proposal, and we learned that for Brazilian people, love is more important than medals, isn’t it right? Another thing that Brazilian love is to root. We root for anyone! We root for our own athletes, we root for other countries athletes, and we root even for the judge, if it’s the case.

For the medal!

We learned that, for a medal, a Brazilian is capable of anything! Even throwing himself on the track. Good to know that we are an example to other athletes! And those who couldn’t get the medal this year will certainly win in 2020!

Those were the best moments in the Olympics, guys.
That was the first time we received the games in Rio, and the first time we see we are the center of the world. It was a very important event for us and an incredible experience! We hope that you had as much fun as us, and that you feel welcome to come back whenever you want. We’ll be waiting!

Thank you for everything and remember that Rio & Learn is always with our doors opened!

I’ve just started online classes with Prof. Ana Carolina & she is the absolute best! It’s my first time learning Portuguese and I was speaking full sentences in the first class. Obrigada!

Small classes, diverse accents, and engaging professors make Rio & Learn Online a fantastic choice! I've been thrilled with my experience at Rio & Learn Online so far. The small class sizes (around 1-3 others students) allow for personalized attention and plenty of opportunities to practice speaking. What's more, having different professors throughout the program exposes you to various accents, preparing you for real-world interactions. I opted for the full-time program, which involves 2 hours of daily learning from Monday to Friday. After just over 12 weeks, I can confidently say my Portuguese has improved dramatically. The professors are incredibly engaging and encourage students to utilize real-life examples, solidifying the learning process. While I'm only halfway through the program, I'm confident in recommending Rio & Learn Online to anyone seeking to learn Portuguese in a supportive and effective environment. I've gone from being a complete beginner (only knowing hi and bye) to holding conversations - and I'm excited to see how much further I can progress! I'll be back with another review after completing the program, but for now: Rio & Learn Online - highly recommended!

Rio & Learn e um novo jeito de ensinar a lingua portuguesa. Puro prazer e muito eficiente. Quanto mais alunos na aula mais vida. Eu aconselho voces escolher as aulas grupais por porque sao interativas: rir, falar, argumentar, compartir uma lingua!

Après 3 semaines que je suis dans cette école et je peux déjà parler portugais. Certe avec des erreurs mais j'ai fait des progrès fulgurant. En plus, du Lundi au Vendredi l'ecole propose des activitées qu'il appelle "Rio Live" ce qui permet de visiter en même temps Rio tout en parlant Portugais et de rencontrer des gens😃 Toute l'équipe est genial et est prêts à aider si besoin 😁
I've been taking the group online courses with Rio&Learn for 2 months. They offer a fantastic way to learn Portuguese and get speaking practice if you don't live in Brazil. The teachers are engaging and are able to adjust their level of Portuguese to whatever level you are at. Obrigado!

C'est vraiment fantastique...RioAndLearn. Les cours de portugais...ça vaut vraiment la peine. Les cours ont lieu du lundi au vendredi, (de 9h à 13h) et en après midi, ce sont des activités libres en groupe. (Soccer de plage, volleyball , excursions, visites des lieux touristiques, etc) Vendredi soir, on est allé à Lapa, un quartier nocturne de Rio. C'est quelque chose à voir! Des rues bondées de monde, des orchestres, des discothèques...Allô les décibels! L'apprentissage du portugais se fait en immersion, aussi bien en salle de classe que dans les activités extérieures organisées par Rio&Learn. On est plongé dans la langue portugaise et la culture Brésilienne.... Obligé de parler portugais....🫡 Je le recommande. Pierre Pedro, Montréal, Canada
