We celebrated the end of the week at São Cristóvão.

We celebrated the end of the week at São Cristóvão. We had a really good time eating, drinking, dancing and doing karaoke in Portuguese.  São Cristóvão is a large venue in the north of Rio with lots of shops, restaurants and bars. We ate lots of food and drank lots of caipirinhas.  It was a great place to meet lots of Cariocas who were really friendly and interested to meet some gringos. I think they were surprised to see us (attempting) to sing karaoke in Portuguese.  A band on the stage played a modern interpretation of Forro – and we did our best to dance along. A good night was had by all.

Birthday at Feira!

Birthday at Feira!

Last Friday, the students and teachers of Rio & Learn enjoyed the birhday at Feira. We were all together to celebrate teacher Diogo’s birthday. The night provided a lot of drinks, Northeastern food, Portuguese, fun, karaoke and forró.
We left Copacabana and headed by bus to Feira de São Cristóvão, inside the bus it was already possible to realize that the evening would be exciting because our students were really excited about having a birthday at feira. When we arrived there, we walked a little among the stores but it was a bit fast because everybody was hungry and we went to barraca da chiquita to have dinner. In our menu, it couldn’t miss baião de dois and carne de sol. We ate a lot.
Who said that the night was over? Our next step was dancing forró. Our students could practice their Portuguese and talk to other Brazilians. Besides that, we watched the concert of the band mala 100 alça, at midnight, everybody was ready to sing happy birthday to teacher Diogo, in Portuguese of course. To finish our birthday at feira, we went to a karaoke and we had a blast. The best part of it, was the teachers Pablo and Diogo, in 5 opportunities, they got the best score. It was an amazing night!
Come you too to have fun and speak Portuguese in our RioLIVE! Activities.
