Michael Jackson y Rio _ Learn
Our Portuguese students with the King of Pop.

Nous sommes allΓ©s visiter une favela de Rio oΓΉ Michael Jackson a tournΓ© un vidΓ©oclip il y a plusieurs annΓ©es. JΒ΄ai beaucoup apprΓ©ciΓ© la visite de cette communautΓ© parce que cela sΒ΄est fait en toute simplicitΓ© et dans le respect des membres de la communautΓ©. Nous sommes tous curieux de voir comment vivent les habitants des favelas de Rio. La favela de Santa Marta est lΒ΄une des plus sΓ©curitaire de Rio et offre un point de vue magnifique sur la ville! Merci Γ  Rio Live de nous avoir permis de vivre cette expΓ©rience!

RioLIVE! en la favela
Ready to go up Santa Marta!

Favela, Portuguese and Emotion. That was our RioLIVE! at this time, the Portuguese students of Rio & Learn visited one of the most popular favelas in Rio de Janeiro, Favela Santa Marta or also called Dona Marta.

Our students from The United States, Japan, Canada and Switzerland could have a closer contact on how these communities look like. In their opinion, the most interesting part was the contrast between the favela and the south part of the city, since this is richest one. They really liked the people there and how they enjoy life even with some difficulties.

One of the best moments of the visit was when they went to the top part of the favela and could see the statue of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. In 1996, he filmed a video clip at Santa Marta, students were really happy, amazed and also emotioned for being there. We finished our RioLIVE! having some drinks at a local bar and of course practing our Portuguese as always. Come you too and take part in our RioLIVE! Activities.
