Forte Duque de Caxias

Students of Rio _ Learn Portuguese School

Our Portuguese students enjoying the view.

La actividad de ayer fue en Forte do Leme, un lugar con mucha historia y también una vista maravillosa de la playa de Copacabana, al Cristo Redentor, al Pão de Açúcar y Niterói. Un lugar que fue muy estratégico para el ejercito de Brasil y ahora para los turistas poder tomar unas muy buenas fotos de la cuidad de Rio. La actividad no solo fue una buena técnica para aprender la lengua portuguesa, si no también su cultura e historia. Y lo mejor de todo, compartir con nuestros compañeros que son de diferentes culturas y esto nos llena de conocimientos.

Our RioLIVE! this time was a visit at Forte Duque de Caxias, also known as Forte do Leme. We started our activity with a nice walk by the Copacabana’s beach until Leme’s beach. Located in an environmental protectied area, we could have a closer contact with nature and some animals, our students from England, New Zealand, Italy, Venezuela, France, Slovakia, Porto Rico, United States, Japan and Costa Rica could take a lot of photos with some monkeys that welcomed us in our way through the track. When we arrived at the top of the fort, we got really amazed with its beauty. From there, it is possible to see Pão de Açúcar, Cristo Redentor, the city of Niterói, Copacabana and Ipanema’s beach, among other landscapes in Rio de Janeiro.

In the end, we watched a movie that tells a story about the Leme’s Fort, its construction, its acting and its function in the society nowadays. It was a very interesting RioLIVE! for our students to practice their Portuguese. Join us, have fun practicing Portuguese at our RioLIVE! Activities.
