Learning to serve and serving Portuguese

Copacabana beach with sports

This activity with Zé was incredible. Playing volleyball on Copacabana beach in Rio was an experience I loved and want more of. Introducing play into learning a language keeps it refreshingand exciting. Thanks for creating this supportive learning space. I’m hooked on volleyball in Rio haha

Despite the shy sun, this was another hot day in Rio. Neither the rain nor the sand on Copacabana beach stopped the teacher and students: we played volleyball like no one else! The rain, in fact, like the beautiful gray sea, was a refreshing incentive for the game to go on firmly. We learned a lot together, about the sport and about the Portuguese language, with its beauties: “Go!”, “Good serve!”, “Almost there!”, “Cover the back!”, “Set the ball for me!”. But perhaps the biggest lesson was that, in volleyball, as in life, efficient communication is essential.
