Leme Beach in Rio

playa de leme. Leme Beach in Rio. A praia do Leme fica ao lado da praia de Copacabana.

Olá! Beautiful day and perfect for a refreshing dive in Leme Beach in Rio, right? Next to Copacabana, you’ll find this smaller yet comfortable upper-middle-class neighborhood.

Leme

Leme was named after a Brazilian pioneer and because its rock formations resemble the rudder of a ship. It wasn’t until late XIX century that people started living there and made it the popular neighborhood it is today.

Sports

Also, it’s a great spot to play some sports, specially those most suitable for the beach, like Volleyball, Beach soccer and Frescobol. 

So, you’re in a beautiful beach and you can even play some great sports in the company of friends or family!

Hotel Windsor Atlântica (Hilton)

It holds one of the biggest Hotels in Rio de Janeiro, the biggest in Copacabana to this day. Hotel Windsor Atlantica, former Lé Meridien that resembles a monolith and it’s a touristic hotspot. It became famous for its fireworks’ shows in Copacabana for the Reveillon party.

Leme Beach in Rio

Leme’s beach is amazing, connecting to Copacabana and Ipanema, it’s their smaller and calmer sister, being a great call if you’re avoiding big crowds. It’s beautiful and houses the Duque de Caxias fort, that we visit on our RioLIVE!, right on top of it’s rock formations.

A cozy place, Leme is preferred by Cariocas for not having too many people around, so you pretty much have a whole beach to yourself!

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
