Portuguese in the Favela

Portuguese students with Michael Jackson

Our students with the King of Pop.

Der Ausflug in die Favela Santa Marta gestern war wirklich beeindruckend! Ricardo hat uns sicher durch die Strassen gefuehrt. Wir sind mit der “bonde” den Berg hochgefahren und hatten – wie immer in Rio – mal wieder einen Wahnsinnsausblick! Natuerlich sind wir zur Statue von Michael Jackson gegegangen und haben einige Fotos geschossen. Am Beeindruckendsten fuer mich war aber der Rueckweg durch die engen Gassen und die steilen Treppen der Favela hinunter. Hier haben wir einen richtigen Eindruck davon bekommen, wie die Menschen hier leben. Zum Abschluss ein kleiner Drink durfte natuerlich auch nicht fehlen. Ein wirklich toller Ausflug!!

Portuguese in the Favela is something very common for foreigners who come to Rio and decide to visit these places. Praça do Cantão, a project made by two dutch guys was the ick off for our RioLIVE! at this time at Favela Santa Marta, the Portuguese students from Rio & Learn could get a little bit more information about the project, it was very good for them to see so many colors and joy in a place that in the past had a lot of problems.

Our students from China, Colômbia, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, United States, Venezuela and  France continued their visit walking around the place and also through the alleys that only these kind of community can offer. Then they took the trooley to the up part of the favela to visit Michael Jackson’s Roof, a very famous place since the King of Pop recorded the videoclip for the song They really care about us.
After taaking a lot of pictures, they were really happy with this amazing experience definetly it will be an unforgettable moment for them while they stay in Rio. And you? Ready to learn Portuguese and take part in our RioLIVE Activities?
