Portuguese from above

RioLIVE! at Sugar Loaf

Our Portuguese students at Pão de Açúcar.

Gestern waren wir auf dem Zuckerhut. Zuerst ging es mit der Seilbahn auf den Berg vor dem Zuckerhut, dem Morro da Urca. Von da hatten wir eine wunderschoene Sicht auf ganz Rio! Wir haben ganz viele Fotos gemacht und uns dann auf den Weg zur zweiten Etappe gemacht. Eine weitere Seilbahn brachte uns nun auf den beruehmten Zuckerhut. Da das Wetter leider nicht zu unseren Gunsten war, konnten wir aufgrund des starken Nebels nur die Umrisse von Rio erahnen. Trotz allem war es eine tolle Erfahrung, so hoch ueber der Stadt zu sein! Rio ist so gross, dass man vom Zuckerhut aus nur die suedliche Haelfte sehen kann, die Zona Sul. Ich empfehle jedem einen Ausflug auf den Zuckerhut! Der Blick ueber Rio ist, wie sagt man so schoen auf Portugiesisch, maravilhosa, wie Rio selbst! 🙂

How about some Portuguese from above? Pão de Açúcar is one of the most popular touristic places in Rio de Janeiro. Located at the neighborhood of Urca, it is formed by two hills, Morro da Urca and Morro do Pão de Açúcar, and it is visited by many tourists that look for having a very nice view of Rio de Janeiro. From there, you can have a nice view from the whole city, including the beaches of the South Zone, Leme and Copacabana.
The Rio & Learn Portuguese students from Germany, Switzerland, Japan and China, could know a little bit better each other and practice their Portuguese. They had the opportunity to take the cable car and enjoy a nice ride and enjoy more views of the city, surely an experience that they will not forget.
In this RioLIVE! the students talked about their experience of living in Brazil and the details of Rio de Janeiro, such as the amazing mixture of beaches, forests and buildings inside the city. We are sure that the students loved this activity. What about you? What are you waiting for to study Portuguese and take part in our RioLIVE! Activities?!
