Copacabana is where everything big happens in Rio! And Copacabana beach is for sure the most famous beach in the world. And you know where our school is located? Well, if you walk out of our building and look to the left, there is the beach! There isn’t a better place to learn Portuguese than here!

Have you ever studied very close to the beach? Rio & Learn is just a few metres away from the beach, so you can relax after your class and enjoy the world’s most famous beach, Copacabana.

Our Incredible Teachers

At our Portuguese school in Rio de Janeiro, we not only have incredible methods and location, but amazing teachers as well! Our teachers are entirely qualified to teach Portuguese. They are also young, full of energy and really funny! They will guide you through out learning not only Portuguese but also about the Brazilian culture! 

All our teachers possess a complete college degree (or are working towards one) and have (quite a bit of) previous teaching experience. They won’t just present our lessons, but work hard to ensure you have fun while learning!

Our Amazing Classes

Our teachers actively encourage all students to participate and be engaged in their learning, with a focus on real conversations. We train our students to communicate effectively in real-life situations.

We never translate our Portuguese classes into another language, as our objective is to instill in our students the confidence to express themselves authentically in a new language. Our teachers reenact real-life scenarios so students can train the language skills necessary to navigate various social situations.

In our Portuguese Language School, we also incorporate practical exercises outside of the classroom where students have the opportunity to interact with native speakers in Rio de Janeiro. This not only accelerates their language acquisition, but also helps them overcome any doubts or fears they might have about speaking with natives.

Portuguese Immersion School Methods

To speed up your learning process, our methods Funlearning and Livelearning encourage you to participate and speak up. It also attempts to simulate real-life situations! Our Portuguese school also teaches about Brazil and its culture, so your knowledge is well-rounded and up-to-date.


Funlearning, as the own name states, is all about having fun! It’s well known that while relaxed, our brains are more able to retain information and learn faster! That is why all our classes, from online to in-person, are based on the concept of having fun while we learn! You will see our teachers are always finding new ways to make classes productive and interesting!


On the other hand, we have Livelearning as a complement to Funlearning! This method is based on the idea of complete immersion for faster and improved learning process. This means no other language besides Portuguese is spoken during our classes, and we provide an environment where our students can taste the Brazilian culture and essence!

Learn Portuguese in Brazil

People often say that the best way to learn is to immerse yourself, right? Why not have a full immersion in Brazilian culture and language, and learn while having fun with our Portuguese school? Our in-person classes are built in a way where you won’t be inside the classroom all day long: we plan activities outside all related to the content you’ll have to learn in Portuguese. Why not go to a day at the beach while learning beach related vocabulary, for example? Discover how our in-person courses are designed!
