Don’t worry, it’s ok if you can’t come to Brazil right now, you can still learn Portuguese with us online!
With our online Portuguese course, you’ll have a taste of samba, caipirinha and summer sun without even leaving your home. Language is very powerful!
Our Portuguese language course online allows you to study and learn Portuguese… and share the experience with other students. So you will be able to practice and make friends that are willing to speak Portuguese as much as you are! Our group classes are limited to 2-6 people. You will be learning from native teachers, based in Rio de Janeiro, who are well prepared to teach you everything you need to know.
Our classes will take place from Monday to Friday, 2 hours per day (10 hours/week), and you will be able to choose 3 timetable options to suit your time zone: from 9-11 am, from 2-4 pm or from 6-8 pm (All times are shown in Rio de Janeiro time). You will meet in a virtual classroom, created by the school. Don’t worry, it’s very easy to get into the classroom and if you have any problems or doubts we will be online to help you. In this an online Portuguese course, you will have access to all the material you study in each class, as well as out-of-class exercises and all of our Dicas do Dia to practice between classes.
Different to other online courses, the school and our teachers will watch your progress and give a personalized follow up of your classes, in order to make sure that every week you are in a group with classmates of the same Portuguese level. So you can change groups weekly depending on how your performance in class is. It will help you to always be in a group with your current Portuguese level while advancing at your own pace. Language courses usually use a rigid system where all students in the same group need to study all the lessons together at the same pace, this means there are always groups with students of slightly different levels, as every person has a different speed learning. With Rio & Learn, if you need to evolve faster you can advance through the classes faster and you even can skip lessons that you don’t need anymore. On the other hand if you prefer to take it slower, it is not a problem, you will go at a comfortable pace and reinforce lessons without repeating the same educational content.
Once you’ve completed your course, you will be awarded a certificate. So, if you need proof that you can speak Portuguese, this is an online Portuguese course with a certificate.

Holiday Days in Brazil 2021
In Brazil we have some holidays that you don’t have in your country. We don’t want you to loose any classes in your online Portuguese course, so we show you the Brazilian holidays. We also have some holidays that only happen in Rio de Janeiro, and they can also change our schedule, see them on the same link. Let’s explain you here what will happen in each case, take a look. Whenever we have a holiday during the week, you’ll have more hours of classes in another day. That way you’ll still have the same number of hours that you bought and won’t loose anything.
When we have a holiday on a Wednesday, for example, you’ll have one more hour of class on Friday and another hour on the day before the holiday, in this case on Tuesday. That is, you’ll have more hours of classes in the day before the holiday and in the Friday of the same week.
If the holiday is on Friday, we’ll have the hours of the class you won’t have on Tuesday and Wednesday of the week of the holiday (not in the day before). When the holiday is on a Monday, you’ll recover the hours of classes on Tuesday and Friday.
If you study from 9 to 11 or 14 to 16 (Brazilian time) the additional hour is going to be added after your class. But if you study from 18 to 20, the additional hour is going to be added before your class. Let’s see an example in a table, shall we?
Let’s take for example the Independence Day holiday on September 7th. This holiday in 2021 is on a Tuesday, so you’re classes will have one more hour on Wednesday and Friday. For these special days with more than two hours class, this will be how we will add the hour:
|Regular hours||Additional hour|
We organize it like this because we don’t want you to loose any of your classes in your online Portuguese course, and that way you won’t ;).
If we have two holidays in the same week we won’t have full-time lessons that week.
Pay attention that the schedule may change in 2021 due the covid-19 pandemic, specially the carnival.
