…Meine Leidenschaft fΓΌr Samba und Bossa Nova haben mich vor einiger Zeit dazu motiviert Portugiesisch zu lernen und nach Rio zu kommen. Da kam es gerade richtig, dass wir diese Woche die MΓΆglichkeit hatten den legendΓ€rsten Tanz Brasiliens in einer Privatstunde mit einem Tanzlehrer kennenzulernen. Es ist beeindruckend wie schnell man von einem Profi die Basics im Samba erlernt und sich damit gleich etwas souverΓ€ner ins Nachtleben von Rio stΓΌrzen kann. Der Sambakurs war nur eine der vielen abwechslungsreichen AktivitΓ€ten die Rio&learn tΓ€glich unverbindlich anbietet. Zusammen mit dem Unterricht am Vormittag, haben es mir die AktivitΓ€ten ermΓΆglicht viel schneller als erwartet Portugiesisch zu lernen und vor allem viele neue Aspekte der brasilianischen Kultur kennenzulernen.

Samba, one of the most popular dances all around the world; an old dance you have to feel. But it goes further from an ancient way of life, it’s a way of expression and it is also a way to have fun! That’s what we did yesterday at Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. We left behind our bad feelings and shames; we just closed our eyes and felt the rythm of this marvelous music.

The fantastic group was formed by 7 Rio & Lean’s students from USA, New Zeland, Germany, South Korea, Austria and Colombia. It was interesting to see how RioLIVE! Activities and samba can gather people from different countries and cultures and mix them all in a magic moment.

Our students started with the samba basics step by step, but slowly the rythm entered in their veins until turn them into a group of professionals. In the end, the music was quite fastΒ andΒ they could enjoy all the steps learnt before.

Finally they ended the activity speaking Portuguese with the Samba teacher. It was another example of what Funlearning is!
