Samba Drum Class
I really enjoyed the samba class. Like always I was useless, but the class was a lot of fun. After the class we watched some real musicians playing. The square was full of people dancing, singing and drinking caipirinhas. I drank my first caipirinha while we listened to great music and watched the sun set. The sky turned from blue to orange, pink, purple and black. It was a beautiful start to the weekend!
Last Friday our Portuguese students had a funny drum class and enjoyed a carioca night. We met at Rio & Learn in Copacabana and then we headed to Pedra do Sal, considered by many people: The Cradle of Samba. When we started our drum class, our students practiced their Portuguese a lot and could improve their vocabulary. As the teacher used numbers to teach the rhythm, the students could practice the numbers in Portuguese.
