Volleyball in the Cidade Maravilhosa

The sand and net

Volleyball was a great way to finish the day with our classmates. It is always fun practicing another language in a different scenario such as during a competitive game.

Start of the game

Our students had the unique experience of learning Portuguese while playing volleyball in Copacabana. Amidst warm greetings and friendly conversations, they were able to immerse themselves in the local language, absorbing idiomatic expressions and everyday words. Each match turned into an impromptu lesson, where vocabulary was practiced in real-life situations. The students learned to request a ball, give instructions to teammates, and even make jokes to break the ice between sets. Volleyball became not only a sport but also a platform for cultural immersion.
