“Best language school in Rio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Vivi and the other professors I had were phenomenal - they catered to my level of portuguese, as well as my unique goals. I would highly recommend for FLAS students, or anyone else who's just passing through the city.

“Best Portuguese teacher!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

I had intensives lessons with Vivi and then doing conversation classes (on going) at her school.

I have had many languages lessons over the years (english when I moved to the UK from France), Russian and now Portuguese. I find the method to teach Portuguese for foreigners that Vivi has developed is extremely efficient and will get you speaking very quickly.
She is a genius as explaing grammar and conjugaison in a way that is totally clear to understand and fun, despite the dry subject. It shows her deep understanding of the portuguese's grammar.

I always look forward to my lessons with her, unlike some other teachers that I have had in Rio who bored me to death or got me totally confused on grammar.

She is extremely talented for teaching and she is the best language teacher that I have ever had. On top of that her classes are absolutely brilliant in their design. It is a very intelligent approach and efficient.
I definitely recommend to study with her if you want to learn brazilian portuguese quickly. Ideal for expats.
