The area
Address
Neighborhood: Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.

I really enjoyed studying Portuguese at the Rio and Learn for my 160 hours. The professors were nice, the classes benefitting for my Portuguese, I had a desire learn Portuguese after I arrived in Brazil, (I'm a person who begin Portuguese from zero knowledge). After taking the class I thought I was improve my Portuguese so much! Their educational approach guarantees that you will learn a lot of Portuguese quick also they provide a lot of opportunities to use what you learned in real-life situations from having conversation with Carioca, shopping at a market and even sitting in the Bar!!
Thank you for all support to the teachers, especially Dayane, Vinicius, and Dani!!
Staying at Dona Rosa’ family was amazing too, the family is so warm and make me felt like home. All in all I had a wonderful time there. I could easily have spend more time here!

I love learning with Rio and Learn. I have been studying for almost two months now and I feel so much more confident speaking in Portuguese. I have tried lots of different ways to learn and this is by far the best. I have been doing classes at home online so it has fitted in really well with my work life too. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to learn Portuguese. :)

I had 12 weeks of online Portuguese classes in group (10 hours per week) with them last year (from level 0), and right now I restarted it again because I just love the teachers there and the way they teach the language. The school focuses on oral communication and the classes are never boring. You will make rapid progress and get to know really cool people. Just after 8 weeks of study this year, I am already speaking portuguese fluently. Highly recommended!

If you are interested in the group online classes with this school, proceed carefully. I recently signed up for three weeks of the online intensive course, which meets for two hours every day. I enjoyed the first two weeks of class and felt that the teachers were friendly and that the class was reasonably entertainting (although I didn't see anything particularly novel about their approach to teaching - it was mostly just explanation and practice exercises). At the end of the third week, I got placed into a different group because the other two people in my group stopped taking classes. When I looked at the material for the upcoming week, I noticed that we had gone back to the very beginning with lessons on the Portuguese alphabet, basic expressions like 'I don't understand', and greetings. Having just had 20 hours of class, this did not make sense. When I emailed the school to inquire, they did not have a satisfactory answer and simply told me that I hadn't seen the material before. While this was technically true because I had not covered the content with them, in terms of the level of content, their answer did not make any sense. The school advertises its flexible weekly groupings that supposedly allow one to advance at one's own pace, but it seems fairly obvious that this is a misrepresentation. They had one beginner's group in my chosen time slot and shoe-horned everyone in the general beginner level into it, regardless of previous knowledge. This is not a very effective way to run language classes. I asked to switch to private classes instead and to have my payment be transferred to cover them but they ignored the request and have simply kept my money although I did not attend any classes in the last week. Lastly, when I tried to join the class on the first day of the last week just to check in, the teacher for some unexplained reason did not authorize my entry into the class, despite the fact that I tried for 15 minutes and logged in multiple times. I was later told that I had to make up the class during another time slot during the same week, which wasn't particularly accommodating given that the mistake was not mine. And given the small number of students in the class, it's hard to understand why the teacher didn't allow me to enter the online class anyway.

In short, while the classes themselves were ok, the management and organization were not and I cannot recommend the school for group online classes.

I'm currently busy with a 12 week online group course and I can honestly say that I am very pleased with the outcome so far. The teachers are friendly and funny but still extremely professional. Rio & Learn really make sure that their students are satisfied with the lessons. I would recommend this school to anyone that wants to learn Brazilian Portuguese. Hopefully in the near future I can do a course in Rio!

I have been at Rio&Learn doing private lessons for about a month now. I’m a beginner in portuguese, but I’ve spent a lot of time at other language schools in the past while learning chinese, so I can say confidently that Rio&Learn is an excellent school which is run very professionally. The teachers are friendly, encouraging, and knowledgeable, and the school make a big effort to solicit feedback on ways to improve from the students (they request feedback after every day of class, and the teachers meet once a week to discuss). The RioLive activities are also an incredible opportunity to get out and use portuguese in the real world, and it’s just amazing that they do these activities every day. I’m very thankful to be here and highly recommend it to anyone else looking for a school in Rio.

I spent 1 month at the school and have had nothing but great experiences. Not only did I become conversational in Portuguese in a matter of weeks but gained a deeper understanding of Brazilian culture. The after class activities titled RioLive allows students to practice recently learned grammar while being immersed in Rio De Janeiro culture. If you are hesitant about choosing a Portuguese School here in Rio, look no further! Rio & Learn is a professional, friendly, and motivating school that caters to all students. Very satisfied with my choice of embarking my Portuguese journey with them,

I would like to point out that the school is doing a great job and all teachers are very experienced. I have been doing an online Portuguese language course over the last three months and my progress is amazing. I knew some Portuguese before but since I started the course, I improved my Portuguese very rapidly and I feel very confident now.

Oi gente (hello people) :)

If you are interested in studying Portuguese and experiencing Brazilian culture whether you are a beginner or at advanced level, this is the school for you. The classes are limited to 6 students per class and the content is well thought out to make learning fun and interesting. The school also offers daily activities to all of the tourist attractions in Rio, so you have the opportunity to learn Portuguese while experiencing this marvellous city. It’s so easy to meet other like minded individuals of all ages and you are encouraged to always speak Portuguese at the school and on the daily activities.

All of the professors are highly skilled and knowledgable and make learning Portuguese a fun experience (Diogo is fantastic)

The school is located in an amazing location in Copacabana only a few steps from the world famous Copacabana beach.

Unfortunately due to COVID the classes have been moved online, but these are very good and a great way to continue with Portuguese learning especially while you are quarantined.

If you are planning to study Portuguese wherever you are in the world, look no further Rio and Learn is the school for you.

Abraços (hugs)
