We are an award winning, woman-owned language school in Brasilia that has been teaching professionals and students since 2012. We like to be seen as a community. Besides Portuguese classes for foreigners, we promote English, Spanish and French courses. We also offer empathetic training for teachers and opportunities for sharing ideas and experiences.
Our positioning is close to the values of conscious capitalism: sensitivity, affection, and creativity, thus reflecting the personality of our founder Ana Luíza Gabatteli, who believes that language has the power to bring together, welcome and transform society.
In addition to Portuguese classes for foreigners, we offer English, Spanish, and French courses, empathetic training courses for teachers, and opportunities for discussions and sharing ideas, always with a focus on inclusive and diverse communication.
Portuguese for foreigners
We are passionate about teaching our language and Brazilian culture, welcoming our foreign students with personalized and flexible classes. Our Portuguese courses for foreigners are our best-known courses with students from more than 20 countries and partnerships with embassies and international organizations.
We believe that language is an agent of social transformation: from it we communicate better, learn more about new cultures and share ideas. Through English, Spanish and French courses, we encourage our students to become global citizens and develop cross-cultural competence, and thus take Brazil to the world!
We are a community. We welcome, share, and believe that language can transform, include, and help our society to be more just and open to diversity. In our Welcoming Portuguese program, we teach free Portuguese to refugees and migrants in situations of social vulnerability to help them restart their lives in Brazil with dignity.
Our cultural immersion allows foreigners to live with a family in Brasilia, take intensive courses, travel, and immerse themselves in Brazilian culture! Our programs are personalized, and the host families make our students feel at home!
Zum Zum Zum
Zum Zum Zum is a project that promotes informal chats between Portuguese as a second language teachers. The goal is for teachers to exchange experiences about their teaching practice, ideas for activities and/or projects. It is a free space for conversation and collaborative growth!
