Communicative Approach to Language Learning:

Photo of Intensive Portuguese Courses in Rio de Janeiro- Caminhos offers a diverse and enriching learning curriculum using the communicative approach. The communicative approach - or ‘communicative language teaching’ (CLT) - is an approach to Portuguese language teaching that places emphasis on interaction.

- Caminhos steps away from the traditional one-way communication from teacher to student. Teachers will speak the Portuguese language as much as possible during the entire course.

- Besides the fact that research has proven that this method has better results, it is simply more fun than one-way communication.

Qualified & Experienced Teachers:
Our native Brazilian teachers are all highly qualified, trained, experienced and passionate about students’ Portuguese language learning, and are therefore focussed on maximising their students' potential.

Small group classes facilitate the opportunity for teachers to focus on students' needs and create an opportunity for the student to interact.
