Study and Learn Portuguese Language Immersion Course: July 14 – August 8, 2014

Experience a three week immersion into the language and culture of Brazil. Join other students on a trip to Brazil to learn not only the language, but also the culture and customs of this diverse South American nation.

The students and professor will travel to Sao Paulo, Brazil and link up with counterparts, pairing up with host student families for a unique experience of engaging in service learning, visiting not-for-profit organizations as well as enjoying the rich cultural festivals and music events that Brazil has to offer. Participants will also study reading, writing and speaking of the Portuguese language from Brazilian teachers while being fully immersed in the culture.
