Visit: Plaza Mauá complex (Plaza, Museum of Art of Rio—MAR---and Museum of Tomorrow) and Cemitério dos Pretos Novos, a black history museum.
This area of ​​the city is a good representation of the way Rio has tried to reinvent itself as an "entrepreneurial city" (a concept put forth by David Harvey) and how this construction of a "new city" does not often dialogue with the history of the place and its symbols. Therefore, we will visit in the same day, from these three spaces: MAR, Museum of Tomorrow and Cemitério dos Pretos Novos.

"It was perfect! Fala Brasil was professional, fun and just what we needed!"

Chris Reynolds

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Fala Brasil. From the very first day, our group loved the teachers, the teaching methods, the lessons, all of it was done really well. The actual school was great too! It is a very warm and clean place. We always enjoyed going to the school and interacting with the teachers. They took us for a lesson on the beach, in the city and at a restaurant. It was one of the major highlights of our time in Rio. Highly recommended.

"A great immersion in Brazilian culture with dedicated teachers"

Hélène Fargues

I arrived in Brazil in September 2015 and started to learn Portuguese at Fala Brasil. I studied there for six months, and now I am practically fluent! The school is located in a very calm street, and the classes took place in a cosy luminous house. I had several teachers, and liked each one of them. All of them have a different backgrounds that make the conversations very interesting. It's a nice school, where the people are friendly and welcome you with open arms. The teachers try to make their best to help you improve your Portuguese. I would really recommend it!
