Our main partner is the Caminhos Language Centre, the largest and most exciting Portuguese Language School in Brazil. Like Eco Caminhos, the school operates as a “social business” for its students, the children of the nearby community, and its staff: An organisation that does not try to exploit anyone, but, instead, is looking to offer high quality to all stakeholders. The Caminhos Language centre is situated in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, where it offers high quality Portuguese courses. What makes the school special are its free daily activities and the fact that the school has it’s own on-site social programme for local children. Part of the fee you pay for your Portuguese lessons goes directly to the children of Rio de Janeiro.


Ranked 1st on TripAdvisor by its students 

Caminhos Language Centre has a well established homestay programme in Rio de Janeiro, which allows students to stay with local Brazilian families. The students are submerged in Brazilian culture and get a chance to practice their Portuguese in real life. The school offers students a complete Rio de Janeiro experience without overcharging. The Portuguese group courses in Brazil already start from 22 Reals (+/- 6,5 euros) per hour; the best price in town. Caminhos Language Centre can offer these sharp prices because it has grown to become the largest school in Rio and even in Brazil.
