The Department of Letters of the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) proudly offers its program of Portuguese for Foreigners. The Portuguese language courses are designed to develop the students' ability to understand and use both spoken and written Portuguese, so as to allow for communication. Our courses are targeted at people of different nationalities who are interested in learning Portuguese. All of our experienced teachers are highly qualified in the teaching of foreign languages and will ensure that the lessons are lively and that all the participants are involved. Classes have a limited number of students to allow for a better learning environment. The intensive course will be held in the Gavea Campus, on R. Marquês de São Vicente, 225 - Casa XV - Gávea/ RJ.
