Academic Adventure in Brazil

Our mission: Provide quality Portuguese language programs in a professional and friendly environment to create an effective and enjoyable learning experience for all our students. Courses: Fast Forward offers group and private general language instruction, from absolute beginner to advanced levels. Portuguese Language exam preparatory courses are also available. Cultural programs are optional and available throughout the year. Upon arrival, students take a placement test to determine their level, and also decide which cultural programs they would like to participate in. Fast Forward also offers Bildungsurlaub (click) for German employees as well as University Credits for American students. A word on methodology: We believe it is important to vary teaching methods in our Portuguese courses as much as possible. Every group and person is different, thus, our teachers use an individual approach and flexibly adapt their teaching methods to students' respective learning needs. We supplement various course books with authentic teaching materials such as newspaper and magazine articles, audio-visual materials, and activities inside and outside the classroom. One of our fundamental principles is to ensure a maximum of spoken communication. You are encouraged to practice your spoken Portuguese in real-life situations, with your teacher, and with other participants, in pairs and groups. Many activities outside of school are created with this idea of oral communication as well. CULTURAL By complementing your language studies with cultural activities, you effectively integrate your classtime education with the daily reality of Brazilian life. Here are some of the programs offered by Fast Forward: Culinary Instruction in preparation and history of typical Brazilian cuisine. With influences from the Portuguese, Arabs, Africans and Indians, the heritage is deliciously varied, and the associated festivities vividly enjoyed. Rhythms and Dances Experience the variety of cultural heritage in Brazil through dance classes of samba, forró, rítmos variados, and many more. Afternoon and evening classes, in groups or solo. Capoeira Classes in the Brazilian martial art/dance considered to be an essential part of cultural heritage. Local groups lead you to both playful and serious interactions with this beautiful tradition. Wine Porto is known world-wide for the wines of its surrounding regions.
