Ho trovato molto utile la sala con i pc che si può usare durante tutto il giorno fino a quando la scuola è aperta, all'estero è molto utile, io l'ho usata anche per risolvere alcune questioni che riguardano il lavoro;anche il fatto di poter stampare a scuola è stato molto utile per me;mi piaciuto anche il fatto che durante gli intervalli potevamo andare in cucina e trovare a disposizione sempre qualcosa da stuzzicare o da bere

Ganz tolle Erfahrung, Schule, Familie alles super. Bin von den Menschen in Olinda begeistert. Ganz tolle Lehrer.Ich hab unterschätzt wie Arm diese Gegend ist und leider ist es mit der Sauberkeit bei den Stränden und Strassen etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Bitte zukünftigen Schülern mitteilen, falls sie Kleider oder Schuhe die sie nicht brauchen haben, diese mitnehmen, es gibt dort leider viele Strassenkinder, denen man diese geben kann.Die Einwende dich ich hatte wurden zu meiner vollen Zufriedenheit gelöst.Besten Dank

The aim of our partner school in Olinda is to teach you Portuguese, but also provide you with a deeper insight into Brazilian culture. For this reason, it offers an exciting leisure programme, including cultural outings to Olinda and Recife, where students can visit open-air marketplaces, historical churches, museums, restaurants and bookshops, before watching a live football game. On weekdays, numerous optional activities will allow you to learn more about Brazilian music, cinema and culture, including Capoeira, which is much more than a dance style.

At the weekend, students have the opportunity to relax on beautiful beaches stretching to the horizon or explore Brazil during exciting excursions: discover Recife’s historical centre, São José’s market, Galinhas’s harbour or the beaches of Itamaracá, Gaibu, Tamandaré and Carneiros. After spending some time with the warm and joyful Brazilian people, you will come back home with only one thing in mind: going back there as soon as possible!
