The study trip was excellent overall, with friendly helpful people both at the school and around the city, Brazil is a developing country and São Paulo is a business centre rather than a tourist centre. Taking those two things into account the city and country are better than you might expect. School relocated to a better location and accommodation after 4 weeks of my course. Also much closer to where I am living! Plenty of shops and choice of all sorts of restaurants in very close proximity. Everything was excellent, teachers and staff all very friendly and approachable. Approach of the school is very flexible, allowing easy tailoring of classes to individual needs. The only thing I would have liked at the start was English translations of course work, but I fully understand why that wasn't possible and, in the long run, it was probably better for me that I didn't have those.
