Un soggiorno linguistico è sempre un'esperienza magnifica e arricchente, indipendentemente dal paese e dalla lingua.Per me il Brasile è stato il primo paese in via di sviluppo che ho visitato, mi ha lasciato perciò un segno ancora più importante. Scuola piccola e ben organizzata, studenti prevalentemente europei più qualche statunitense.Docenti simpatici e pazienti, aule piccole con aria condizionata. Wireless che va e viene ma siamo in Brasile. Accoglienza calorosa e disponibilità del personale in qualunque momento. Come già detto i docenti sono sempre molto disponibili e siccome la classe è così piccola c'è più possibilità di "personalizzare" un pochino le lezioni a seconda dei desideri e dei bisogni degli studenti.

Salvador est une ville très festive avec des habitants souriant et qui aiment aider. Les policiers sont très présents dans tout les lieux touristiques mais il faut faire très attention en dehors. Seul point négatif, la non propreté de la ville. L'école est située très près de la plage, dans un quartier assez calme. Les étudiants viennent de pays variés et ont plaisirs à converser avec les nouveaux étudiants. Facile de se faire quelques amis. Les professeurs sont sympathique et surtout à l'écoute. Nous n'apprenions pas simplement la langue, nous discutions aussi sur différents sujets : la politique, les coutumes, l'économie, etc. J'étais traité comme un membre de la famille, elle s'inquiétait pour ma sécurité lorsque je sortais seul.

Dialogo Salvador da Bahia
Duration: 16 weeks

I feel great. Everything was beautiful and I am happy I could live this experience. My host family was very nice, attentive and generous as regards meals. They were very helpful too and always ready to assist. I didn’t have any trouble with any members of my host family. The course met my expectations, as the teachers were excellent and the lessons, very effective. Besides, the school staff is very attentive to students’ requests and ensures the high quality of the services provided.
