Corporate Portuguese

The Fala Brasil Portuguese Academy specialises in teaching Corporate Portuguese for people who are interested in conducting business in Portuguese speaking countries.

Doing Business face-to-face in a new country for the first time isn’t always easy due to the language barrier and cultural differences. Many people who are transferred to Brazil from abroad can find the new environment challenging, affecting confidence and work performance.

To that end, in addition to providing your staff with individualised language classes, our courses also include lessons in Brazilian business culture to ensure that your people not only speak the right language for your clients, they also know how to use it culturally in the right way to foster higher trust and form stronger business relationships.

Fala Brasil offers a comprehensive programme with SURVIVAL PORTUGUESE for your fist days in Brasil, Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Fluent levels.

The language and culture teaching is carried out bearing in mind the linguistic and cultural needs of the learner at each stage of their integration into their new country.

The course starts with introductory classes for recent arrivals; with vocabulary, simple grammatical structures and specific knowledge that provide survival skills in both personal and professional life.

  • Survival Portuguese is a set of introductory classes for recent arrivals; with vocabulary, simple grammatical structures and specific knowledge that provide survival Portuguese for both personal and professional life.
  • The basic level expands upon the introductory classes. The focus is on speaking effectively in various situations and increasing competency in day-to-day activities.
  • At intermediate level the learner has already managed to begin communicating and interacting. What they need now is to develop their communication skills by exploring new vocabulary and better understanding their environment. We help students to  comprehend local customs that can act as cultural barriers when not properly understood
  • In the advanced level the learner can already communicate with ease and demonstrates good understanding. It’s now necessary to refine their linguistic skills by looking at new ways of speaking and understanding, and to deepen their cultural understanding yet further.

We want to mention our satisfaction with our partnership with Fala Brasil that has been of paramount importance for the success of the COPPEAD Exchange Program.

We have witnessed the importance that the “Beginner Portuguese” course has been for our students during their stay. An important part of the course is the practical lessons and the exchange of experiences they have, making direct contact with the Brazilian culture possible. Also to mention, the pleasant environment, dynamic and effective method of learning and friendliness of teachers.

When the exchange students arrive at COPPEAD, after a week of classes at Fala Brasil, we notice the growth from their first 15 hours of classes. The focus on neurolinguistics adopted by the school makes learning effective for all participants.

We thank Fala Brasil and all its staff for providing our students with this unforgettable experience with the Brazilian language and culture.”

Andreia Giovannetti, Director of the COPPEAD Exchange Program

I never had so much fun learning a new language. I became I radio announcer, a cook, a samba dancer, a samba singer, a traveler and much more. During my lessons and all the activities organized by Fala Brasil, I had the opportunity to meet many interesting people and make good friends. Marcelle and her team have the love, the passion and the necessary craziness that helped me discover Rio and Brasil exactly as I wanted.

Fala Brasil is not just about learning a new language, It can be a true inspiration and motivation for whatever you are seeking for

Being in a unknown country and expressing yourself through an idiom that is not your mother language can be exhausting. However, Fala Brasil is making sure that my team learns Portuguese and Brazilian culture in a creative, fun and innovative way.

Students learn vocabulary and theory in class, and them experience what was learned in cultural events. A more than perfect combination! As a psychologist I believe that this is Fala Brasil’s great difference among others language courses.

Antonia Aguiar . Human Resources . OMEGA

My experience with Falabrasil was excellent. I worked for 4 months in Rio de Janeiro and it’s been very helpful to do private lessons. They helped me learn in a quick and a fun manner. The lessons are experiences such as; talking to people on the street, attending dinners, trips in different neighborhoods. I highly recommend it!

Alessandra Neri . Marketing Manager .  Action AID

FalaBrasil has very good teachers. They work with a neuro-linguistic method in which they make you repeat certain phrases or verbs until you know them instead of having to think about it first. It was very helpful. The enthusiasm of the teachers makes it a pleasure to go to class and practice Portuguese. I would recommend FalaBrasil to everyone!

Floor Boon. International Journalist 

Fala Brasil has been so much more than a language school for me.
It’s been a home, a network, and a group of friends.
They have innovative and casual methodologies, as well as a caring and fun approach.
Thanks to them, I progressed from not speaking a word to giving talks in Portuguese in six months!
Very highly recommended!

Alexandra Sturtza

Fala Brasil was really the best environment to learn Portuguese. The place is gorgeous, and makes you directly confortable. The teacher was amazing, always smiling and willing to teach us more. I can say that in one week of classe, I am now able to communicate with the Brazilians, it is very basic but definitely compulsory when we want to live or travel here.
I definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy by learning and to amazingly improve his level of Portuguese.

Joanne Kiamé, Coppead student

I discovered Fala Brasil completely by accident, but i am so happy i did!. The week of lessons i received from Marcelle and her team made my experience of learning Portuguese enriching and rewarding. The professional yet fun methods they employ keep you on your toes by challenging your thought processes and intellect. During my week i had 3 different teachers with 3 different accents which made for an entirely realistic situation come everyday life here in Rio. Adopting similar approaches all my teachers were excellent and dynamic. My understanding of portuguese has increased ten fold thanks to my time at Fala Brasil. I can’t recommend this awesome place enough and hope to return for more lessons on my next trip to Rio. Muito obrigado equipe Fala Brasil!.
