You probably know about the big fireworks show in Rio de Janeiro’s New Year’s Eve celebration. But do you know how else we celebrate the New Year in Brazil?
We have several New Year’s Eve traditions and superstitions to welcome the new year in Brazil and to attract luck and prosperity in the new year.
At Street Smart Brazil we want you to develop not only language fluency, but also your cultural fluency so you can navigate the Brazilian culture with confidence. We want you to learn about Brazil beyond stereotypes and be able to see what can easily get lost between the lines.
In the words of our client Ken:
I highly recommend Street Smart Brazil. They’ll have you speaking Portuguese in surprisingly little time and you’ll learn a lot about Brazil and its people and culture.– Ken
