The Street Smart Brazil Methodology
The classes are 100% in Portuguese.
During each meeting with your Street Smart Brazil Portuguese teacher, you will practice and develop your speaking skills. We use materials from previous Celpe-Bras tests together with our exclusive handouts to keep your speaking practice focused on the Celpe-Bras exam.
Following each session, you will have a writing assignment for homework. These essay exercises are based on previous Celpe-Bras exams. They use texts, audios, and videos and ask you to write about the topic, just like you will have to do in the exam. Your teacher will check your writing and help you understand how to correct mistakes and improve your writing.
Our text correction methodology follows the most modern language learning principles and techniques. The way we correct your written assignments provides great learning and allows you to improve your Portuguese.
