Streetsmart Brazil helped me to attain a Celpe Bras proficiency rating of advanced intermediate. Not only have I improved my reading and writing skills, I can speak more fluently on a wide range of topics and situations. The Street Smart Brazil materials are an amazing blend of writing, reading, audio and video lessons so the student receives Brazilian Portuguese immersion training in the comfort of their home. I have had classes while in Houston, Caracas, and Lagos while my instructor is based in Brazil. My expectations have been exceeded by Street Smart Brazil. Further, my instructor is outstanding, an extremely qualified person with tertiary plus education and with a great passion for imparting the nuances of her native tongue! I have bought every possible book, DVD, CD on Portuguese, but SSB undoubtedly has taken my Portuguese to a another level!
