As a language lover, I have learned multiple foreign languages through multiple sources and media. I must say that Street Smart Brazil is absolutely the best language program that I have encountered. I wish there would be programs for other languages that are just as good as Street Smart Brazil.

My instructor understands exactly where I stand, and she adjusts our materials accordingly. In just a few months, I was able to learn materials that I would never have been able to master in a few years in college or some other classes. Before signing up for Street Smart Brazil, I thought that Portuguese was a mysterious Romance language that was too difficult to even read, but now I have really fallen in love with the beauty of the language.

Other than the linguistical aspect, I have learned so much about Brazilian culture and way of life. I barely knew anything about Brazil and assumed that it must be similar to other South American countries and Western nations in general. However, now I know just how unique its culture is: all the way from food to music. Now I listen almost solely to Brazilian music, which covers a much wider range of genres than one might expect.

I can also have meaningful conversations with Brazilians, who really appreciate it when someone shows interest in their language and culture.
