During the 15 years of our history, the aspect that we, BrazilLink‘s team, are most appreciated for is our students. Getting to know people from all around the world and having the experience to share our culture and our language with others is unique. We thank all our students for the opportunity of teaching all we know about our loved country and we also thank you for teaching us all about your own culture and lifestyle! Our students are the best!

Check out what some of our students think of their experience here:

The course was really well tailored to my needs. My teacher Graça was excellent; she explained concepts clearly and always had time for questions. The course material was interesting, varied and thought provoking. I enjoyed our conversations both in the lessons and in the breaks when I got to know the other students and teachers. The school also offers a series of well designed events which offer the chance for more conversation practice. Overall, I couldn’t have asked for better, I’ve improved my Portuguese so much in just four weeks.Aimee Coelho, United Kingdom

Minha experiência no curso de BrazilLink foi excelente! Eu cheguei ao Brasil conhecendo o idioma, mas não era suficiente para entender realmente e para falar fluidamente e escrever no meu trabalho. Decidi pesquisar e encontre o Instituto BrazilLink, está no lugar turístico principal da Bahia a tão só alguns metros do Farol da Barra cheio de restaurantes, barzinhos e turistas.A equipe de professores nativos do Brasil tem muita experiência em ensinar para pessoas estrangeiras, portanto já conhecem quais são as debilidades de cada falante para aprender o português e poder desenvolver-se mais rápido.Eu fiz o meu curso com o objetivo de fazer a prova do Celpe-Bras para validar o idioma. Minha professora foi Graça. Ela tem um jeito de ensinar o idioma muito prático e efetivo. Em conclusão a minha experiência foi excelente, espero que muitas pessoas possam conhecer e aproveitar essa possibilidade que tem na Bahia.” Silvio Aranguez, Argentina

Eu aprendi muito. Semana 1-6 com Graça foram um espetáculo, porque Graça está vivendo o Português. Semana 7 com Edna foi legal e semana 9 com Marcelo foi bom também. Em total: ótimo! Vou voltar!Silvia Maag, Switzerland

“I found BrazilLink Institute through word-of-mouth when I visited Salvador. The course material is well written and includes interesting cultural references about Brazil. The teachers I had (Marcelo and Edna) were amazing. I want to thank them both so much for their help! I highly recommend BrazilLink!”  Anni, Australia

A great place to learn Portuguese with excellent teachers and learning materials. They are helpful and understanding and I had the clear feeling that my teacher wanted me to learn as much as I did.” Frederik Holm, Denmark

“I enjoyed here two weeks of excellent Brazilian Portuguese classes close to marvelous beaches. Participated in some cultural excursions and I do intend to come again January next year. The language school BrazilLink is really recommendable!”  Eduard Bungartz, Germany

“I did pronunciation classes in BrazilLink and found them to be very useful. Overcoming the habits of English is hard, but BrazilLink taught me a lot of techniques to do so. Now I just have to practice! If you want to learn Portuguese or improve your level in the language, you should definitely consider BrazilLink!” Patrick Hanlon, Ireland

“Teachers are all very good, and the administration is very flexible in accommodating classes to your schedule. The school building is new and in great shape. The location is also excellent.”  Kevin Scott, United States

Graça é a melhor professora de português ever.”  Alexis Sheloun, United Kingdom

“Estava muito feliz quando comecei a estudar língua com a escola em 2012. Mas agora tendo outro nível estou ainda mais satisfeita. Muito obrigada.” Elena Stetsumina, Kaliningrado

“É a segunda vez que eu faço um curso nessa escola. É muito interessante, e a atmosfera é relax e tranquila. Obrigado!”  Adrien Bril, France

“Sou da França e fiquei em Salvador por duas semanas. Estudei na escola BrazilLink e tive aulas individuais com Dona Graça. Foi uma boa experiência, particularmente porque ela me ensinou fonética para melhorar o meu sotaque francês. Eu fortemente recomendo essa escola se você quiser aprender português!Julien Brochard, France

“Eu gostei muito de fazer aulas aqui no BrazilLink. O atendimento das pessoas aqui foi ótimo. Eu adorei estudar com vocês! Muito obrigado.” Aaron Garcia, México

“This is not just a language school- BrazilLink is a hub of passionate and well-versed professors that you will share great conversations and moments. Their classes are thought-provoking to truly experience Bahia and events are engaging where you will be able to meet and make lasting friendships with  your fellow students . It helps also, it’s located steps from the beach so you can make a friends beach date before/ after class.” Michelle Estefania Cruz, July 2016

“Is anybody interested in taking some Portuguese language classes? Well, I am here strongly recommending my school BrazilLink. They offer a variety of Portuguese lessons for specific purposes. If your goal is improving your Portughese skills and at the same time, learning great cultural aspects of Salvador, the first capital of Brazil, well, your school is BrazilLink. My teacher was the wonderful Graça Gesteira. She is a very experienced language instructor with a big heart!!”  Liliana Restrepo, Bogoda, August 2016
