5. Portuguese Course for Spanish speakers

Spanish Speakers, that have a basic level of Portuguese, have at BrazilLink class that is composed of students who speak Spanish. We design a special course in which we intensify the training of pronunciation, reading and of the contrasting grammatical aspects between Portuguese and Spanish.
