Porto Alegre Here I Come!

by Victoria2005

Hey all,
i'm interested in finding a reasonably priced but well reputed school to study portuguese in Porto Alegre.

Also, what is the standard rent for a one bedroom apartment in a reasonably safe neighbourhood - i.e. close to Public Transport Links. i plan on living in Port Alegre for no less than 6 months.

is there an expat community in Porto Alegre?

Thanks in advance.

I see you looking so pretty and sporty holding your surfboard, I feel this need to warn you: Porto Alegre is a bit away from the ocean (120km). Don't know how important surf is for you, but have you consider Florianopolis? Perhaps it would be a better location.

But anyway, if you are determined to learn Portuguese in Porto Alegre you could contact the Federal University, they have Portuguese for Foreigners: www.ufrgs.br

Rental prices: I believe you'll spend at least R$650 a month in rental, taxes + communal charges (condominio) if you are looking to rent a flat on your own. If you understand a bit of Portuguese already, check this website for prices and photos: www.auxiliadorapredial.com.br

Palácio Farroupilha

by ThiagoRamos

This is Farroupilha Palace, seat of Rio Grande do Sul State Parliament, built in the 50´s. It is also located at Praça da Matriz, next to Piratini Palace.

On its sidewalls facing Rua Duque de Caxias there are some nice metal panels picturing gaúcho themes.

Sunset

by Julie_B

View of the sunset from the shoreline of the Guaíba lake is a must. Praised and imortalized by the local poets. To see this magnificent sight it's better to plan ahead - choose the right observation points and be there at the right time. In the summer time, the sunset is aproximatelly at 20:15; in autumn, 17:40; in winter, 17:30 and 18:45 in spring. Almost all of the shoreline serves as great observation points, but during winter, a great spot is from the Usina do Gasômetro.
