intensive course of portuguese language

by unafarfalla

Hello, I'll be coming to World Urban Forum V in Rio at the end of March but have a week free prior to the conference. I'd like to take up an intensive course of portuguese language,possibly in some nice beach area,not very expensive, can be around Rio or in Floripa. I'd also really like to get in touch with people from brazil universities attending the Forum. Thank you for any help!:)

A son-in-law brother lives in Florida and as a brazilian may point you some nice hints to learn portuguese. The portuguese language in Brazil is not the same spoken in Portugal. So be wise in searching the right teacher.

Use the e-mail flavionavarro1@hotmail.com, or, gabbievfh@gmail.com to get in touch with Flavio Navarro/Gabriela (husband/wife). Both got background in english at College...

PUC is the best university in Brazil for portuguese intensive course.

I think as you have one week prior to the conference,
it would be nice to stay in Rio....'cause Florianopolis
is much more south of Brazil.

Travel Tips for Rio de Janeiro

To cherish for Ever

by Bert_Pearson

The spectacular 360 degree-view on Corcovado. A jeep ride in Tijuca Forest
And Excursions to Tropical Islands and Costa Verde. I enjoyed the Beaches at night, where activities seem to never end: little snack spots, lovers walking hand in hand, cariocas playing guitar, singing and dancing and the pleasure of letting the waves come to caress your feet while sitting on the warm sandy beach. And in the background the sound of discos and the spectacular lighted city.

Rio de Janeiro is a perfect...

by bichara

Rio de Janeiro is a perfect pleasure city. It is built along the coast and doesn't go to far into the interior! Just very spread out along a massive coast line of beautiful beaches! One of its fascinating features is that it's virtually impossible to get lost in this metropolis despite its population of nearly 10 million!

A FAMOUS CORNER IN COPACABANA

by RafaelTheSecond

The district of Copacabana is so big that it is bigger than many CITIES in Brazil. More than 300.000 people live in Copacabana, and right in the middle fo the beach, corner with the second more popular avenue called Avenida Nossa Senhora de Copacabana with Siqueira Camps Street (Rua) is the nervous point of the neighborhood.

Siqueira Campos is the street where the last subway station is located, so all people use it to come to Copa, so the most important city's stores are there, and this is the place where you can go shopping and for sure you will find great bargains.

Copacabana has 4 big avenues which cross through all over the neighborhood.

AVENIDA ATLANTICA - The beach Avenue
AVENIDA NOSSA SENHORA DE COPACABANA - The second big paralell Avenue
AVENIDA BARATA RIBEIRO - The third paralell Avenue
AVENIDA TONELERO

The main corners where the cool stores are:

SIQUEIRA CAMPOS STREET
FIGUEIREDO MAGALHAES STREET
SANTA CLARA STREET Maybe if you are too lazy to go to the shopping centers, you can just stay in Copacabana, you have lots of options in the back streets, and it just a matter of get your feet prepared and explore it.

Main stores are C&A, Lojas Americanas, Casa e Video and if you are into buying shoes...I would recommend you Paquetá and Disantini.

CD Stores, corner with Barata Ribeiro and Santa Clara, the name of the place is MODERN SOUND.

Life's a beach

by acemj

This is Rio! The beach is a huge part of life here, so be sure to spend some time just hanging out and observing the locals as they savor their city. The beaches here are simply breathtaking with islands dotting the horizon, beautiful people, pale sand and mountains all around. What more could you want?

Buses & strange people

by Groentje

Every now and then, people get on the bus and hand out things to sell. It's completely up to you to buy anything from them, but I don't see the real danger in doing so.
Some will say that they do it to see where you keep your change, but not all of them are the thugs many would want them to be. Often they are just homeless people, or people with a second living.
Things being sold can range from batteries (which are worth next to nothing by the way) to just plain old candy, or an icon from a holy person.
I find it's the only way you can help these people, so I gave some...
