“What do you recommend?”
In the 20 years living and working abroad, the founders of ILC Brasil heard this question multiple times from people of various nationalities, they were never truly convinced of the answers at hand. Such recommendations were hard to make as there was no clear reference of high quality programs outside academia. Moreover, in their research, many anecdotal references were collected in which the learner indicated a certain level of frustration with the available learning methods; though all of them carried a great joy in learning how to communicate in Portuguese and getting closer to Brazil and its culture.
Facing this scenario, ILC Brasil was founded with the mission to create and offer a Portuguese language program that has the same level of quality as the best neo-latin language institutes of the world.
Opened in 2014, the “Instituto de Língua e Cultura Brasileira ILC Brasil” is more than a Brazilian Portuguese language institute. Beyond striving to offer the best learning experience, we act as a research center: putting together academic research, new technologies and innovative teaching techniques to the service of the language of Camões as it is spoken in Brazil.
