Whip your academic language skills into real-world shape during a month long intensive language and culture program. Then it’s off to school as usual – only at a Brazilian university with classes in Portuguese.

- Learn Portuguese through a four-week intensive language and culture program prior to the semester, followed by semester-long language courses at various levels
- Enroll in CIEE, and Universidade Católica do Salvador (UCSal) courses
- Explore your new home through cultural and educational activities.
