The story of Vila Brasil
In 2012, there were no specialized schools for teaching Portuguese to foreigners in Brasilia. Therefore, colleagues Ana Luíza Gabatteli e Ailana Cota, both Portuguese teachers for foreigners at the time, decided to face the challenge of opening the first school in Brasilia.
In the beginning, there were just over 10 students, mostly diplomats and embassies’ military attachés. Over the years, thanks to our professionalism, the student demand has grown as well as our teaching staff.
Nowadays, Vila Brasil is more than a Portuguese school, it is a place where qualified and passionate teachers work to spread Brazil’s language and culture to the world; a place where every year there are students developing their proficiency in Portuguese for life; where college students can participate in teaching internship programs and learn from more experienced professionals; where soon-to-be teachers and teachers of Portuguese for foreigners can attend to online training courses to improve their teaching practices; where immigrants and refugees study Portuguese for free and, receive emotional support to restart their lives with dignity.
