This 6-week summer program, sponsored by the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane, caters to graduate and undergraduate students who wish to achieve a high level of Portuguese fluency through immersion in Brazilian language and culture. With language classes at the intermediate and advanced levels, it allows students to study with experienced faculty while living with local families or college students in the Sao Paulo neighborhood of Perdizes. Each participant enrolls in two Tulane credit-bearing courses organized by our partner institution CET. In their Portuguese language course, students polish their reading, writing, and conversation skills by engaging with Brazilian art, film, and literature. Meanwhile, they delve into the current cultural, social, and political landscape of Sao Paulo in “Contemporary Social Issues in Brazil,” a course co-taught in Portuguese by Tulane and CET professors. Outside of the classroom, participants can explore Sao Paulo and its surroundings through organized excursions to museums, landmarks, and historic sites, and set off on personal adventures with friends and roommates. Summer in Brazil provides the perfect opportunity to uncover the riches of one of the country’s most overlooked treasures.
