Our students come from all walks of life. People wanting to set up businesses in South America, couples wanting to bridge the language gap for love, amateur historians who love the culture or simply travellers wanting to really experience what it is to be in South America!
While maintaining a fun learning environment, Viva is devoted to get students to achieve linguistic efficiency through cultural immersion and active recall exercises in all 4 areas of language learning: Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing.

At Viva we love what we do. Our team of driven people have come together to provide the ultimate language experience. We love to teach and we have fun while we do it.
Viva does a really good job of varying the content of the classes, and uses lots of culturally relevant material like Brazilian songs, stories, current events, books, etc. which really helps to keep it interesting. He also does a good job of tailoring the classes to the students needs.
The Viva system ensures you always make progress, through a combination of one on one teaching, group classes, singing, prepared material and external aids such as
language Apps; he embraces a number of different techniques depending on what you respond best to to customise the learning experience.
Rather than simply trying to teach you Portuguese through wrote-learning or repetition, Viva strives to instil in you a true and proper understanding of the way in which the language works. In this way, it becomes much easier to pick up the language once you actually begin to recognise the rules of Portuguese and the differences in sentence structure when comparing Portuguese to English.
