    We believe it is important to vary the teaching methods used in our Portuguese courses as much as possible. Every group and person is different, thus our teachers use an individual approach and flexibly adapt their teaching methods to the students' respective learning needs.

    We supplement various course books with original teaching materials such as newspaper and magazine articles, audio/visual materials and activities inside and outside of class.

    One of our fundamental principles is to ensure a maximum of spoken communication. Students are encouraged to practice spoken Portuguese in real-life situations, with the teacher, and with other participants, in pairs and groups. 30 group classes per week

Date School Established : 1991

School(Business) Permit No. : 0678788000174

Since 1991, Fast Forward Language Institute has been devoted to providing high quality and personalized instruction in Portuguese for foreigners.

All of our teachers are native speakers, university graduates and trained in Fast Forward’s direct approach to language teaching. We work with our own teaching methods, aimed at students’ total cultural immersion.

In Brazil, Fast Forward currently has locations in São Paulo, offering a unique and captivating experience in the cultural reality of the Portuguese language today.

Language lessons at Fast Forward focus on communication; beyond grammar books and written exercises, our professors include a variety of oral and listening elements with up-to-date technology to stimulate a comprehensive understanding of the Portuguese language.

Students are encouraged to interact with their classmates, their professors and the entire staff here at Fast Forward. Our professors also dedicate their creativity and time to the organization of various activities during the students' free time and weekends.

Enthusiastic and experienced host families also contribute greatly to the students' well being during their stay (see the accommodation section).

We work hard to create an intimate atmosphere both during and after class time that welcomes, inspires, challenges and responds to each individual student.

We look forward to welcoming you in person soon!
