Olinda School

Introduction

ABOUT US

The creation of Olinda School in 2010 was the result of a partnership between two Brazilians & an Australian. The former teacher, Student relationship became a business venture when they combined to build the only purpose built school for foreigners in Brazil. We are proud to present the Olinda Portuguese Language School.

We offer our students accuracy in the instruction of Portuguese. We pride ourselves on giving our students an experience that exceeds their expectations. Our attention to the individual students needs are our paramount concern. What sets us apart from other schools is the care we give to our students. Their well-being and positive feedback is what motivates us. The owners of the school live on site, our students get the answer they want, when they want it.

The city of Olinda is a historical colonial city with cobbled hilly roads and colorful houses which is popular with the artistic, creative & musical community.

UNESCO declared it a Historical site in 1982. Simply put , its a beautiful place. For those students that prefer the pulse of a big city, Recife with its beautiful beaches is just a 10-minute bus/taxi ride away.

This course takes place throughout the year, except during the first half of January and the second half of July. The course lasts a minimum of four weeks and may be extended at the discretion of the student. The course includes two weeks of intensive Portuguese classes and lectures on health addressing tropical diseases, public health, the government’s Family Health Program (PSF) and the doctor-patient relationship. The goal of this program is to engage the student and help them understand the reality of public health in Brazil. For this reason the student will conduct a survey of the most common diseases in a number of different local communities, prepare and develop prevention workshops and produce a final report listing the difficulties faced by these communities when they need to access the public health system, specifically the PSF. Students will have the opportunity to work with the Instituto Solidare in Recife. In order for students to gain a broader understanding of the reality of Brazilian public health they will also work in a small town in the interior of Pernambuco, Panelas. Upon arrival, students will be entitled to transportation from the airport to their homestay. This course is divided into two parts. Part One: In the first two weeks, students will have four 50-minute group classes of Portuguese language instruction, every morning Monday through Friday. On two afternoons, the student will take classes in Tropical Diseases, Public Health, Introduction to the Family Health Program of the Federal Government and doctor-patient relationship.... [-]
