This course is made with the support of local artists; their vast knowledge in the field of Brazilian Folk music makes them excellents teachers. They have bands, do workshops and lead social projects with the children of Olinda. They know everybody in the live music scene here in Olinda, so whatever your instrument of choice is, they can find a band for you to play with.

Our teacher has worked as a photographer since 1989, when she chose to follow in her fathers footsteps. Students will join her at her studio and be taught the basics of professional photography before going on site, taking shots of Olinda & Recife.

Students will learn the basics of professional photography, conduct photo shoots around Olinda & Recife and visit exhibitions of local photographers.

  • Colin Olsen Portuguese + Activities in Olinda - 2015

    I spent two weeks in June 2015 at Norman's school. Without a doubt it was a great experience. You will have an opportunity to speak Portuguese every day at the school and I strongly recommend avoiding your native language while you're there. If you want to speak Portuguese fluently one day, I also recommend staying longer than two weeks! Norman and the teachers are very nice and they want you to learn. And Olinda! What a city! History, beaches, Carnival, and a rich Brazilian culture. I will day
