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

All school 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, located in São Paulo, the financial centre of the country, Fast Forward offers a unique and captivating experience in the cultural reality of the Portuguese language.

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 are more than happy to offer extra information as well as testimonials from past students.

We look forward to welcoming you in person. 

Sao Paulo 

The biggest city in South America and one of the three largest in the world, São Paulo is considered one of Latin America's most important financial centers. It is the industrial center of Brazil, responsible for over 30% of Brazil's annual GNP, and headquarters to the majority of Brazilian and multinational corporations.

Strong industrial development and cultural diversity have provided São Paulo with the largest, most cultured and educated middle class in Brazil.

São Paulo can be an intimidating place, but if you like big cities, it offers the excitement and nightlife of one of the world's most dynamic. Attractions include the baroque Teatro Municipal, Niemeyer's Edifício Copan, the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) and the 16th-century Pátio do Colégio.

The school is located in the upscale neighborhood of Jardins, blocks away from Paulista Avenue, Sao Paulo’s financial center.

The tree-lined streets around the school are full of restaurants, neighborhood bars and nightclubs, as well as parks, with something for everyone and easy to explore.

Accommodations 

You have a choice of host family, apartment, student residence or hotel accommodations the whole year round.

Host families are the most frequently chosen housing option. Fast Forward Language Institute ensures that each family offers a quality living situation and respects each student’s wishes as much as possible in the family selection.

The host families themselves are experienced and enthusiastic participants in the student’s life. When it comes to immersion into life, language, etc., living with a host family is by far the most intense. It truly is an experience not to be passed up.
