SPECIAL PROGRAMS In our opinion, learning a language is intrinsically tied to a student’s involvement in the daily life of people, customs, and culture. In keeping with our vision of learning, and in order to provide a complete experience, our classes are adapted to the needs of students, and are tied to local daily life and colloquial language through material exclusively developed for the instruction of Portuguese for foreigners, and courses that involve Brazilian culture as a whole. Here at Olinda Portuguese Language School, we have courses that bring together Portuguese and music (special courses on percussion instruments), soccer, dance, health, and volunteering. It is important to us that students come to grasp the full reality of Brazilian life, and understand how we as Brazilians live and how we relate to the world around us. Portuguese and Soccer Our Portuguese and Soccer ( football to us) course lasts 4 weeks. The student will have afternoon soccer practice twice a week with a professional coach. Depending on their capabilities, the student will be invited to play with a team of the coaches selection. Our soccer teacher is graduated in physical education. He is a personal trainer and coaches a local team here in Olinda. He keeps a project for underprivileged children involving the sport to teach discipline and focus. He is your classic Brazilian, crazy about soccer. Portuguese and Music Our popular music course runs for a minimum of four weeks. In addition to the 4 Portuguese lessons in the morning the students will have percussion classes in the afternoon twice a week. We will arrange for jam sessions with local bands and depending on the ability of the student, they might be invited to play live with the Band. Unfortunately during Carnaval local Bands are fully booked so arranging spare time with them may be difficult. This course is made with the support of local artists, their vast knowledge in the field of Brazilian Folk music makes them excellent teachers. They have bands, do workshops and leads 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. Portuguese and Photography Our Portuguese and Photography course is a 4-week program. Photography: Our photography teacher has worked as a photographer since 1989, when she chose to follow in her father’s 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. Students need to supply their own equipment. Preparation for “Celpe-Bras” Exam This course is exclusively given to prepare students for the “Celpe-Bras” exam (The Certificate of Proficiency in the Portuguese Language for Foreigners), a certification that is given to foreigners who perform well on the exam developed by the Ministry of Education. The student will have classes every afternoon. Classes will be private, and will contain 2 50-minute lessons. In total, the student will have 10 classes per week. This course aims to prepare students by administering activities developed according to the methodology of the exam itself. The “Celpe-Bras” is accepted internationally by firms and institutions of higher education as proof of competency in Portuguese, and in Brazil, is required by universities for entrance in both undergraduate and graduate programs. This exam is given in Brazil and other countries with the support of the Minister for Foreign Relations. Here in Pernambuco, the exam is administered at UFPE—Universidade Federal de Pernambuco. Enrollment in this course does not qualify students to participate in the Celpe-Bras exam, and before you enroll here, you should note exam information and requirements, such as the payment of fees. We can help you with your registration. Walking & Talking This course is perfect for lovers of Brazilian Culture and the tourist who wants to learn enough Portuguese to understand and be understood at Hotels, restaurants, public transport, taxis, markets, museums, beaches and more.

Businesses and educational institutions use it to determine employment and study placements. The exam is offered twice a year: April and October. Fast Forward Language Institute's exam preparation classes focus on developing the student’s abilities in all areas tested. Other important factors that greatly influence any given student’s performance are time spent in intimate contact with Brazilian culture and the breadth of this experience. Materials used: Apart from our carefully selected standard teaching materials, Fast Forward Language Institute boasts a large variety of modern teaching resources and equipment. Computers, CD's and videos are among the aids used in everyday courses as well as sessions devoted to culture, regional studies, literature and business. Use of the multimedia library and our computer facilities is a good way of adding to and reinforcing the skills acquired from class work. A word on methodology: 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. Many activities outside of school are created with this idea of oral communication as well. Tailored Programs in Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro Fast Forward builds tailored programs to match the specific development objectives of students in Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro.
