Meet the history and philosophy behind The Language Club
The Language Club is a language school that has been teaching Portuguese as a foreign language at all levels since 1993. In addition to its quality, the school also stands out for its privileged location in Florianópolis, south of Brazil, a safe city that has beautiful landscapes and high HDI, one of the most sought after places to live in Brazil – the perfect place to learn Portuguese!
We have taught Portuguese to foreign students from different ages and backgrounds, including university students, diplomats, businessmen and women. We also organize courses (on demand) according to the needs of NGOs, universities (summer courses) and international organizations.
The Language Club building has currently 9 classrooms on 2 floors, including 4 rooms with interactive whiteboards. All classrooms are equipped with air conditioning and sound systems. There is also a library available for the students. The school is a wi-fi zone, allowing students to use their own notebooks and smart technology. In addition, there are restroom facilities, a coffee lounge and a beautiful garden.
I recommend studying at TLC to anyone who is looking for an intensive Portuguese language learning experience in an idyllic setting in the south of Brazil.
The coffee breaks were very welcoming, not just to grab a hot cup of coffee but to practice small talk in Portuguese and to meet other students from Brazil and abroad.
The students were everything from backpackers to Ambassadors, who shared a common aim – to learn Portuguese. I found this mixture very encouraging, and learned a lot more than only Portuguese during my time at TLC.
The entire staff was attentive to my educational needs.

The school is located in Lagoa da Conceição neighborhood, a privileged location in Florianópolis, south of Brazil, a safe city that has beautiful landscapes and high HDI – the perfect place to learn Portuguese! Florianópolis has been attracting thousands of foreign visitors in recent years because of its natural beauty, high standards of living and safety. Lagoa da Conceição is one of the hippest neighborhoods in one of the hippest cities in all of Brazil.
The school, in the very center of Lagoa, is close to shops, a mall, cafes and the main bus station in the area, but it is still safe and quiet. It is about 15 minutes by bus from Praia Mole, Joaquina and Campeche, 3 very famous beaches in the island. The environment, open to all cultural backgrounds, is perfect for social interaction and language practice for all levels.
