I'm an American English speaker, L2 Spanish, and I'm interested in doing a short-term immersion program in Brazilian Portuguese (6 weeks or less - my job won't permit more than that). I'm an absolute beginner, currently teaching myself from textbooks and the odd lesson on livemocha or myhappyplanet.com.
Does anyone have experience with a reliable, grammar-based immersion program in Brazil? Googling leads me to some shady-looking websites, and I'd prefer not to do an expensive, US-based travel program. Second-hand experience and hear-say welcome!
Obrigada in advance!
