"Great and effective classes with amazing and friendly teachers and staff"

Jade Corenthin

I feel like for the location if you are not used to using maps or if you get lost or something it can be very hard to find. I personally did not have a hard time but i did almost get lost. Also all the teachers are great, i really like the fact that we switched every 2 weeks, it enabled us to really get to learn in different ways and also meet with the rest of the staff. Also the facilities are great but I feel like the other house where there is no reception should be renovated or decorated more, to make it look a bit more welcoming.
As for the activities, i feel like it was a bit chaotic and badly organized at times. I know it may be repetitive for the teachers to have to do the same things over and over, but as a student coming to this new city and wanting to explore, i feel like we really didn't get much information.
We did a lot of museums, but it gets very very repetitive even if the type of the museum is different. And i had a friend who wanted to go to the museo do futbol but couldn't because the teacher in the end wasn't able to because it had been forecasted that it was going to rain so he made other plans. I feel like the teachers should be prepared to do the trip even if the day before it said that it would rain.
Also if they could give locations where we can get more touristic information like that if the student misses a trip or something he knows a place where to find more information about the city.
As for housing, it was good considering that i got taken care of and from what i gathered I got one of the better families.
I also do not know how many of the students who come here end up volunteering or doing the other programs proposed by the school but it would be great if everything was settled before i arrived to sao paulo, even if the other program is a month later, because I lost a week of "work" because things had to be organised and settled. The offers that were found for me were amazing but I just wish it had been organized better.

"Disappointing"

Raul de la Torre

I only stayed for a week at the school and my impression was negative: too expensive, poor quality facilities, poor activities, bad organisation and cold welcome.
Classes: hours of classes aren't respected. Breaks are much longer than they should be. I paid for a 20 hours course but I don't think I did more than 15.
Teachers: I don't remember her name but she was good. She was the best thing at the school.
Location: very good
Facilities: quite poor. Rooms are very cold, tables aren't clean and they don't have equipment to watch videos or listening audio. Toilets aren't very clean either.
Activities: very basic. I spent two weeks in another school in Salvador de Bahia with activities much more interesting.
Welcome: the first day, I stayed almost one hour waiting until someone from the school talked to me. After doing the level test, they sent me directly to the beginners group. No one checked the results of my test. I had to talk to the coordinator and then they sent me to one of the most advanced groups.
Housing: I don't know. I rented a studio by myself.

Compared with other schools, Fast Forward isn't worth it.

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.

Breakfast or half board is included (evening meal 6 to 8 p.m.).

You are issued your own front door key.

There is weekly cleaning of your room; bed linen is changed every 2 weeks; bed linen is provided, please bring your own towels.

Koulun sijainti

Etelä-Amerikan suurin kaupunki ja yksi maailman kolmanneksi suurimmista kaupungeista, São Paulo, on yksi Latinalaisen Amerikan tärkeimmistä finanssikeskuksista. Se on Brasilian teollisuuskeskus, joka vastaa yli 30 prosentista Brasilian vuotuisesta bruttokansantuotteesta ja pääkonttori useimmille brasilialaisille ja monikansallisille yrityksille.

Vahva teollinen kehitys ja kulttuurinen monimuotoisuus ovat antaneet São Paulolle Brasilian suurimman, koulutetun keskiluokan.

São Paulo voi olla pelottava paikka, mutta jos pidät suurista kaupungeista, se tarjoaa yhden maailman dynaamisimmista kohteista. Nähtävyyksiä ovat barokki Teatro Municipal, Niemeyerin Edifício Copan, São Paulon museo ja 1600-luvun Patío do Colégio.

Koulu sijaitsee Jardinsin upeassa kaupunginosassa, korttelin päässä Sao Paulon finanssikeskuksen Paulista-kadulta.

Koulun ympärillä olevat puiden reunustamat kadut ovat täynnä ravintoloita, baareja ja yökerhoja sekä puistoja, joissa on jokaiselle jotakin ja niihin on helppo tutustua.
