Host family

Living with a Brazilian host family whilst you learn Portuguese in Sao Paulo is the most popular accommodation option, because it allows you to practice the Portuguese in real-life situations. You can stay in a single room with half board (breakfast and dinner). Double rooms can only be reserved for those people travelling together. In each family there is no more than one person of the same maternal language.
