Our Team

FALA AÍ is a Portuguese course for foreigners created by Brazilians, the only one in Rio. Igor Felizzola is the creator, after working for two years teaching at another school, he decided to open his own school and invited his best friend Filipe to be his partner in this endeavor. Together and in the midst of a political crisis, we built without much resources and by giving classes in public places or at the student house, we managed to create a network of student friends who helped us a lot by referring us to new students.

FALA AÍ is more than a course, it is a community. And after a lot of work and engagement by our students, today we are the best and most sought after Portuguese course for foreigners in Brazil.

All of our teachers are trained and specialized in teaching Portuguese as a foreign language at the best public universities in Brazil.
