Welcome to IBEC – Instituto Brasil de Educação e Cultura!
IBEC is commited to teaching Portuguese language and Brazilian culture. It aims to deepen the language and culture in the communities where it operates.
We use the intercultural approach to teach the language and our curriculum is based on the most up-to-date studies in the fields of heritage and foreign language education. We teach the variety of Portuguese spoken in Brazil and the rich Brazilian culture, with some incursions in the Portuguese culture as well, always in a caring and fun environment. Our goal is to engage students by providing an environment full of fun discoveries and quality educational support.
With five locations in the San Francisco Bay Area, we offer Portuguese classes as heritage and as foreign language for students 3 to 17 years old, all year round, as well as private and group lessons for adults. In our third year—and growing steadily—we have plans for much more in the near future.
