Founder Editor Tazeen Akhtar..

Islamabad - The Ambassador of Brazil, H.E. Alfredo Leoni, held a ceremony on January 29th to celebrate the end of another session of the Portuguese Language Course classes at the Embassy. The ceremony was held at the chancery and H.E. delivered certificates to 16 students. Since 2012 more than 120 students graduated.

The effort to bring Portuguese language to Pakistan is in the broader scope of educational cooperation between the two countries, which also encompasses a Program for Exchange Students in Brazil for undergraduate and graduate level.
In his speech to the students, the Ambassador highlighted the importance of such an initiative to bring the Brazilian reality closer to Pakistanis and acknowledged the effort of the students to learn a language so different than their native one. His Excellency also declared his commitment to develop the Portuguese course and educational cooperation with Pakistan.

The Portuguese course at the Embassy of Brazil in Islamabad will resume in March 2015, with basic, intermediate and advanced levels, free of charge. The duration of each level is 6 months. Classes take place at the Embassy of Brazil on Monday to Thursday. More information and applications can be made through the website of the Embassy, through the link:
