  • Dear Global Education Office.

    I've spent the last four weeks studying abroad in Brazil, and they have been four of the best weeks in my entire life. My interest in Brazil stems from my training in capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian dance martial art, which led to me taking Portuguese 101 and applying…

    One of the coolest things we did in Rio was visiting the Mercado das Frutas, in one of the main plazas in Ipanema! The market hosted hundreds of vendors of fruit, vegetables, fish, and meat. Part of our class assignment was to bargain with the vendors and…

    My summer in Brazil was absolutely amazing! I was thrilled that I was able to learn so much about the country--both inside of the classroom and out. Most of my time was spent in Rio de Janeiro where I went to museums, movies, shows, the beach,…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    I took two courses while in Brazil--a Portuguese language class and one on Brazilian Popular Culture--but almost everything I learned about the country came outside of the classroom. The best part of my time in Rio de Janeiro, an absolutely stunning city that offers so much, was…

  • Dear Office of Study Abroad:

    The Duke in Brazil program allowed me to be completely immersed in the Brazilian culture and language. Having a host mother who was so warm and welcoming, yet spoke not a word of English, gave me the opportunity to expand my Portuguese vocabulary in a way…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    I had an incredible semester abroad —- different, complex, totally crazy. I traveled through Brazil, South Africa and France, wrote a four-part ethnography of public phone booths, and was privileged to live with five inspiring, caring, and unconventional host families. I was continually amazed that I was…
