(7 weeks of total immersion--over 500 hours of classes and activities in Portuguese). Another Portuguese 1122 student, Laura Garcia(also in VSB), has been chosen as a volunteer for the Rio Olympics. This was a competitive application process with qualified applicants from all over the world. She will spend a month in Rio this summer helping the athletes to get settled in.
