Tenho muitas saudades de Brasil e meu tempo lá. Agradeço de novo todo o que vocês fizeram pra mim e toda a ajuda do CCCI.

"I don’t know where to begin to describe my year abroad in Brazil! I was an exchange student from New Zealand who did the intensive course and 2 semesters at PUC-Rio (2018). I was so worried about arriving alone in a country where I didn’t know anyone but from day 1, the staff and students who organize the exchange program made things really easy! Orientation day and regular group activities like hiking, pub crawls and beach days make it virtually impossible to feel alone in a city as big as Rio. There were difficult moments but I would give anything to do it all again and visit Rio. It really is the cidade maravilhosa and I feel like the energy and warmth of how cariocas received me brought out the best possible version of myself. My advice to anyone considering choosing PUC-Rio as an exchange destination; stay for two semesters and don’t be afraid to take classes in Portuguese because the professors and students are very helpful and understanding!"
