Review for Abrace Inc - Brazilian Association of Culture and Education, McLean, VA, USA
ABRACE has been essential to nurturing and growing our children's Brazilian heritage while living in the USA. I think it would have been very difficult for me to maintain speaking Portuguese at home without ABRACE. I did not have huge expectations when we signed up for class, but this group of Brazilian (mostly) moms absolutely blew me away!!! The coordination and execution of the weekly Portuguese/ Brazilian cultural classes is amazing. A lot of love goes into the weekly classes, but also an incredible amount of professionalism and high-quality teaching. And they think of everything - a meet up room where parents can work if they want to stick around during classes (because families like us drive from pretty far to be a part of the group!), an extensive library of books in Portuguese, a really impressive youth volunteer program, workshops about speaking Portuguese at home, a story time for infants, a book fair, a Carnaval parade, a reading program, and just a really welcoming and great group of people!
