With a background in Psychology, Language Teaching and Performing Arts, BRaPA offers all the activities inspiring THE AUDIENCES to be present in everything they are doing, to develop critical thinking, to get in touch with cultural aspect of Brazil consequently with musicianship. AUDIENCE also is able to find, explore and respect their limits in all of the learning processes in life.
Schumman's acculturation theory is put in practice at BRaPA - basically he believes that Language learning can not be separated from the cultural and social aspects of it.
All the workshops, performances and language tutoring are filled with passion and professionalism within the education and psychology world so students and audiences can experience a real learning moments connected to who they are, to who the target language speakers are (Portuguese speakers) and what their interests are.
