Our Story

CIC Idiomas was created in 2003 in Nova Prata in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The school was initially started to provide language services to employees from the companies that belongs to the chamber of industry and commerce. Shortly after its start, CIC Idiomas experienced considerable growth as it opened its doors to the surrounding community.

CIC Idiomas is an independent language school in Nova Prata that belongs to the Rede Mais Idiomas language school network in Rio Grande do Sul. The school is the first of the region to receive the seal of approval to be a Cambridge Educational Partner as the school provides high quality instruction for students and follows the same academic, social, environmental and ethical principles.

CIC Idiomas values the individual nature of instruction and provides differentiated instruction to meet students where they are in their language learning journey. In early 2020, CIC Idiomas began offering virtual language classes for American students in Portuguese, Spanish and Italian via Zoom. Classes can be individual or in small groups up to a maximum of eight (8) students. Classes exist for all ages starting at age 7 and ranging through adult. The classes are taught by trained, native-speaking educators who not only understand best practices in language teaching, but also how to build rapport and relationships through virtual instruction.

We encourage you to let us know what your needs are for a language class. Please let us know the age of the student, the language desired, the existing knowledge of the language and what state and time zone the student lives and we can tell you if we already have a class that exists for your child or we can help you create one! We hope that you will give yourself or your child the gift of language with CIC Idiomas.

To get started, please complete this form to share your needs and interests with us and we’ll get back to you shortly with possible options and schedules. If there is a current class that matches your needs, you are welcome to virtually “sit in” on a class to see what you think and meet the teacher!
