What we're about


The New York Brazilian Portuguese Meetup (NYBP) is a fusion of Brazilian culture and Portuguese language to bring Brazil closer to New York.

We host events that encourage members to better understand the Brazilian culture, such as samba and forró lessons, Brazilian movies and concerts, bate-papo (light conversation in Portuguese), happy hour, picnic, and much more. We encourage everyone to speak in Portuguese only to truly understand Brazil and its friendly people. It is an opportunity to practice your language skills, meet nice people, network, and have fun!

Our Facebook page has Portuguese language tips, travel tips, curiosities about Brazil and its culture, and other tools to help you improve your Portuguese. You can join us and like us on https://www.facebook.com/nybrazilian/

We hope you get a lot out of the experience and bring something to the group as well.

Até breve e obrigada por ser parte do nosso grupo!

P.S.: This is a social group; we don't teach Portuguese during our meetings and don't do language exchange. But we can sure help you with some Portuguese language tips! Do not advertise classes to our members unless you are our sponsor. Thank you for your cooperation.
