Brazil-Angola Cultural House
The inauguration ceremony of the Brazil-Angola Cultural House (BLCC), in 2003, was presided over by the President of the Republic. It is located in the Brazilian Embassy headquarters, in Luanda, which also houses the Brazilian Studies Center "Ovídio de Andrade Melo".
The CCBA offers 420 vacancies for those interested in the learning of Brazilian Portuguese. The courses are offered every calendar quarter, divided into four groups: two in the mornings and two in the afternoons.
There are also other activities organized by the CCBA such as "capoeira" classes, in a partnership with the Abadá Capoeira Group; the Project "Sopa de Letrinhas", which consists of reading sessions for children; Brazilian film screening; and literary meetings such as the "Café Literário", where Brazilian literature themes are debated, usually with the presence of local and Brazilian personalities.
