Welcome to Brazil Nuts!

Brazil Nuts is an active student organization at the University of Pittsburgh. Since its creation in 1998, the group's primary goal has been to expose students to Brazilian culture and the Portuguese language, creating environments for the students to practice their Portuguese outside of the classroom and to interact within the Brazilian community.

The club's activities provide students with unique opportunities to learn more about Brazil and its people. Weekly dance classes are offered where participants can enjoy themselves while learning about axé, samba and other forms of Brazilian dance, while movie nights provide viewers with a chance to witness the art of Brazilian cinema. The club also offers Bate-Papo, a weekly conversation table where students of all levels can practice Portuguese with peers and native Portuguese speakers.

Membership is open to anyone who is interested in the Portuguese language and learning about the cultures where Portuguese is spoken. Take a look at our site, learn about some of our activities and find out about other events occuring in the Pittsburgh area!
