Question The best place to learn Brazilian Portuguese?

Hello everyone,
I'm currently studying Portuguese in the UK and I want to come to Brazil over the summer to improve it. I've been looking for different options online but the list is just too long and I have no idea how to proceed.
I was thinking about going either to Salvador or Maceio but then again I can be pretty flexible depending on where the good options are.
Does anyone have good advices? School names? etc. It would be really helpful! Thank you in advance

You've probably done something like this already but try googling using google.com.br with the string: Salvador português para estrangeiros - for example. The first in the list when I run it is a course by the Goethe-Institut in Salvador. You might also check the universities in whatever city you're interested in. Some have "cursos de extensão" which are open to the public. The Universidade de Brasília for example has the extension course "Português para estrangeiros" - i studied there and it was relatively cheap and good. Salvador will probably have many more options than Maceió. Good luck.

Another idea: Write to the course in Brasilia and see if they can suggest a course in the north east. They are well-connected to other universities. You should be able to write to them in English if you need to. See their site for the contact: PEPPFOL - Português para Estrangeiros - UnB
