Preparations for hosting the greatest sporting event in the world go far beyond the construction of new sports venues and staging of test events. Making sure that foreign visitors for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games are well looked after, is a prime concern for cariocas, as residents of the city are known. For many, their first contact with carioca culture will be through one of the 50.000 taxi drivers that circulate around the city.

To improve communication between taxi drivers and tourists, the organizing committee will provide 10.000 free online English courses to drivers. This is the second course, such initiative as well as other courses were 10.000 in August. The course takes an average of four months and is provided by the official supplier of language services for the Games of Rio.
