Although our Portuguese lessons have the same 6 levels as the English, German and French courses, they are structured differently. This is because our students who study Portuguese have very different expectations compared to our Portuguese students learning a foreign language.
The foreign students who study Portuguese can be divided into 2 distinct groups:
- those who live in Portugal (full-time or part-time) and want to learn Portuguese to integrate fully into the community,
- or business people who normally need specialised courses relating to their professions.
Except in the case of beginners, all students are interviewed to assesss their levels. Students can choose to have private lessons or study in a group (4-8 students). Our most popular group course is the 30-lesson one for beginners. It is really enjoyable and the aim is to have students speaking Portuguese as quickly as possible.
