School

Destination

Explore Portugal's hilly capital city of Lisbon, the largest and most vibrant city in the country. Located on top of 7 hills, it's not difficult to catch a glimpse of some breathatking views (especially at sunset!). São Jorge Castle lies at the very top, and looks out over the city's pastel houses and famous Lisbon trams. It's a beautiful and culturally rich city that has wonderful weather all year round, meaning that you'll be able to soak up some Portuguese sunshine regardless of the season.

Due to its standing in Finance, Commerce, Media, Entertainment, Arts, International Trade, Education and Tourism, Lisbon is also an Alpha World City. It's a hub of business and culture! Take a stroll round Rua Augusta to satisfy your shopping cravings, or visit the Lisbon zoo (which is one of the oldest zoos in the world!).

Relax on the beautiful beaches or lazily sip Sangria in one of the many Portuguese cafes - then head on over to the Zona Oriental for some entertainment frequented by the Lisbon locals. The world famous 'Pastéis de Belém' were created right here in Lisbon, meaning you can journey back to where the little handmade pastries came from and enjoy a sweet vanilla tart in a stunning, traditional bakery. It's a secret recipe they'll never reveal, and you'll be going back again and again for a taste of Portuguese history.

What are you waiting for? Your first steps towards Portuguese fluency start right here.

School

Our partner school is located in Alfornelos, just on the outskirts of Lisbon near Pontinha & Benfica, and the university district. With 20 years of experience, the school has a solid and reliable teaching method. The methodology is based on the [Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) (http://www.coe.int/t/dg4/linguistic/cadre_en.asp). Our partner also offers numerous other language courses, making the atmosphere very international.

The dedicated staff provide 24-hour support to their students, helping them learn the language and discover Portugal at the same time. The school is in an excellent location and very easily accessible by public transport - making it easy to hop on one of the Lisbon trams and wander around the city during your free time.

Activities

Our partner has social and leisure programmes designed to deliver a perfect balance between learning a language and experiencing a new culture. All activities are designed to encourage student to interact with the local people and therefore engage in authentic language learning. We offer a wide range of activities for students of all ages, including sight-seeing tours, interactive games and walking tours.

Lessons

Students have to be at least 18 years old. Complete beginners are also accepted. Courses are structured round 6 different levels of Portuguese, and each level can be completed in 4 weeks thanks to the interactive and personalised teaching methods the school uses.

One lesson lasts 50 minutes.

  • Standard course - 15 lessons per week

    With 3 lessons a day, this programme gives you enough time to discover the city of Lisbon and the surrounding areas. There is a maximum of 8 students per class.

  • Intensive course - 25 lessons per week

    This adds two supplementary group lessons per day to the standard programme mentioned above. There is a maximum of 8 students per class.

  • Private lessons - 5 to 40 lessons per week

    This programme is ideal for students wishing to learn as much as possible in a short period of time. Classes take place in the morning and the afternoon, according to the number of lessons chosen per week.
    You can also choose to follow the standard or intensive programme and add however many private lessons you desire.

    You must follow the programme for at least 1 week, but beyond that your programme can be extended for as long as you wish.

Accommodation

Host Family

We offer homestay accommodation in order to enable students to enjoy a total immersion. The host family will never live more than 20 minutes away from the school, easily accessible on foot or by public transport.

All families are controlled and monitored, and they all provide a warm and caring home away from home. They give the student the opportunity to improve their Portuguese language in a warm and traditional Portuguese environment.

Students have the option between a single or double bedroom, and they will be the only native speaker of their language at home unless requested otherwise. Half board or breakfast provided.

Upon request, we can also offer a room in an apartment or a hotel - Please contact us for more information.
