Our Portuguese courses range from Regular to Immersion.
Regular Portuguese courses are meant to suit the needs of people living, working or studying in Porto. Timetables are much more flexible and Portuguese lessons are held either in the morning or late in the evening. Extensive Portuguese, Part Time Portuguese or Erasmus Portuguese aim at providing a great opportunity to learn Portuguese while you’re in Porto. They extend for longer periods of time and are less intensive.
Immersion courses provide you with intensive and super intensive Portuguese courses.
These range from Light to Intensive +10 Portuguese.
So you may choose between 15 lessons per week with Light Portuguese, 20 with Standard Portuguese, 20 group lessons + 5 private lessons with Intensive +5 or 20 group lessons + 10 private with Intensive +10 Portuguese.
Apart from these courses, we also offer you a weekend option, which is City Break. This Portuguese course has a different structure and aims at giving short term students the chance to learn Portuguese and know Porto at the same time. It’s a 3 day Portuguese programme that combines 16 Portuguese lessons at school and 14 other hours just knowing Porto and speaking Portuguese while doing it.
We also give you the chance to go on studying Portuguese in your country. Long Distance Portuguese is an online course via skype that focus mainly on speaking skills. This is the ideal Portuguese course if you have already learnt Portuguese and just don’t want to lose it. Students buy a pack of 20 Portuguese lessons and have the chance to organize their own timetable with their teacher. These are private and flexible Portuguese lessons that allow you to build your own course at your own rythm.
However in case you’re still visiting Porto and want to have that same flexibility and dedicated lessons, you still have the option of a Tailor Made Portuguese course. This is totally planned by students according to their needs and schedule.
