Portuguese for foreigners

Enrolment online

The aim of the course is to teach Portuguese by means of a dynamic and situational method. It is addressed to students over 13 that need to learn the language in a colloquial and correct way and in a short time.

We’ll try to make the beginner student speak, read, listen, understand and write Portuguese while, at the same time, offering conditions to continue his/her learning.

Besides the study of grammatical structures, the presentation of cultural, geographic and historical aspects are very important for the involvement of the student with the Portuguese language, so these will also be highlighted.
