Training Methodology used in Portuguese Courses

The Language School of Sardines chooses to follow the new technologies and pedagogical tendencies. As the groups have a maximum of 5 students, it becomes easier and more frequent to interact with colleagues and teachers, this way allowing more communication in Portuguese.

During lessons, computer resources, interactive whiteboard, PowerPoint presentations, videos and audios are used to make the whole process of learning the Portuguese language dynamic and fun. The teacher becomes the moderator of the lesson, giving the students the possibility to participate frequently, explaining the Portuguese grammar and correcting whenever necessary. Without having the chance to speak Portuguese how can you learn it?
