2019 Portuguese Summer Courses in Lisbon

Learning Portuguese in Lisbon during holidays. Is there a better way to enjoy summer? We all know that Lisbon is a passionate city, but the Portuguese language can be even more. 

The Portuguese language has been the vehicle of so many fascinating writers like Fernando Pessoa or Paulo Coelho, or by musicians, who through fados, mornas, kizombas, sambas or bossa nova can trill or excite us. 

Whatever the pronunciation or accent, the Portuguese language has something that captivates and interests us. Its phonetic richness, for many people a true mystery of the origin of so many nasal sounds, and historical richness, because it comes from a small country that can be both the beginning or the end of Europe, but that has managed to arrive in such a striking way to America, significant to Africa and symbolic to Macau in China. A language and culture that has also reached other languages. Did you know that orange in Romanian is portocalle? 

During summer we only organize Portuguese intensive courses of 1 or 2 weeks. These courses correspond to 1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. You can, however, only do half a level for 1 week. 

Our Portuguese Courses

The 20 hour Portuguese courses correspond to half of 1 level and are part of the 40-hour courses. These courses take place either in the morning or in the afternoon. 

The 40 hour Portuguese courses lasts 2 weeks. The classes take place from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. or from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Each class lasts 4 hours, with a half-time interval. 

Our groups have a maximum of 5 students per classroom. In this way you will have more opportunities to be able to apply the knowledge acquired in Portuguese classes. Our classes are fun and dynamic, with the use of new technologies, which make learning so much easy.

Find out Lisbon

The language school of the sardines is right in the historic center of Lisbon, in the street Sapateiros, which greatly facilitates access to the most fascinating places of the city. The Santa Justa elevator is a few meters away, you can see it every day.

With a periodicity of 2 cultural activities per week during summer, we take you to visit places of interest, among them, museums and exhibitions or just stroll through little unknown streets but with very interesting details. We take breaks to eat or drink during these walks and end at Cais do Sodré or Bairro Alto.
