Acabei de estudar por duas semanas na escola Portuguese Connection. Foi uma experiência excelente! Os professores ajudaram-me muito para avançar na minha habilidade de falar e entender mais sobre a cultura do pais, sua literatura, seus costumes, sua política. Eles estavam muito entusiasmados para partilhar as suas experiências, e rapidamente entenderam quais eram as areas mais importantes para eu avançar. Tinha muitas oportunidades de falar para ficar mais confortável com a expressão oral. Os membros da administração também foram muito amigáveis, era como estar em familia. Definitivamente vou voltar para estudar mais nesta escola.

I highly recommend Portuguese Connection School. In October (2023) I took a four week course (4 hours daily). My two instructors (Andreia, Daniela) were SUPERB - very knowledgable, energetic and empathetic. Each lesson demonstrated their outstanding teaching skills. The School is well organised with a friendly atmosphere.

It was a very satisfactory experience and everybody a the school is super helpful and likable.
Performance of the teachers was overall excellent. Especially Raffael with his enthusiasm stands out.
The combination group/individual lessons worked perfectly for me, as at times the composition of the groups was a bit unfortunate. With sometimes other students hindering the progress. But of course, this can be controlled by the school only to a certain degree, and maybe other students might have thought the same about me.
All teachers give handy tips as for life in Lisbon as such, books, restaurants etc..
I enjoyed the park across the street as it was perfect for recreation between classes.
Bottomline, I wanted to make as much progress as possible in a month and was ready to roll up the sleeves. The teachers satisfied my needs perfectly. They adapted to my approach and were ready to push me.
I highly recommend Portuguese Connection language school!

In February 2023 I attended two weeks of intensive course with extra individual lessons at Portiguese Connection and I can fully recommend the school and both course formats. All teachers and staff I interacted with were very friendly, professional, and well-prepared. Group size of the morning classes was between 4 and 6, and the teacher was able to perfectly cater to our different backgrounds and aims. The individual classes gave me the possibility to work on my weak spots and ask all the questions I had. It was evident that both teacher and organisation went to length to design the best format for my aims. Murió obrigado e até logo! Daniel

I attended an intensive course with additional private lessons for 2 weeks. I think my expectation was to learn a little bit of grammar. At least this was my plan. I do not know what happened but eventually I was able to understand much more and even ask questions!... What I know for sure is that Portuguese connection has great teachers. They are incredible excellent, with great materials and methodology. The most important attitude, however, is their dedicated commitment and joy to teach the language. They know what they do! Thank you so much Diana, Rafael and Ricardo. I would have liked to stay and continue my Portuguese journey, also because the whole staff and the atmosphere are uniquely warm and welcoming. A highly recommended school.

This past month has been my second studying with Portuguese Connection, albeit the two periods separated by a pandemic. But on returning for intensive individual classes after a couple of years apart, it was like being back with old friends. The school seems to be again thriving and for good reason. The classes with the always professional Andreia and Ricardo are warm and fun but appropriately serious when required, and often involve intense learning.
The conversational gambit from a demanding student is wide, with no subject off limits, and Andreia with her fascinating experiences working for years in Guinea-Bissau and Ricardo with his expertise in Latin American affairs are more than equal to the task. I feel I have caught up on the pandemic-enforced absence and are now pressing ahead, though each day forward simply reveals how far there remains to go. My wife and I tested a number of schools in Lisboa before alighting on Portuguese Connection, and I know we made the correct choice.
I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Portuguese Connection Language School is a great place to learn Portuguese. I have been having online classes for nearly one year and my teacher has been brilliant. The school sets a clear learning path and is very organised. Highly recommended.

Meine Ehefrau und ich haben einen 4-wöchigen Intensiv-Kurs an der Portuguese Connection School in Lissabon belegt. Unsere Lehrer waren immer perfekt auf die Lektionen vorbereitet und voll motiviert, uns die Sprache beizubringen. Die Lektionen waren abwechslungsreich gestaltet und wir konnten unsere bereits vorhandenen Sprachkenntnisse weiter verbessern. Die Portuguese Connection School in Lissabon kann ich sehr weiterempfehlen. Gerne werden meine Ehefrau und ich bei Gelegenheit wieder einen Kurs an dieser Schule belegen. Der Sprachaufenthalt hat uns grossen Spass bereitet. Vielen herzlichen Dank an die Lehrerschaft für die Geduld und den tollen Einsatz.

Die Portuguese Connection School in Lissabon kann ich allen, welche die portugiesische Sprache erlernen wollen, sehr gut weiterempfehlen. Die Lehrer sind äusserst motiviert und sympathisch, haben viel Geduld und helfen jederzeit weiter. Der Standort ist ideal, gleich gegenüber des wunderschönen Parkes Principe Real. In meiner Klasse waren Menschen aus unterschiedlichen Nationen und jeden Alters. Dies schätzte ich sehr. Ich hatte eine fantastische Zeit an dieser Schule und fühlte mich sehr wohl während meines 4-wöchigen Sprachaufenthaltes. Ich beabsichtige, sobald wie möglich, meine Sprachkenntnisse in der Portuguese Connection School in Lissabon weiter zu verbessern. Muitíssimo obrigada e até breve!

This is a great language school for European Portuguese. I took my first class in Lisbon prior to Covid and have taken 4 sessions via Zoom since. I live in California and they have a class that is perfect for my schedule. All instructors are excellent and PC has a great method for teaching. I am working toward citizenship and will be taking the CIPLE exam in the fall. I can not say enough about PC! oh... and the price is very reasonable!!
