I did 17 weeks in the Portuguese Connection school so it was pretty important that I liked the school from the start as I was going to be there for so long. I can easily say that from the moment I stepped foot in the school I was greeted by wonderful people all of whom helped me to enjoy my language learning experience and my time in Lisbon thoroughly. Marco and Anna-Lisa are pretty much always available to offer help or advice and sometimes I was surprised with how far they went. The majority of the time my teacher was Ivan who is a really cool guy with a passion for languages which comes across in his classes. With his and Joana's (another great teacher) help I managed to attain the level of B2 which I am very pleased with. I will definitely be returning in the future to attend a Summer Course which is full of great activities including an awesome day out at the beach. Obrigado amigos

I took two weeks of intensive group classes as a beginner, and I was impressed. They work by immersion, with a friendly and knowledgeable staff and teachers. In two weeks, we got a lot of vocabulary, regular and irregular verbs in present and past tense, numbers, and more: the final assignment was a short essay to be presented aloud. The other students were a diverse and interesting group. The school is in a comfortable suite of rooms across from a park (good for coffee during the break). The school helped arrange trips in and around Lisboa, as well.

If you want to learn Portuguese while being surrounded with positive, warm and professional people (and an extremely welcoming dog - Maggie), then Portuguese Connection is the school for you. With a beautiful interior and surroundings, located in the centre of Lisbon - you just cross the street and have a beautiful green oasis to take deep breaths in - it was a pleasure just walking to the school every morning. The teachers are amazing - during the two weeks I stayed, my teachers were Ivan and Carla, both of which really nice and open. Everyone is flexible and they know how to make Portuguese lessons interesting and challenging, while still fun. I felt at home from the first day of school and it was so hard leaving, but I know I will definitely be coming back! Obrigada a todos por tudo! Beijinhos

I enjoyed the lessons and made rapid progress in two weeks. Our teacher Clara enunciates very clearly and was very helpful. The staff--Annalisa and Marco--are very friendly. The school has a very good atmosphere--laid back yet everyone there works hard and the students are eager to learn the language. Lisbon is a nice city with good transport links. The tours arranged through the school--one to Sintra and another to the Arrábida mountains and Sesimbra for dolphin-watching--were very good as well. I can certainly recommend it!

My experience at the school was very positive, everyone was so nice and friendly. I made a lot of friends and also learned a lot of Portuguese! It's such a beautiful language. Regarding the city, Lisbon is an incredible place in which people always do something! There are many different things to do every day, you'll never get bored of it. Can´t wait to come back!

Studying with Portuguese Connection was a wonderful experience. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the my teacher was really very good at getting us to communicate in class. I also took the painting course offered by Portuguese Connection and was very happy with the tuition I received and with having the opportunity to see and draw different parts of Lisbon. Studying as part of my holiday allowed an intimacy with Lisbon that I would never have been able to have if I had simply arrived as a tourist.

The main reason why I decided to go to Lisbon and learn Portugues was my Double Degree Program in Brazil. I was aware that the Portuguese in Portugal and Brazil is quite different. So one of my focus was on understanding the difference between brazilian and portuguese Portuguse. Even though the teachers I met were from Portugal they always mentioned it if there was any difference between those two languages. Other amazing reasons why I would choose Portuguese Connection are: the class rooms are small l (Between 2 and 5 people), efficient learning (4h/day), perfect mix between grammer, reading, listening, writing and speaking and of course the nice people there. Teachers are always there to help, even in the break. I mostly had a drink near by with the teacher and spoke portuguese during the whole break. Great exercise to improve your speaking!
