I attended Portuguese Connection for more than one week in July 2019 for both group classes and 1:1 training leading up to taking the A2-level CIPLE exam. I loved attending these classes and the welcoming spirit and professionalism of the teachers and staff at Portuguese Connection. The teachers are extremely skilled and dedicated at their jobs and keep the lessons fun, interesting and germane to what you’ll experience in “real life” in conversations and with written and spoken Portuguese. And the lounge, coffee-break area, and fun external activities around Lisbon allow for different ways to practice your Portuguese skills with other students, teachers, and staff.
Also, our class of 9 students had representation from 7 nations on 3 continents, with age ranges from 17 to over 60 and some incredible-incredible job and life experiences to draw from!
Super-highly recommended if you're interested in some immersive training in speaking Portuguese: from an absolute beginner level to sharpening your skill set, and whether it be for a week or month(s). Muito obrigado Portuguese Connection - a experiência foi ótima!

My experience with Portuguese Connection was fantastic, I couldn’t speak more highly of the school. I attended for three weeks in June 2019. It was a mixture of group and individual classes. There were a lot of holidays when I was there but I feel like the school went out of it’s way to ensure that I still received the lessons I signed up for; they are a hard working bunch. The class sizes are small so you receive lots of attention and I felt like they were great at assessing my level and providing material accordingly. The teachers and staff were all wonderful, because of the small class sizes you can have a pretty personal relationship with your teacher and it’s definitely an asset. Also, they are all pretty funny, I laughed a lot.
On top of that, they plan social activities at least once a week that help you get to know Lisboa. If you travel around the country they have great recommendations for what to do in other cities, especially Porto! If you are thinking of studying Portguese in Lisboa I highly recommend this school.

Portuguese Connection is a great place to study Portuguese! It´s friendly, personal, relaxed, and downright fun! My teachers, Gonçalo and Marília were fantastic at explaining the language and having us practice it. The staff was warm and welcoming. My stay was too short, and I hope to go back again!!!

I had an excellent experience at the Portuguese Connection School. It was exactly as I had hoped. My instructor, Barbara, helped me with Brazilian Portuguese as I had requested and stayed in the target language. The staff of the school is extremely welcoming and helpful. I also enjoyed the extra-curriclular activity. I highly recommend the school.

I did a three weeks intensive course at Portuguese Connection. The experience has exceeded my expectations by far. I got to know a fantastic school, great teachers - thank you all very much - and great people in class. Looking forward to go back again ... ; )

自分のレベルに合わせて、日常的な会話から文法や単語までバランス良く教えてもらえます。先生たちもとてもフレンドリーで、困ったときはすぐに助けてくれました。私は英語すらカタコトでしたが、先生たちは私が理解出来るまで何度も説明してくれました。おかげで、前向きに勉強に取り組むことが出来ました。 2週間という短い期間でしたが、ここでの授業は私にとって本当に良い経験でした。また機会があれば、ここで勉強したいと思います!

I chose Portuguese Connection over one other school and the deciding factor was the proximity to my house, but I am so happy I made this decision! I would recommend this place to EVERYONE - not only for the level of education, which was obviously on top, but also for the amazing atmosphere and friendships that can be made there. All the teachers are very well prepared, patient and fun. The content was always interesting and useful. I made great progress over 2 intensive months I was there. 5 stars with clear conscience.

dAfter just one week of intensive course combined with individual lessons I feel it is much easier to understand some rules and their exceptions (e.g. usage of the pronouns) which were extremely complicated during my own study without a teacher. There have also been houseworks to do (grammatical excercises and an own creative composition - corrected then by a teacher). I do appreciate the operating ways of Portuguese Connection which are professional and give comfortable space to the students. The location of the school has got additional advantages to be emphasised: in a main commercial street, opposite to the beautiful park where you can rest and close to the fomous viewpoint (Miradouro de S.Pedro de Alcantara). I have also attended a workshop of painting what has been very exciting as I managed to paint my own azulejo panel.
