I took the one week combined course (4 hours of group classes in the morning, 2 hours of private tutorial in the afternoon) in April. The standard of instruction is excellent and the tutors are friendly and encouraging. Having lived in Portugal for 10 years - and having tried many different ways of learning Portuguese, with limited success - I found this course incredibly helpful. I now feel able to communicate with my neighbours and will definitely take a follow up course later this year. Be prepared to work hard, swallow your nerves and participate as much as possible and you will have the best chance of success! Thank you to everyone at Portuguese Connection!

As someone who had been living in Lisbon for over a year, but found engagement with the language very difficult, I was nervous about starting classes, but the teachers at Portuguese Connection are very friendly, helpful and encouraging, so these fears soon faded. I have now completed two courses with PC and hope to complete more in the future!

I have no hesitation in recommending Portuguese Connection as the perfect gateway to learning the language in a relaxed and fun environment. The school has friendly and knowledgable teachers who go the extra mile to making the cultural and linguistic journey such an enriching experience. I found the classes exceptionally enjoyable as well as a deeply rewarding way to meet like-minded people from around the world - and all walks of life. Situated in the vibrant heart of Principe Real, the location couldn't be a better way to learn the language of poets in the enchanting city of Lisboa!

I loved every minute of my week at Portuguese connection. There is an extremely friendly atmosphere around the school, and all of the teachers are extremely friendly. The location and the facilities are also very good. Throughout the course of just 4 days of individual lessons, my spoken Portuguese undoubtedly improved dramatically, and I immediately felt the confidence to go out into the great city of Lisbon and talk with the locals! Would certainly recommend to anyone who wants to improve their language, whilst also meeting some very good people along the way.

I did a week's intensive group course here with an extra hour of individual classes every day on the side. A lovely company who really like to get to know their students and personalise their teaching, I felt welcome from the moment I walked in! The teachers really know how to get their point across and I felt my Portuguese improved massively over the course of just one week. I'd thoroughly recommend! Até já.

Portugeuse connection is a friendly team of happy people who encourage you to learn portuguese from the scratch, they reply at your mails on time and are always willing to help you in the best way possible! I attended portuguese classes there for 3 months, and finally I am able to communicate during my daily activities in Lisbon. The dog is the sweetest attraction !! Abraço, Eva .

I look back at my time in the school and I realize I learned quite a bit in 6 weeks. The teachers were really fantastic at teaching you rules to the grammar followed by a few tricks to help you recall the rules more immediately and constant practice in speaking. I've taken online courses through other sites without the instruction of a teacher and I realized that I was missing the fundamentals to understand why you would use one verb tense over another. It didn't make sense to me until I took professional classes with Portuguese connection. i recognize this now as I am reviewing my studies. To sum it up in order to learn effectively I would highly recommend classes here and you'll be impressed with your progress.
