Portuguese Connection is a boutique-style language school located in Principe Real Square, in the heart of the beautiful city of Lisbon. Portuguese Connection prides itself on its stimulating and dynamic learning atmosphere, with its teachers specially selected and trained to help students get the most out of their classes. Lessons focus on communication and as a result feature role playing, debates, trips to markets and cafes to practice what has been learnt in the classroom and oral presentations.
The school is modern and light, with its walls painted with artistic street art from around the country. Located in a 19th century building in one of Lisbon’s most attractive neighborhoods, there are plenty of trendy cafes, restaurants and bars nearby.
Portuguese Connection knows that learning about the local culture is part and parcel of a successful language course abroad. As a result, all courses include lessons looking at history, politics, religion, music, economics and contemporary society across the Portuguese speaking world. To have more time to learn about Portuguese culture you can choose to take the Group Course + Art, which includes not only painting classes and learning specialized artistic vocabulary but also trips to local gardens, markets, museums and beautiful squares to help inspire you. Alternatively, the Group Course + Wine will give you a chance to learn more about Portuguese wines through tours and tastings, and those interested in water sports should take advantage of the course combining Portuguese and surfing lessons.
The school offers a free sightseeing activity to its students every week and also organizes several additional activities for a small fee. These may include tours of the city, wine tasting, museum tours, water sports and much more. Portuguese Connection can also help you to plan excursions for your weekends such as a trip to Sintra or a dolphin-watching tour.
