What if I am too old to learn?

It's never too late or too old to learn. We, adults, tend to find many excuses. One needs strong motivation and commitment to a goal.

Our European Portuguese Online group course is the perfect choice if you are looking for an interactive online experience.

Besides grammar, you will practice all the communicative aspects of the language in our virtual classroom alongside people with the same language goals as yours.

I don't have the time and I live far

Our classes run outside working hours! Perhaps all you need is to organize well your diary and perhaps wake up one hour earlier in the day?

And nowadays travel, lockdowns and social distance make classical classrooms unappealing why not benefit from our online courses?


These allow you to study in the comfort of your own home.

All you need is an internet connection and a

Do Not Disturb sign on your door
