Did you know that acquiring a second language improves your memory and increases your attention span?
Besides, learning another language enhances your chances to get a better job, make friends and why not find your future new partner or business!
Open your mind and learn Portuguese!
Get ready to embark in this new and exciting language! If you plan to go to Brazil and want to see the best of it, learn Portuguese is a must. Few Brazilians speak good English and understanding their language is the key for success.

The objectives of the course are:
- To acknowledge words and phrases which are ordinarily used concerning themselves, their family and the immediate surroundings;
- To comprehend words, well-known names and sentences (for example, the ones present at catalogues and banners);
- To participate in conversations on common themes or immediate needs, to describe the place where they live and the people they know;
- To write letters and e-mails, to fill out forms with personal info, name, nationality, address etc.
