Our Portuguese language courses 
   
     
LanguageCraft is a language institute which teaches over 35 different languages (general and professional oriented modules) and which has a vast experience in the teaching of Portuguese as a Foreign Language.
Our goal is to provide the best and most efficient language learning experience, adjusted to your language skills and linguistic background.
In LanguageCraft we set high standards (according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) because we know what you need and we want to prepare you for new challenges, either in your daily routine or in your academic studies. 
With approximately 220 million native speakers and 260 million total speakers, Portuguese is usually listed as the fifth most spoken language in the world, the third-most spoken European language in terms of native speakers and it is also an official language of the European Union, Mercosul and the African Union.

Beginners groups
  Final Exam and Certificate
     
In LanguageCraft we have created two different beginners groups. One of these groups is for romance speakers (for Spanish, Italian and French) and the other one is for non-romance speakers. 
This way, we can guarantee that everyone has access to an excellent training experience, adjusted to your learning pace and linguistic needs.
  At the end of each course our students will have to do a final exam. Upon successfully passing this test, they will be entitled to receive a certificate.
The certificate contains personal information about the participant, level of the course and final mark. There is also relevant information about the contents given throughout the classes.

Our extensive courses   Different beginner levels
      
The extensive courses have a total duration of approximately two and a half months (30-hour training course). During this period you will be able to conclude a level. Classes are held twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays or on Tuesdays and Thursdays.   In LanguageCraft we have created two different beginner groups.
  The first one was specially designed for non-romance speakers in order to fulfill specific learning needs related to their linguistic background.
 
 
These groups require a minimum of 8 students and have a limit of 18 students per class.   The second group, for romance speakers (for Spanish, Italian and French) enables the students to learn the basics of the language in a fast paced environment, tough explaining the differences between the Portuguese language and their own mother tongue. 
The majority of the participants are either studying at the University and/or working while studying Portuguese at the same time. Because of this, we have created a set of timetables which provide you with different options so you can easily include our training programme into your daily routine.  
 
  This way, we can guarantee that everyone has access to an excellent training experience, adjusted to their learning pace and linguistic needs. 
 
 
    We have all levels from A1 to C2 (CEFR levels). In case you wish to know in which level you should enroll in, please, contact us at any time to schedule a free assessment interview with one of our teachers.

Our intensive courses   Different beginner levels
      
The intensive Portuguese courses have a total duration of two to three weeks, depending on the course plan (always 30-hour training courses). Classes are held every day, from Monday to Friday, two/three hours per session. These classes can be set during the morning, afternoon or evening slots.   In LanguageCraft we have created two different beginner groups.
  The first one was specially created for non-romance speakers in order to fulfill specific learning needs related to their linguistic background.
 
 
You can enroll in these groups during the summertime or in January, just before the beginning of the second semester.   The second group, for romance speakers (for Spanish, Italian and French) enables the students to learn the basics of the language in a fast paced environment, tough explaining the differences between the Portuguese language and their own mother tongue. 
We also offer semi-intensive courses. These take about four to six weeks to conclude, with three weekly classes of one hour and a half/two hours per session.  
 
  This way, we can guarantee that everyone has access to an excellent training experience, adjusted to their learning pace and linguistic needs. 
 
 
    We have all levels from A1 to C2 (CEFR levels). In case you wish to know in which level you should enroll in, please, contact us at any time to schedule a free assessment interview with one of our teachers.
Portuguese 20-hour small groups
 
Price: 260€ (plus 45€ of annual enrolment fee)
Number of participants: Minimum: 2  Maximum: 5
Total duration of the course: 20 hours
 
Advantages:
 
1 - Unlike the regular group courses, which require a minimum of 8 students and have a fix schedule, small groups allow you to start classes with a minimum of only 2 students. 
 
2 - You can create your own schedule, adjusted to your daily routine. This way, you won't have to skip any classes.
 
3 - As small groups take only 20-hours to conclude and you'll be going through the same contents as if you were in a 30-hour course, with 18 students in class, you'll be able to conclude a level in a faster pace (the maximum of only 5 students per small group allows the teacher to set a faster pace, ensuring that everyone is making progress on a steady rate).
 
4 - If every participant agrees to it, any class can be canceled with a 24-hour notice. These classes will be rescheduled directly with the teacher.
 
5 - The content of the course can also be focused on a specific topic (e.g. Portuguese for Lawyers, Portuguese for Physicians, Portuguese for the Media, etc.).
