Our Portuguese language courses
LanguageCraft is a language institute which teaches over 27 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.
In order to find out in which level you should enroll in, please, contact us so we can schedule a free assessment interview with one of our teacher.
Different beginner levels
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.
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, though explaining the differences between the Portuguese language and their own mother tongue.
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.
Final Exam and Certificate
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.
Portuguese 20-hour small groups
• Modules with a 20-hour duration
• Number of participants:
Minimum 2 and maximum 5
• Annual enrolment fee: 50 €
* price per student
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.).
