The school is renowned for its approach to teaching Portuguese - based on a communicative and humanistic approach. Our class dynamics foster interaction and engage students in real-life situations. In addition, aspects of Brazilian culture are included in the course syllabus.
At TLC, the students can count on committed teachers and staff, who make sure to address each student’s individual interests and needs. The school has a lovely garden and a break area that offers a pleasant place to study and interact with other students and teachers.
Portuguese one-to-one tuition is offered at any level or for any objective and can be adjusted to the specific needs of the student. Once the level and objective of the student have been evaluated, a course is customized for each student.
In face-to-face courses, the student can also decide how intensive they want their course to be: between 1.5 and 6 hours a day one to five days per week.
When designing the course of study, the student’s objectives, interests and learning styles are considered. The flexibility that one-to-one classes offer allows you to enjoy the island while mastering the Portuguese language!
