One-to-one

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!
