Which course is for you?
A guide to finding the right course
To help you choose the most suitable level of learning with colleagues of similar ability, four levels of English and three of Portuguese have been designed.
Two levels of conversation class are also available to increase your confidence, encouraging you to put your growing knowledge into action.
Through a myriad of innovative activities, all lessons will include a
varied selection of; reading, writing, listening, speaking, pronunciation,
grammar, vocabulary, songs and poems, role-play, conversation ..... and so much more!
At the start of each course, all students will be given a full syllabus showing each lesson's content during their 10 week course.
Each week there will be a free 'drop-in' social session for students to meet informally. I will be there to assist if you need further guidance on any topics we've covered during our lessons.
