Our course levels are completely designed according to the guidelines of CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). The Common European Framework divides learners into three broad divisions (Basic, Independent and Proficient users) that can be divided into six levels; for each level, it describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing. The six reference levels (see below) are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual's language proficiency.

Why Portuguese ?

 

  • Job advantage:

    Brazil (whose main language is Portuguese) belongs to the BRIC group, an acronym for ‘Brazil, Russia, India and China’,which means its economy has grown rapidly during the last years. During the next few years, more jobs will open up in Brazil and Brazilian companies will also expand their operations into more countries around the globe. So, you just might find yourself moving to Brazil to work or having a competitive advantage over colleagues at your company if you speak Portuguese;

  • Volunteer opportunities:

    You might have dreams of becoming a volunteer abroad; why not in a Portuguese speaking African country or in East Timor? Many institutions organize annual voluntary missions to promote the development of those countries. Whether you are a doctor, a nurse, a cook, a nutritionist, a teacher or just a simple citizen desiring to help and experience something new and exciting!

  • Multi-linguistic:

    Once you learn how to speak Portuguese, learning Spanish, French and Italian becomes much easier. For example, the word ‘example’ is exemplo in Portuguese, ejemploin Spanish, esempio in Italian and exemple in French. Actually, a Portuguese can easily learn how to speak Spanish, French, Italian and even English, in part, because of the similarity between many of the words.

  • Exotic vacations:

    Most of the countries that are part of CPLC are beautiful holiday destinations due to their paradisiacal and exotic landscapes. So, being able to speak Portuguese might be useful if you are planning on diving into the pure waters of São Tomé e Principe next summer!

  • Bring on Portuguese smiles:

    And of course, you’ll find out that when you visit Portugal, even though most Portuguese people will attempt to speak English, Spanish or French once they realize you are a tourist, every one of them will be pleased and proud to hear you say obrigado (‘thank you’) in a funny way!
