Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Don´t miss a trip to Sagres and the beaches near Sagres. You can get a good rate for a car-rental at the airport. Sharing a car with some students are less expensive and definitely a good thing.
Other comments: There are 4 classrooms and a nice yard. At each level there were not more than 3 students, even in August. It seems Faro is less crowdy than most of other places. For some partypeople may be a bit slow, but perfect for combining study and leisure. My teacher prefered to teach less grammatical issues and the focus was always on speaking, listening and comprehension. The book was excellent. You can take your own copy home. If you like they will sell you a exercise book and grammar book for the same price as the local bookstore.
the good teacher and individual teaching which permitted me to advance very fast
