Other comments: The level of my class was lower than the one I was in Lisbon or Faro, due to a low number of students
Very, very friendly teachers. The school is relatively small and very cozy, which makes you feel like in a family :) The quality of teaching is high, and adjusted to students individual needs. I strongly recommend this school to everyone who would like to learn wonderful Portuguese language, and spend time in a social, friendly, entertaining manner.
