Student opinions about Lusa Language School, Lisbon

Liked
I loved the methodology and the teaching staff, I have learned a lot in the intensive course, I consider it very good, and I would continue if it were cheaper because it is worth it. I recommend this school, I am very happy with how much I have advanced, and how I have managed to speak so much in such a short time. In any case, it has market prices, as many other language schools costs the same or more, and it works very well because the groups are small and very interactive...
Disliked
The price: all the language schools in Lisbon are expensive.

Teachers and teaching were very good and efficient. I learned a lot. There could have been more varied activities organised by the school instead of just a dinner once a week usually in a expensive restaurant considering there are many really good authentic Portuguese and not expensive ones to choose from.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Organisation at the school in general is ok. If you wish to change something the class level or the schedule of the class, talk to the staff and they might be able to accommodate you. That was the case for me when I asked to change from afternoon to morning class.

The teacher (Barbora) was excellent! She explained great, there were good exercises, she let us discuss animatedly at times... Our group was great! I learned a lot and laughed a lot!!! It's a pity that I had to leave already.
Disliked
Windows open: Too loud due to street noise. Window closed: Thick air as the heads are smoking.... Air conditioning makes sense, but I don't like it.

At the 2nd address, we often waited outside the door, either on the pavement or on the landing of the 4th floor, because of key problems.

The fact that you are taught by different teachers and are thus introduced to the language in a very 'diverse' way. The good atmosphere in the school.

The frequent malfunctioning of the equipment, especially the photocopiers, which teachers also complained about.
