Student opinions about Português et Cetera, Lisbon

Verified reviews only, uncensored. All student opinions from students who booked a course at the school with LanguageCourse.net.
The group of people we met in class. Amazing.
Classes in English. I already speak English. I wanted everything in Portuguese. What if you don't speak English? Very slow system, or outdated maybe.
