What we dislike about the school

  • Younger students should consider that the average age of students at this school is significantly higher than at most other schools.

Location: Portuguese Connection Lisbon is located in the historic, coastal city of Lisbon, Portugal. A city famed for its culture, delicious food, beautiful buildings, and good weather, Lisbon is a popular destination for students worldwide. The Portuguese Connection school is housed in Principe Real Square, in the heart of the city, and is within walking distance of many shops, cafés, restaurants and many of the city's attractions. Within a moment's walk of the Lisbon Botanical Gardens, The Museum of Natural History and Science, the Mirador of São Pedro of Alcântara, and the Principe Real Garden, students have much to enjoy in the proximity of the school. The school resides in a historic building but has a modern interior, with walls painted in graffiti and spacious communal zones equipped to provide comfort.

Getting around: There are excellent links to public transport, ensuring that the Praça do Comércio, the Castelo de S. Jorge, and the 7 hills of Lisbon are just a short journey away. Lisbon International Airport is within a 40-minute journey of the school via public transport.

Methodology: The school focuses on communication throughout its teaching methodologies. Use of role-playing and outside learning activities in natural contexts, such as going to the market, assist students in linking their learning to the real-world uses of Portuguese.

School facilities: The school also has a library, computer lab and offers free WIFI. All classrooms have heating and ample natural light to create an optimal learning environment.
  • The language school Portuguese Connection was founded in Lisbon, Portugal in 2015.
  • Legal name / parent company: CLPC - Centro de Idiomas Uni Lda
  • Tax registration ID: PT513095411

Besides the friendly enthusiasm of the teachers, I also enjoyed the relatively high-paced learning - I managed to learn a lot in only 2 weeks! Much more than expected.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Remember to ask the teachers and employees about good places to go for coffee, lunch, and sight-seeing. They really have a better idea than travelling guide books.
Other comments: I wholeheartedly recommend this school!
They took into account my previous knowledge and the lessons were adapted to my level. My private lessons were very efficient.
