SEE Learning Portuguese (PLE)

Portuguese is a very old Romance Language, derived from Latin, but with many influences from other cultures. Due to the Moorish occupation of the Iberian Peninsula during the Middle Ages and the participation of Portugal in the Age of Discovery, it has acquired words from many languages in the world, making of it a unique language.

It is the 6th most spoken language in the World, it is an official language in 10 countries, and it is spread through many more countries where it either influenced the local language or is spoken by Portuguese communities.

Testimonial

Speaking Portuguese changed my life – fulfilment, leadership, career
attitude, success, personal, social and professional growth and
opportunity. We all dream of a better life!Andrea (Italian)
Hi! We are Stefano and Elisabetta, an italian couple. We would like to work as
nurses in Angola, but we did not know how to speak Portuguese. So we thought: “what can we do?” “Lets go to Lisbon, the light city, where the silver hearth river flows.” We have a friend in Lisbon, who lives in Alfornelos. It is a popular part of the city, but also calm and very well connected by transports and services: it has metro, bus, bank, post office, supermarket…
Our friend found a language school: See Learning Center!We had a very well prepared teacher, who managed to teach us the Portuguese language, mixing grammar classes and transmitting the passion for fado and other music, advising films and books, walking through the city to find places and taste the Portuguese cuisine. We explored Lisbon day-by-day, which received us in its streets, with its perfumes. We could see the Tagus while drinking a bica or galão or perhaps an imperial.
