Portuguese in Portugal

Portuguese in Portugal

COURSE OVERVIEW

Our son had an incredible experience with EduTravel. He learned so much – both academically and a lot of “life learning” too.

Known for its incredible food and coastal living, Portugal welcomes travellers from across the world who want to learn first hand about its art, culture and history. What better way to learn their language than to immerse yourself in all three. Discover the major landmarks of Lisbon like Belem Tower, the Jerónimos Monastery and Castelo de São Jorge. Get a real look at the history of the country with visits to Obidos, Batalha, Alcobada and Fatima.

Tour one of Europe’s oldest city centres in Porto and discover it’s medieval charm down the narrow cobbled streets that wind past merchants’ houses and cafes. Discover the beauty of the Jardim do Morro and the coast from the ground and from above with a ride on the Cable Car. Visit the home of FC Porto and see behind the scenes of the football club’s stadium at Estádio do Dragão.
