Testimonials - Portuguese in Lisbon

The staff were highly qualified, conscientious and appeared genuinely to enjoy teaching Portuguese. I appreciated the ability of the contact people to find a solution to every problem and their willingness to work hard to ensure client satisfaction. Languages Abroad is definitely customer-oriented.

The program in Lisbon far exceeded my expectations. Every aspect of the staffing, including administrative staff were highly professional and dedicate to helping the students have a rewarding and pleasant experience. I found that the quality of instruction approximated that of a university and that the instructors were not only extremely well-educated in Portuguese language and culture, but in teaching methods as well. The experience was certainly worthwhile and good value for the price.”

My experience was really good! I learned a lot in a month and met new friends from all over the world. Everyone at the school was really nice and the women where I lived was very kind and caring! Don’t be afraid and just do it. You will meet new people, make new friends and you would like to stay longer!

I received the pre-departure information at the last minute, but in general, everything was good. Every time I have sent an email, I received an answer really fast. My host family was a really nice place well located. My room was comfortable and the lady I lived with also spoke French and English so we were able to understand each other. The teachers were really good. We learned a lot in one month. We were only 4 in my class and it was perfect.”
