Pupil’s testimonials


I have been learning Portuguese with Luis for almost one year. I like the method he uses. He gradually teaches the structure of the language at a pace to suit you. You don’t get too much information together. In the beginning I couldn’t say anything except “obrigada”. Now I can speak with Luis for about half an hour in the present and past tenses and a simple form of the future.

Luis and I meet every week for one hour on Skype, and we have done so the past year. I started from scratch without any knowledge of the Portuguese language. Today we speak together in Portuguese, we read Portuguese literature and I learn a lot about Portugal and its culture and history. As a business man I am always on the move, but with the help of Skype I do not miss my lessons. It is a very efficient way to have private classes with your professor although you are in different locations.

People would always tell me what a difficult language Portuguese is. I found that with this simple and logical approach it all made sense.  I now don’t panic to find someone who speaks English! Being able to use Skype is so convenient because I can have my lessons wherever I am. I can thoroughly recommend this course.
