With around 250 million speakers, Portuguese is one of the most spoken languages in the world and it has one of the highest growth rates in the Internet and in social networks. By learning this fascinating language, your child will embark on an exciting journey into the culture of many different countries. Portuguese is, in fact, the official language of Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal and São Tomé and Príncipe, and one of the official languages in East Timor, Equatorial Guinea and Macau. It is also spoken in many other places around the word, such as Goa, in India.

Whether your child is of Portuguese or Brazilian descent, or just loves Brazilian or Portuguese football or even the musicality of the language, this is the program you are looking for.

With us, your child will have a compelling cultural and language immersion experience. In our program, the students engage with the Portuguese language through diverse and fun activities such as songs, games, drama and art. We practice a communicative approach; our learning tools are age-specific and designed according to children’s cognitive development at the various ages. All our teachers are highly qualified and have experience in working with children of different age groups. 

Our Portuguese program curriculum is organized towards the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
