You will learn the language with the students, hearing both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course.

You'll stick with it because you'll love it. All you need to do is relax and pretend you are one of the students in the class.


This is a unique method perfected over 50 years by the psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas.

You pick up the language naturally and unforgettably.


These are the eight-hour course for European Portuguese.
