Welcome to Porto Lingua Language School!
We offer courses in the following languages: Portuguese (European Portuguese and Brazilian
Portuguese), English, Italian, Spanish and German as foreign languages. Our language courses are
aimed at participants of all skill levels – from beginners to advanced learners, who already possess
some knowledge of the target language.
Furthermore, we offer preparatory courses for English tests such as TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication), FCE (First Certificate in English), CAE (Certificate of Advanced English) or DSH / TestDaF (German language university entrance exams for foreign students).
Also specific language classes, especially English courses such as Business English as well as courses aimed at professionals like engineers, lawyers, economists, doctors or office staff, are also available at our language school.
Are you already planning your next vacation in Portugal, Brazil, Spain, Italy or in an English speaking
country? We have the right course for you!
At your discretion, you can learn your target language in a one-to-one private course or in small groups (up
to 8 participants). If you would like to learn the language in a particular fast and efficient way, you can enrol
for a suitable intensive language course.
Even if you do not live in Germany you are welcome to join us for online language lessons. Languages, such
as English, can be taught online (worldwide via SkypeTM) or over the telephone*. In order to support your
learning progress in a most efficient manner we further provide with additional learning materials via our
MoodleTM online platform.
After successful participation in one of our courses you will, on request, receive a certificate.

Languages, like bridges, connect people. Languages open doors to new worlds and allow us to communicate
with others, and to express our feelings and opinions. They shorten the distance between people, countries
Porto Lingua Language School was born from this idea. From the idea that the language is a bridge that
brings people, countries and cultures closer together. The logo of our school is the Bridge Dom Luís I
over the Douro River, which connects the cities Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia in Portugal.

you need foreign languages for professional or personal reasons - your goals are our goals.
