Live and Study Portuguese at your own private teacher's home!

Live with your teacher and improve your Portuguese by being totally immersed in the language and culture! We offer private language lessons in the teacher's home. This 1- to-1 home tuition program is proven to be one of the most effective ways to learn a language in a short period of time! With these individual tailor-made language lessons, your progress will significantly improve your Portuguese.

You live with your teacher and share meals and social interactions. This way, even when you are not attending class, you will make rapid progress. It is a very intensive way of learning a language since you study AND live in your teacher’s home. Our intensive language immersion programs are the key to your success! 

What should I expect from my one-to-one Portuguese lessons? 

Each student is hosted by a private teacher with native language skills. Thus, the home tuition program offers a full language and cultural immersion. Wherever the student chooses to stay, there will be a vast array of wonderful things to discover and take in. Total immersion guaranteed! The Spanish lessons will cover the four skills of the language learning process: 

  • speaking;
  • listening;
  • reading;
  • and writing. 
We also offer special programs to help improve school or university levels and prepare for exams.

The teacher is also the host for the accommodation, giving the student a unique opportunity for full integration into the local environment. When you book your private language course at your teacher's house you can choose between 15, 20, 25 or 30 hours.
