Theresa : Languages for Life “The staff were sweet, the teaching was great and the end result was I could speak far better Portuguese than I ever expected. I loved Faro, a beautiful city and I made some great friends at the college. Thanks CESA for an incredible experience – definitely the best thing I’ve done to date!” Jeremy: Private Tuition “The focus and effort by my tutors made for a demanding course, which was precisely what I wanted. I was extremely pleased with their willingness to ensure I got the most from my lessons and I made excellent progress over two weeks. Once work commitments allow, I plan to return to continue my studies. There’s no doubt in my mind that the concentrated course in Portugal was more beneficial to me than an elongated course in the UK.”

Jessica : Languages for Life “I expected to be able to come home having a basic level of conversation and grammar. In general, I expected clean, friendly accommodation and welcoming, patient staff at the language school. The experience far exceeded my expectations I came home having a high intermediate level of Portuguese; the home stay was brilliant, friendly and helpful. Furthermore the staff at the school were exceptional; welcoming and supportive.” Heidi: Languages for Life “My expectations were exceeded. I met a host of wonderful, different people, had a very enriching experience in all areas and I am now able to converse in Portuguese. The lessons were definitely a challenge, which was a definite positive. You feel like you are learning! I loved the fact that the teachers only spoke Portuguese during the lessons as this gets you thinking in Portuguese constantly. My teacher for the 8 weeks was absolutely brilliant – very patient, great sense of humour and didn’t only teach us the language but taught us about Portugal in general. He was also very reassuring in his teaching methods, always encouraging and getting you to improve. I found that the 3 hours in the morning was sufficient – you came out of the lessons feeling like you had used your brain!”
