About Português et Cetera:

Photo of Learn Portuguese in Lisbon, PortugalAfter several years of experience teaching Portuguese to foreign students, Fernanda Ferreira decided to found her own language school in 2005. Public demand for such a school had been growing and, in Fernanda's experience, other establishments and University departments were not always able to give students the customized tuition they deserve. She decided to set up her own school where she welcomes many students eager for the Portuguese language experience.

Flexible & Creative Methodology:
Flexibility and creativity could be our slogan. A rigorous knowledge of Portuguese Linguistics and Grammar rules give a scientific approach to our methodology. We try to create lessons that feature natural communication & a familiar atmosphere. This allows students to learn in an enjoyable way. 

We don't use standard texts; rather we focus on the individual needs and interests of our students.

Experienced & Qualified Teachers:

Our teaching of Portuguese links the reality of daily life in Portugal to its linguistics. Our tutors offer assistance wherever needed, facilitating the students' integration into the socio-cultural environment of their new country.

Linguistic and cultural difficulties in daily situations, such as dealing with public services, banks, solicitors, postal services, down to the more simple things such as ordering your meal in a restaurant and going shopping, are all subjects discussed freely during classes. Our teachers are always happy to help.
