See the two faces of Faro, Portugal
When I think about Faro, I think about the sun, beaches, parties and relaxation!
The great thing about Faro is that it has two faces. In winter, it is a calm place, although it always has good nightlife because of the number of students from Algarve University present in the city. In summer there are lots of things to do because is filled with thousand and thousand of travellers that give life to the city.
If you are a beach lover and a sun lover I definitely recommend that you learn Portuguese in Faro. I go there every year at Easter because at that time of the year in Portugal, and especially in the Algarve, the weather starts to get warm. It's just perfect - warm but not too warm, and at that time of year there aren't many tourists so you can get to know the friendly locals well.
Teacher was excellent. After 2 weeks learning Portuguese, we're able to write Portuguese and to speak. That's great !
The teachers were extremely friendly and helpful, which created a very positive working atmosphere.
The location of the class was excellent in an old style building which added to the character of the course.
Despite needing to accommodate a range of abilities, even within a group 'moderated' by the initial test, the teachers provided a thoroughly professional course.
The teacher did a great job and made the course interesting and very useful. My accommodation was good, very clean, the staff were great and very discreet.
The course was excellent. It was geared well to the needs of students as, after an initial assesment, we were grouped according to our past experiencs and knowledge of the language.
The course was well designed to meet my specific need to improve my speaking skills. The mixture of formal study using the book and one to one discussions on a variety of subjects was very helpful.
The teachers were above my expectations and I developed a great foundation to learn Portuguese. It's an excellent program. The accommodation was basic but good, we came and went as we pleased and the hostesses were very kind.
