Learn Portuguese in Lisbon, Portugal



Learn Portuguese in Lisbon and discover Lisbon, Portugal’s hilly capital. This beautiful city is located on the Western coast of Portugal and stretches along the banks of the River Tejo, towards the Atlantic Ocean.

Lisbon is full of history and culture, and anyone who wants to learn the Portuguese language in this fascinating city, will find something to see and do. As the city edges away from the river's banks, visitors will find a maze of cobbled streets and limestone buildings leading towards key attractions such as the imposing São Jorge Castle, where you will find amazing views over the city. Approaching the heart of Lisbon you will find the city's main street, the Avenida da Liberdade, a wide boulevard lined with leafy trees, upmarket hotels and designer shops.

Well known for its relaxed way of life, mediterranean climate and cafe culture Lisbon is a great city to explore at leisure, of course stopping along the way for a traditional 'pastel de nata' or two in one of the many pavement cafes!
