It’s so different from Sweden!
I loved my time in Lisbon! The most interesting thing when staying in a capital of a country is the variety of things that you can do, see and experience. Well Lisbon exceeded my expectations! Lisbon, also called the “7 Hill City” or “Lx” is a perfect mix of modern buildings and traditional architecture. Even if you walk 24 hours a day you will always find something to see and do in this never-sleeping city!
One thing that you will notice right away as you set foot in the city is the seafaring influence. It is found everywhere, from the architecture of the buildings to the monuments and the set up of the streets. In fact, being a coastal city makes of it a wonderful tourist place with several fantastic beaches. The beaches are AMAZING, with golden sand and greenish-blue sea and perfect conditions to practice most water sports. I went to a well-known beach called “Costa da Caparica” and I must say that I loved it. The friendly environment, animated people, hot weather and warm water provided the perfect conditions for an enjoyable time and I actually got a great suntan too!

Both the course of Portuguese in Lisbon and Apple Languages' help in the whole process has been terrific, so I would not doubt about looking for more language courses abroad with Apple Languages.
I had an excellent teacher.
Excellent organisation from start to finish. I would recommend Language Courses Abroad to anyone: friends, family or even colleagues.
The school is OK, it's centrally located and close to the tube station. Teachers are nice and helpful! I would recommend it!
Even though it was only 1 week, I feel that already I have made significant improvements in my Portuguese. I could not have wished for a better family to stay with.
The three hour morning course was excellent. I would repeat this. My host was a delightful lady.
I found that the language school was well organised and the teachers were very professional, and also most helpful and encouraging.
The course was excellent and quite intensive, the teachers I in particular had were really capable, the teaching materials were well-chosen and sufficient, and the atmosphere in general was very good.
Great loved it, learned a lot. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming, looked after us very well.
The course was a real pleasure, though quite a hard work. The teacher was friendly and qualified who managed to motivate and was really successful in doing so.
