Certificates and Diplomas
When you complete your Portuguese course, you'll receive a "Diploma in Brazilian Portuguese Language"
BEM-VINDO is the best book to learn Portuguese language. It is the most practical,efficient and easy method of Portuguese language learning. Moreover, the book include 04 audio CDs,which allow you a exact pronunciation. You will be able to speak very well Portuguese, since the first class,and understand it in a short time.
We use the communicative approach to teach our students and it is a flexible method rather than a rigorously defined set of teaching practices. Learning a new language is easier and more enjoyable when it is truly meaningful. Below you'll see some characteristics of our teaching method:
1. An emphasis on learning to communicate through interaction in the target language.
2. The introduction of authentic texts into the learning situation.
3. The provision of opportunities for learners to focus, not only on language but also on the learning process itself.
4. An enhancement of the learner’s own personal experiences as important contributing elements to classroom learning.
5. An attempt to link classroom language learning with language activities outside the classroom.
As these features show, the communicative approach is concerned with the unique individual needs of each learner. By making the language relevant to the world rather than the classroom, learners can acquire the desired skills rapidly and agreeably.
