I highly recommend this language school. I took the Summer Course last year, and it was absolutely amazibg! The school is run by a passionate team who put all their effort into the education and well-being of their students. Don't hesitate to book!
I spent 4 weeks at Portuguese Connection and really loved it. Classes were small and the teachers were wonderful. Also, classes were always interesting and fun at the same time. I've taken classes at other language schools in Lisbon before, but this one was definitely the best :)
This school is the best! If you're looking for a well-located, extra-friendly and super-competent school to learn Portuguese, search no further, you just found the right place! Obrigado gente, até a próxima!
