Studying Portuguese in Lisbon: Onde e Quanto

There are loads of ways to learn Portuguese, (we recommend going to a bar or just standing in line at the grocery store) but really, the best way is with a little help from the professionals.

If you’re looking for a proper school around Lisbon to aprender de falar, you might want to keep reading. If you want to learn to surf and speak, you’re in luck…if it’s spring. We’ve done the research for you so you can compare prices and offers all in one place. Boa sorte, amigo.
