Portuguese Summer Courses in Portugal

Are you interested in studying Portuguese abroad this summer? Here at the International Language Institute of Massachusetts (ILI), we provide the opportunity to study in Portugal:

  • Portuguese in Lisbon
  • Portuguese in Faro

ILI is an accredited organization and has created great partnerships with other small language schools around the world.

We choose schools that we have visited, where we have sent students who have had a positive experience and where we know and trust the directors. 

In exchange for recommending the schools, ILI receives a commission on the cost of your tuition, which we put towards our Free English Program for Immigrants and Refugees. You would pay the same price if you went directly to the school, but by studying on a Spanish summer course with ILI, you’re also helping others.

If you are interested in improving your language skills through a summer Portuguese course abroad, get in touch with us. We can help find the right school and experience for you.

Check Your Portuguese Level

Unsure of the level you are at in the language you want to learn? Don’t worry, we are here to help.

Ask Samira for an assessment in the language you are interested in. She will arrange an appropriate instructor to assess you in a 10 to 15-minute conversation, and then when you register for a course, we can place you in the class that will be best for you.

If you are a zero-level beginner, you’ll start in our Level 1 class, so need for an assessment.
