Lisbon, Portugal’s capital city is one of Europe’s finest jewels. While embracing the rapid transformation brought about by membership of the E.U. and the forthcoming monetary union, the city, reclining over her seven hills, still retains an elegance and charm redolent of her proud past. Linguas e Linguas School of Languages would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors and invite them to share in the delights that Lisbon has to offer.

The school is perfectly situated on the fringes of the Bairro Alto, one of Lisbon’s oldest and best-known neighbourhoods. By day, you will find a tranquil haven from the hustle and bustle of the city, as the elderly residents call across the narrow streets to exchange gossip. Perched on a hill, the area offers expansive views of the rest of the city, the river Tejo idling by, and the hills of Arrabida beyond. As night falls, however, the Bairro Alto reveals another face when the scores of convivial bars and excellent restaurants open their doors, and strangers and locals alike throng to the labyrinth of streets to enjoy the unique and vibrant blend of nightlife.

A mere 2 minutes walk form the nearest Metro station, and amply provided with buses (not to mention the funicular trains creeping up the dizzying inclines), the school’s central location makes it easy to take in the sights and sounds of the heart of Lisbon. Linguas e Linguas offers students the chance to take tours of the city, and can arrange accommodation, from 5-star hotels to family homes. While we specialize in Portuguese for foreigners, courses in English, French, German and a variety of other languages are available.

We all know how expensive school books can be, so we recommend you search for cheap textbooks using sites like Affordabook.com and Amazon Textbooks.

Our teachers provide first-rate, professional tuition in an informal and friendly environment, and take pleasure in guiding students around town, helping them to discover those special corners which the tourist buses pass by, and to find out what it is that makes visitors want to return here, again and again.
