The School


 - Our Portuguese language school is equiped with wireless internet, a computer for student use, a small library, a self study lounge, a reception area with a coffee machine, a tea kettle and occasionally some Portuguese pastry! All our classrooms benefit from direct sunlight and are modern and airy.


 - All our teachers have a degree in Portuguese language teaching by Faculdade de Letras (Universidade do Porto) and are trained at Oficina de Portugues in order to follow our own method and materials while teaching Portuguese.They are all student centered, communicative and focused professionals. Our common purpose is to plunge with you into the Portuguese language and culture. We all work together to provide you with the best Portuguese course ever!


 - Communication based. It privileges role-plays, learning activities in a real context (street; cafes; markets), conversational skills as well as reading, writing and hearing skills. Student focused.

Grammar is considered important however it is rarely the core of the Portuguese classes, unless students want to focus on a particular issue. Our levels are based upon the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Have a look at our level chart here. Most of our class materials are made by OdP's staff and therefore fits the needs of our students.


 - The school is located in a renewed building in the most important commercial street in Porto, Rua de Santa Catarina! We’re 5 minutes away from the nearest Metro Stations, Bolhão or Trindade, and 10 minutes from São Bento train station. You can easily get to the river district, Ribeira, in a 15 minute walk!
