Thus, the intensive Portuguese course is the ideal option for students who want to learn Portuguese in a short time. This is because it allows you to learn all the subjects of the regular courses in just two weeks. Therefore, it is especially recommended to students who have some free time and want to invest it in studying.

In addition, it is also an excellent option for those who want to get to know Portugal. The format of the course, the schedule and the location of the school will allow you to get to know many places of interest during the course’s duration.

The Caravela School provides students with a detailed touristic plan.

For example, places to visit, how to get there, where to eat, what to do, etc. We also have partnerships with services that may interest students.

Finally, we encourage students and interested people to subscribe to our page on Instagram. This will give you access to lots of interesting information. For example, information on places, useful tips, what we do, etc…

Here’s what students say about classes

 I was learning Portuguese with David in Caldas de Rainha during 2 weeks intensive course. It’s a perfect opportunity for me to improve my language while I’m here on vacations) we had classes every day and I also had some free time for surfing etc. And I think the result is perfect – after two weeks of intensive practice I already can understand and speak with my Portuguese friends  Thanks so much

I thoroughly enjoyed my course at Escola Caravela. As a language teacher and school inspector I had high expectations regarding my lessons and these were met by my teacher David. I learnt a lot very quickly on my intensive course and will try to take another one soon.
