Online Portuguese Course
Thanks to the technology, it is no longer necessary to live in Caldas da Rainha or to be in Portugal to enjoy our group lessons. With the online Portuguese course you can learn Portuguese in the same way as the students who attend Caravela school.
Online classes are carefully prepared to follow the principles of our school. In this way, the classes are equally dynamic and productive. In addition, it has the advantage of saving time and money. The schedule and frequency are also convenient for most students.
Standard Online Course
The Standard Online Course lasts approximately 60 working hours and approaches the same topics as other courses. It includes 4 lessons (60 min/lesson). In these four classes the student can clarify doubts and discuss the topics studied, correct pronunciation and practice conversation.
The schedule is completely flexible.
The Standard Online Course covers all components of training: oral and written expression and comprehension, grammar and vocabulary, communicative skills and oral interaction. At the end of the course, students obtain a certificate. The price of the course is 140 euros / student.
Online Course in a Mini Group
Like in-school courses, this course can be either intensive or extensive.
The Intensive Online Course is divided into 10 classes of 4 hours with a break of 15 minutes and lasts 2 weeks. Classes run from Monday to Friday, from 9.30 to 13.30 or from 14.00 to 18.00.
The Online Extensive Course is divided into 16 classes of 2,5 hours with a break of 15 minutes and lasts about 2 months. Classes run on Mondays and Thursdays or Tuesdays and Fridays, in the morning (from 10.00 to 12.30), in the afternoon (14.00 to 16.30) or in the evening (from 18.30 to 21.00).

How does the online course work?
Firstly, students receive the necessary material. This material can be printed or displayed on a screen. During the lesson, students will have access to the same resources (images, audio, video, etc …) through online platforms. Right after class, homework is sent by email.
What do I need to get started?
To do the online course, the student only needs three things: a computer or tablet, a good internet connection and a google email account (ex: firstname.lastname@example.org). That’s because the communication is done through Google Hangouts.
In order to have access to other resources, nothing specific is necessary. In this case, the teacher will send links that will allow the student to easily access these resources.
However, if you have any question, please do not hesitate – contact us!
Online Conversation Club
More than 90% of students who come to our school for the first time and who already know some Portuguese complain about the same: lack of practice. We love to talk and we know how to do it with students at different levels. We also know that not everyone is able to attend courses. That’s why we created the online conversation club, where students can practice Portuguese. The conversations focus on daily and pragmatic themes.
A2.2 (advanced beginners): if you are starting to speak but you need more training.
B1.1 (lower intermediate): if you already speak Portuguese, but you need to improve your communicative skills and broaden your vocabulary.
Group: from 3 to 5 students
Price: 5 sessions = 25 euros
