The school is near the centre of Porto and easy to get to. I really enjoyed the classes and learnt a lot in only one week. My teacher Rita was great and took us on a tour of the city one afternoon. I would have liked more activities, but understand that there was only one because there were very few people at the school when I went. Overall, I had a great experience, although there is not much space in the school besides the classrooms and only one toilet, so I don't know what happens when there are more pupils.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
CLASSES - I took a one-week course, 4hrs a day. It totally fulfilled my expectations and needs. I wanted to combine learning with some private time and it was just perfect. 4 hours a day, plus revision of the material and homework in the evening - that was just the amount of the material my head could handle to be ready for the next day ;) Plus, as the course was run in Porto, I had the opportunity to get some practice right away.
TEACHER - I had the chance to meet just one, Renata - and I find myself extremely lucky :) She is professional, energetic and devoted. Also young and with sense of humour ;) Which made the learning experience enjoyable. She did all she could and, to my mind, successfully, made all the group improve and learn, although initially it seemed we were on much different levels. I really feel she made us all break the barrier of speaking making us talk to one another during the lesson, so we learnt the practical use of the language, not just grammar and exercises.
LOCATION - the school is located in the center, easy to access. The classrooms are simple, but there's everything you might need at the language course. Plus the coffee machine ;)
Overall - I would strongly recommend this school. Hope to get the chance to revisit!
I visited the school for 2 weeks and learned a lot. Both weeks i was in a small class (of 3 and then 2 persons.) Angela, the teacher, is very patient, explains well and is very helpful. She has a big knowledge about the city and her country and loves to share her knowledge with her students.
I was there in the week of Easter. So Friday was a public holiday and i thought i'm gonna loose this day, but actually Angela split the Friday in two extra afternoons. That was very nice and generous of her, especially knowing that she had a lot of work this week.
So i can recommend this school to everyone!
I gave the highest score to this school, because the level of teaching was brilliant. In only 2 weeks I learnt more than during 3 moths of classes in Poland. The teacher speaks portugues (obvious), spanish and english so there is no possibility to misunderstood anything.
The classes are really well prepared, and everything is organized in a timely manner.(listening, copies of exercises etc. are always ready at the begiining of the classes)
The pace of the classes is really good, The teacher encourage everyone to take a part in discussions about currect events, culture, local traditions and a lot of other topics,
I chose intensive course (4h/day) but I had a feeling that the time is running much faster, because we had a lot of activities.
Once a week we had a tour in Porto with the teacher and we visited less popular places.
I really recommend Oficina de Portugues to everyone who wants to improve portguese in a such pleasant way.
You won't regret :)
I really enjoyed the Portuguese course. Rita is a very funny teacher with lots of knowledge, and makes classes very fun and interesting. In addition, the group of students is greatly reduced for more effective teaching and the location of the school is excellent in the center of the city. We also did an activity out of school with Rita and went to visit Vila Nova de Gaia; she told us a bit of history about the city and curiosities.
Without a doubt, I will return to do another course at the Portuguese Workshop !!! =)
My teacher was excellent. She is extremely knowledgeable, very supportive and explains things very clearly. Most importantly went out of her way to tailor classes to my needs. I was fortunate enough to have her to myself for most of the two weeks I was there. We spoke Portuguese all the time and I think my comprehension of spoken Portuguese and my confidence in speaking definitely improved. (My level is around B2. )
The academy is bright, modern and attractive with a small room where you can spend your breaks, if you wish. However you probably won't want to as the building is right in the centre of the main shopping area, opposite the temporarily relocated market and next to Rua Santa Catarina. It's also right next to the Metro. I arranged my own accommodation so can't comment on this. There was only one organised outing whilst I was there but this was reasonable given that there were few students. I have no criticisms at all of any aspect of my experience at Oficina de Português and would definitely recommend it.
