The Crash Courses in Portuguese are perfect if you're setting up a new life in the Algarve
Learn to speak Portuguese. Beginner to advanced courses with focus on oral communication. In-person and online classes, group and individual classes. French, German, Russian, Spanish and English courses also available at Faust Language School.
If you've moved to the Algarve and want to improve your Portuguese skills, Faust is the place for you.
Located between Vilamoura and Almancil, Faust Language School is officially recognized by the Portuguese Ministry of Education. At Faust, courses are offered in a range of languages and for a range of ages. There are courses for expats in the Algarve wishing to learn Portuguese, as well as courses in other languages - German, French, Spanish, Russian and English.
At Faust, the emphasis is on communication. The teaching methods used promote natural learning, as a child might, first listening and speaking followed by the written word, unlike conventional methods which generally start with writing to the detriment of speaking. Language is for communication, and by promoting a natural learning process, students at Faust gain confidence in their ability to communicate in their new language, rather than feeling unprepared or embarrassed when the chance to converse presents itself.
