J'ai retrouvé la même école qu'en 2000. Même niveau de sérieux de la part des professeurs du CIAL qu'en 2000. Ecole à recommander avec peut être une restriction, pour que le séjour linguistique soit profitable je recommanderai d'arriver avec un niveau correct de connaissances basiques. Quant à Lisbonne, c'est une ville formidable.En conclusion, j'ai apprécié tout à fait ce stage et je pense renouveler ce type de stage pour recyclage de la langue. J'ai apprécié tout particulièrement les visites culturelles organisées par l'école. Son représentant, Miguel est vraiment très compétent. J'ai apprécié cette école et tout particulièrement Maria notre professeur. OK pour l'appartement partagé. Merci Miguel. Merci ESL pour tout. Maintenant, je reviens à la langue russe où j'ai un objectif d'obtenir le niveau B1. Je suis allé à Moscou et St Pétersbourg (trois fois en tout) et je compte y revenir en 2020 pour le niveau B1.(avec Liden&Denz et ESL)

« Oui. Ayant déjà fait le niveau A2 en août 2000, il était nécessaire de reprendre toute la grammaire du niveau A2 qui est la base de la grammaire portugaise. Si j'étais resté une semaine de plus j'aurai continué avec le niveau B1.J'ai fait en fait trois semaines de cours standard soit 45heures de cours. J'estime que c'est correct et je peux parler portugais correctement à nouveau. Je pense à aujourd'hui revenir à Lisbonne en 202 pour faire le niveau B1. »

Der Kursort, resp. das Kurslokal war ideal und gut erreichbar. Portugal als Land habe ich in all meinen Besuchen geschätzt und die Einwohner sind freundlich und hilfsbereit. Nach drei Wochen habe ich keinen Abschluss A1 gemacht. Die multikulturelle Gruppe war sehr angenehm. Maria Céu Nobre bewohnt alleine ein Appartement. Sie war mir eine wertvolle Begleiterin und immer hilfsbereit. Grossartige Organisation. Sogar Fahrtickets und Eintritte waren offeriert.

Walter Villarreal
Walter Villarreal
CIAL, Lisbon
Duration: 2 weeks

Thanks to ESL, I achieved the dream of all language students: living in the country where the language they are studying is spoken. I had a wonderful stay, from my arrival in Lisbon until my departure. I was immersed in the language on a 24-hour basis: when speaking, writing, reading, talking to the locals, discovering their culture and in the various situations of everyday life (shopping, contacts with administration, arrival at the airport, etc.). It was very useful and rewarding. Once on site you realise how difficult the local economic situation is. As you may know, the economic crisis is still going on in Europe. This trip allowed me to talk directly to Portuguese people and see how they are dealing with the crisis in such a difficult context. Regarding the school, it is well located. The teacher is very competent. Thanks to her, I made a lot of progress in Portuguese and I would like to thank her for that and my group as well.

I met people who shared my interest in the Portuguese language, it was great. They had different accents (English, French, German among others). I was the only one who came from Latin America, and the only one from Argentina. When my classmates heard that I was from Patagonia, Argentina, they started asking me lots of questions about major tourist sites in my country (ex. Perito Moreno Glacier, Ushuaia, San Carlos de Bariloche, the whales in Puerto Madryn, etc.) during breaks. I was surprised to see how much they knew about Argentina and I felt proud to represent my dear Patagonia. Thanks to my language course, I made new friends and established contacts all over the world. Thanks again! I hope to go on another trip soon if the context is still favourable in my country.

Just like the Portuguese language, Lisbon has a charm of its own. I have been learning this language for a year in my free time and last summer, I spent four weeks in Lisbon thanks to ESL. The CIAL school organised many extra-curricular activities, most of which were free. I can only recommend this experience in Lisbon, at this school.

Lisa Evripidou
CIAL, Lisbon
Duration: 2 weeks

I spent 2 weeks in CIAL Lisbon, Portugal and loved every moment of it. The only regret I have is not staying longer. It was my first time studying abroad and I highly recommend it to everyone. It's a great way to learn any language quickly. I never stopped practising Portuguese, if it wasn't in a classroom, it was among my classmates at a local cafe or on a social activity organised by the school. The social programme was very good and I am happy I took part in so many excursions. It was a great way to explore Lisbon from local people and not from a tour guide! I was also very impressed as all trips were free including students travel to the site. The best part of my study abroad were the teachers, they were very helpful and intelligent. I will defiantly be visiting CIAL Lisbon in the near future.

Host family
Host family accommodation is by far the best way to learn a language and discover a culture beyond a tourist's perspective. The friendly families chosen by CIAL live 15 to 30 minutes from the school by public transport. You will stay in a single room with breakfast provided, speaking Portuguese with your hosts in total immersion. There's no better way to improve your language skills outside of class!

Shared apartment
Ideally located in a quiet residential area 15 minutes’ walk from the school, the shared apartment is for the exclusive use of CIAL students. It includes seven bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, three shared bathrooms, a living area with a TV and a balcony. Staying in a single or shared room, you will be near the beautiful Gulbenkian Foundation gardens and have access to a wide range of nearby restaurants, cafés and shops. There is free Wi-Fi, and bed linen and bath towels are provided. The apartment is cleaned once a week and there are laundry facilities on-site.
