Portuguese Lessons for young teens (12 - 15 years old)

Teenage Group

Our Portuguese course for young teens is ideal for students who wish to learn Portuguese as a non-native language, second language and/or heritage language.


The Portuguese course for young teens favors a communicative approach based on competences and tasks (taskbased), which allows for practical use in a classroom.  Moreover, the coursebooks are filled with current, motivating and interesting themes for young people, promoting continuity and harmonization in the process of teaching-learning.  

It is organised in 3 levels, covering all aspects relevant to the first two levels (A1 and A2) of the European Language Framework. 

Students (12 - 15 years old) learning Portuguese for the first time must start on the Level 1 and, by the end of Level 3 and depending on the teacher assessment, they may be invited to prepare for a Portuguese GCSE.  Alternatively, students can choose to continue their journey by studying at B1 level.
