Course Overview

Guernsey’s Portuguese community has grown significantly over the years and has integrated into the island’s population. Our Beginner classes will help you learn basic phrases as well as grammar, speaking, listening, reading and writing skills to help you to communicate with Portuguese people in Guernsey or if you visit Portugal.

We offer three levels for Portuguese learners: Beginners, Elementary and Intermediate, each of which will cover grammar, speaking, listening, reading and writing skills at the appropriate level.

If you can only attend a certain day, contact us and we will see what other options we can give you.
