Course Overview


Portuguese Level 16 is an Intermediate course for students who have studied the Portuguese language to a fairly high level. Portuguese Level 16 requires that you have previously studied Portuguese Level 15 or a course of at least 180 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level then check our levels chart.


Our Portuguese language classes take place at our school in Covent Garden with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. Evening language classes at IH London are dynamic and interactive as the emphasis is on spoken communication, which is achieved through lots of group work and role-plays. At the same time, there is systematic work on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, so that you can improve on all aspects of the language. Your teacher speaks in the target language throughout, so that you can refine your comprehension and listening skills.
