Once Upon a time...

... Iberlínguas was born on August 2011, on a beautiful sunny afternoon, in Marquês of Pombal, right in the heart of Lisbon. We teach Portuguese for Foreigners, Spanish and English. We like our students to feel at home and so we try to make each day a special day.

About us

Over the years, we created a strong, determined and professional team. We have been forming students and making our home into a large family that, little by little, is spreading throughout the world. We strive to be better and bigger every day, but never forgetting to look at each student as a unique being and with particular needs. It is with great pride that we hear the students' first sentences. When we can talk to them about trivial or serious issues, we feel that what we do is not a job, but a passion. We always say goodbye with a hug and somehow, they never go away. They will forever be part of us. And that's what sets us apart: being the great Iberlínguas family.

Bret Adams
English Teacher

"The science of language lends itself to art much more than many other disciplines. Beyond logic and reasoning, there are the words, symbols and ideas that connect us to our most basic desires, hopes and dreams."

Andreia Larsen
Portuguese Teacher

"Learning a language is much more than understanding sounds. It’s crossing a bridge torwards experiencing a language and a culture. So, teaching Portuguese, to me is a “Welcome” in crossing that bridge."

"I dedicate myself with my heart and soul because I belive it is only through devotion that it is possible to teach. I'm attentive to the needs of each student and I try to give the best of me to transform them into acquired knowledge."

David Hall
English Teacher

"A major part of my teaching philosophy is that language learning should be an enjoyable exercise, with lots of interactive activities and discussions. This approach has been proven to be effective by research as it means that students learn more. Plus, the classes are fun to be part of!"

Iris Ceulemen

"Having taught students from all over the world, I love seeing the progress in my students as they achieve their language goals."

João Ribas
Portuguese Teacher

"Teaching is a process done by two people, more than just transmitting knowledge it’s discovering the right way to arrive to it’s destination, without forgetting where one left."

Iberlínguas

Júlia Wagner
Brasilian Portuguese Teacher

"The purpose of a teacher in a classroom is to not only teach but also to transmit the passion of what he’s teaching. The most satisfying moment, is when the student has fallen in love with what he learnt."

Our school, our life!

Iberlínguas school is well located. Next to the metro station. It’s easy to get here. The classroom is quite and nice.

My experience at Iberlínguas has been positive. The staff members and teachers are very nice and helpful. The teachers are dedicated to their students and they have been a great help.

My experience in this course has been very good. In the start it was difficult for me because I didn’t understand my teacher’s accent, but this was helpful to make an effort to improve. In the past, I took a Portuguese course here, so for this reason I’m back for another course, English. I think the way we learn here is very good. I really like that the class group is very small because we have the teacher’s full attention.

With Iberlínguas I learnt to speak a new language, Spanish and now I have improved my knowledge in my English. Classes are fun and helpful. The certificate in the end of the course is very useful in the job market.

As usual, learning English at Iberlínguas was good. The teacher was a very pleasant surprise, always very happy and helpful. The book was also helpful. The teacher’s knowledge of grammar is very good and she knows how to explain and keep the students interested.

My experience at Iberlínguas has been quite enriching. Having learnt Spanish and now English. I’m learning new words and remembering all the grammar I had once learned at school. Iberlínguas is well located in Lisbon and easy to find. The teachers are very kind and dedicated to each student. Very nice experience!!!

It was great studying at Iberlínguas. I learned English in a fun way. It was not tiring. The teacher was very fun and dynamic. She gave us good tips on how to keep learning English at home.

Isto é fantástico 

“Iberlínguas is a wonderful place to start as a total beginner to Portuguese. When I started I didn’t know anything, and after just one semester I can have basic conversations! The teachers are so kind and friendly, it feels more like a family than a school”

“The course is very usefull if you are interested in learning portuguese! Very friendly and good teachers!” 

“Gostei muito deste curso. Tudo foi tranquilo e agradável pois gostei das possibilidades de trocar as lições de acordo com o meu trabalho. Obrigado.” 

“Eu gostei das aulas de português porque eu conheci as amigas que vou manter na minha morada em Lisboa! E depois.” 

“Este curso de Português é a melhor maneira de aprender Português em Lisboa! A nossa professora é muito simpática e ajuda-te sempre com as dúvidas!! Eu quero continuar no próximo curso!” 

“Gostei muito deste curso de português, ajudou-me a falar português durante a vida quotidiana e nas aulas na universidade. Esta escola de línguas é muito boa e os professores são simpáticos e disponíveis.”

“Penso que as classes têm um bom ambiente. Nós falamos bastante durante as duas horas sobretudo das coisas quotidianas que nos servem para poder falar com as pessoas. Gostei muito e melhorei o meu português. Obrigada.”

“The school is well finished. The teacher is very well prepared and available for any need. The course is organized in a linear way.”

Sou aluno do Iberlínguas há 18 meses e estou muito feliz e agradecido com a escolha que fiz. Tudo o que sei da língua portuguesa e da cultura portuguesa aprendi com a Iberlínguas: agora, posso até falar na televisão e fazer discursos em português – todo o mérito é da Iberlínguas. Gostaria de fazer um último comentário – a Andrea Borges é o máximo, ela, sozinha, criou a melhor escola de línguas de Portugal. Parabéns!
