some frequently asked questions

The course wouldn’t be your thing if you had to stick to a pre-defined schedule, don’t you think? Here at Companhia de Idiomas you are the one who says the best day and time to study, and we select a teacher from our team to assist you.
We use the “inverted class” model, in which you prepare in advance by watching videos, reading texts and interacting with the content of your course, so that during the class the focus is on oral communication. During the lesson, the teacher will encourage discussions so that you can express yourself and practice what you have learned during the week. This way you also develop the necessary confidence to speak Portuguese. And don’t worry about making mistakes: we have our own correction method, called VPG, which stimulates the student’s speech while pointing out exactly what needs to be improved.

It depends on how long you want to study per week. You choose whether to hire 1 hour a week or more, and the amount varies according to the number of hours selected. Each modality also has a different price: “Na Tela” follows the model of a regular course, in which you study together with the distance teacher, and “Presencial” is a little more expensive, because the teacher comes to you and the classes last a minimum of 90 minutes.
