Caravela in Caldas da Rainha is a Portuguese school for foreigners. It is located in the city center and is the first school of Caravela’s group (the second being in Matosinhos). Caravela has an advanced teaching methodology. Here, students will experience an organized methodology, that easily adapts to their needs. Also, we offer a wide variety of services to suit the availability and desires of the students. The school offers a controlled, step by step, and interactive teaching system, supported by a diversity of didactic materials, adapted to each student. The classes focus on the development of oral comprehension and expression, and the grammar is simplified and focus is given to its practical aspects. Outside the classroom, the students can do exercises for consolidation, oral comprehension and reading. Students are receptive to the method that we use (the communicative method), and they like to use only Portuguese in the classroom. In this way, students begin to speak in Portuguese as early as the first class. Another advantage is working with mini or small groups. It is crucial that in each group, students have exactly the same level. Thus, they improve their skills in a harmonious way. In addition to the classes, we recommend various touristic and social activities outside the classroom, from city tours, group meetings and group meals to tasting regional products, themed meet-ups and visits to various places of interest outside the city, including Lisbon. Finally, we are content makers and we are active on social networks. Therefore, follow us on Facebook and Instagram in order not to miss our posts, articles and news.
