Welcome to Portugal! After two years confronted with unprecedented challenges to mobility and the regular pursuit of our activities, we are back to resume what is our trademark Portuguese language summer course: PILC (Portuguese Intensive Language Course). Reenergized, we wish to offer our students an unforgettable learning experience combining a happy mix of collegiality, classes and tours at a university campus surrounded by lush greenery and stunning iconic views of Lisbon.

Here, at the Language School of the Institute for Social and Political Sciences (Universidade de Lisboa) we have a long tradition of hosting Portuguese language courses for Erasmus and international students of all ages from all around the world. If you wish to take a course that is more than just a language course but an experience in culture, history and the Portuguese way of life, the PILC is definitely your choice. We prepare international students to accommodate to our language and cultural aspects so that their stay at our country can be enjoyable and profitable.

Our Language School is part of a centenary institution that takes pride in its tradition of foreign language teaching. Indeed, we are very experienced in hosting specific Portuguese Language Courses for Erasmus and international students. We have semester-long courses and intensive courses for those who wish to start learning the language, and we specialize in offering a choice of courses that also focus on the Portuguese heritage and cultural aspects in order to help Erasmus and other international students accommodate better to the particulars of their host country.

The PILC is an intensive course catering for Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) A1 level of language learning. It focuses on the acquisition of everyday vocabulary at the transactional level (language used for real communication purposes) and of the fundamentals of grammar besides paying attention to the cultural background of Portuguese living and socialization. This enables the PILC to be an excellent tool to facilitate the adaptation of foreign students to both Portuguese language and culture. The fact that the course takes place just before the official beginning of the first semester is closely connected to this integration need.

The vast numbers of students who have taken this course over the years measures our success!
