Just Landed (0 – A1)
Beginners (A1)
Intermediate / Intermédio (A2)

LANGUAGE LEVELS A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 AND C2
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) divides learners into six levels:
A1 Breakthrough or Beginner
Can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type. Can introduce him/herself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has. Can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.
A2 Waystage or Elementary
Can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). Can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. Can describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
B1 Threshold or Intermediate
Can understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc. Can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken. Can produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. Can describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes & ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.
B2 Vantage or Upper Intermediate
Can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation. Can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. Can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
C1 Effective Operational Proficiency or Advanced
Can understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning. Can express him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. Can use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. Can produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.
C2 Mastery or proficiency
Can understand with ease virtually everything heard or read. Can summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation. Can express him/herself spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in the most complex situations.

Immerse yourself in a Portuguese speaking residency for a full four days! Alongside formal lessons, activities will include working together on the quinta, cooking together, leisure time by the river, and some local sightseeing – all designed to give you the most useful everyday vocabulary whether you are moving to or already living in Portugal!
During the Portuguese Language Residency we use a teaching methodology that allows students to hear and speak throughout the entire day. This is a very effective way to improve the learning-teaching process.
The student starts speaking Portuguese from the first minute, using the Portuguese language as the main means of communication and applying it during the majority of the residency.
The student shouldn’t be worried about not understanding the full conversation initially because the learning process is designed to flow the way you learned your mother tongue, naturally and gradually.

Day 4 - Intensive Portuguese Language Residential - Intermediate Level

No quarto dia os nervos estavam à flor da pele por causa das apresentações finais que cada uma teria de fazer.

No final todas fizeram um excelente trabalho graças ao empenho e persistência que tiveram durante toda a residência.
Parabéns a todas, até breve!!




















Day 3 - Intensive Portuguese Language Residential - Intermediate Level

No terceiro dia começamos o dia com uma aula de Chi Gung and Yang Style Tai Chi com Trevor Taylor a quem agradecemos a disponibilidade.
Trevor e Jasmine Itter tem feito um trabalho notável em Portugal a diversos níveis e podem acompanhar o seu trabalho aqui:

Ainda no terceiro dia fomos visitar o Lagar de Azeite "Casa do Cabo" em Cortiçô
Foi uma visita muito interessante e adorámos ouvir falar sobre o lagar, o azeite, a região e a história.
Gostámos muito e comprovámos a excelente qualidade do azeite, a quem agradecemos especialmente a José Ângelo e à sua família. Obrigado pela visita e excelente receção.


O Lagar de Azeite da "Casa do Cabo", situa-se em Cortiçô - Fornos de Algodres, na Rua do Cemitério, junto a uma casa de habitação com algumas caraterísticas solarengas, designada "Casa do Cabo", outrora pertencente aos "Magalhães".
Esta Região e, em especial, Cortiçô, possui caraterísticas edafo-climáticas únicas que lhe permitiram, ao longo de séculos e até milénios, fazer prosperar o olival e a produção de azeite de altíssima qualidade. Estas marcas históricas podem confirmar-se nos seculares troncos das oliveiras, alguns deles esventrados de lenha pelo rigor dos elementos e pelo incontável número de Janeiros em que gerações de homens e mulheres as despojaram dos seus preciosos frutos.
Foi assim que, há muitos séculos, associado à exploração agrícola dos senhores da "Casa do Cabo", nasceu o lagar de azeite com o mesmo nome. 

 Em 1966/67, quer pelo fato de os caseiros deixarem de residir na Casa, quer, sobretudo, pelas exigências higio-sanitárias (proibição da tração animal na obtenção da moenda), às quais os então proprietários, talvez por dificuldades económicas e claro desinteresse, não conseguiram adaptar-se, o Lagar encerrou as suas portas, acontecendo o mesmo a um outro existente na localidade, deixando uma aldeia com grandes tradições olivícolas, desprovida dos seus principais pilares da economia local.
Foi em 1993 que o atual proprietário o adquiriu. Estava abandonado, com a maioria das peças fora do seu lugar e dispersas e perdidas pelo espaço circundante, tendo servido de estábulo de animais e abandonado ao ponto de parte da cobertura já ter ruído.
Os anos que se seguiram foram decisivos para este ícone da História da Produção de Azeite. Com enorme dedicação e estoicismo, foi reposta e melhorada a cobertura, as peças dispersas reagrupadas e recolocadas nos respetivos lugares, o madeirame foi limpo e tratado, culminando o processo de musealização com uma profunda limpeza geral. Parecia outro, apesar de algumas peças terem desaparecido para todo o sempre, sem possibilidades de substituição credíveis.
Desde então e até à presente data, o Lagar tem sido alvo de constantes melhorias e também de várias visitas de estudo por parte de escolas de diversos pontos do País, especialmente daquelas cujos Srs. Professores conhecem a Região e são sensíveis às questões etno-culturais.
Em 2010, após ter sido efetuado um avultado investimento na preservação e melhoria do olival tradicional que integra a exploração agrícola adquirida, inicou-se a construção de um Lagar de Azeite que, embora da tipologia vulgarmente conhecida por "Lagares de Quinta", encerra o que de tecnologicamente mais avançado existe no processamento de azeitona e extração de azeite.
Este novo lagar é contíguo ao acima referido, permitindo que visualmente se confontem e comparem séculos de história e de tradições na produção de azeite.
Culminando todo este processo e confirmando a tese de que esta localidade está, desde tempos remotos, ligada à olivicultura e à produção de azeite, foi descoberto, apenas a cerca 60 metros deste local, um lagar de azeite datado do Sec. I D.C., ou seja do período da ocupação romana, que, pacientemente, aguarda uma intervenção arqueológica por parte das entidades públicas, dado que se situa numa via pública, em local então estrategicante preservado. Talvez um dia, as agora dificuldades financeiras sejam debeladas, possibilitando a valorização e disponibilização ao público de tais vestígios.
Como poderá verificar-se, estamos perante 2000 anos de história do azeite e do olival.
Prevemos que, a muito curto prazo, estaremos a engarrafar o azeite de altíssima qualidade aqui produzido, certamente com certificação DOP, levando às pessoas e ao Mundo, em cada uma das garrafas, um pedaço de ruralidade e de sonho.
Definitivamente, transformamos azeitona não só em azeite, mas também em História e histórias, que são a essência e a Alma do Povo que a produz.
