In depth: Our Portuguese Courses for Business in Bournemouth

1:1 and Group Portuguese Courses in Bournemouth

You have a choice of either a 1:1 or group sessions. Most of our clients use 1:1, however the group sessions can also be of good value. The group session numbers should be kept to 6 or less for the teacher to give good quality 1:1 time to each student. Those who take the 1:1 course will experience quicker progression as the lessons can be fully tailored to your every need.

Portuguese Course Management

Each course at SIMON & SIMON is overseen by one of our highly professional, experienced and multi-lingual Account Managers. Prior to the course you are sent a profile of your Portuguese teacher stating their experience and background which is then followed by a Course Plan, course materials and a Progress Report after every 30 – 40 hours of training.

Portuguese Course Locations & Schedules

We have a global network of language trainers enabling us to arrange your Portuguese course in almost any major European city, or even further abroad. You have the option of your Portuguese language lesson taking place in the comfort of your own home or at your office to minimise travel.

Bournemouth Portuguese Course Schedules

Our Portuguese courses run throughout the year. The vast majority of our students take part in at least one 90-minute lesson a week but many will attend more than one session, if work commitments allow. The Portuguese programmes run between 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday. Our lessons are also available at weekends on request. We also run intensive Portuguese language courses which are 30 hours per week, 6 hours a day, Monday to Friday. This can be held on clients’ premises or at a residential centre in within Bournemouth.

Portuguese Course Content

Before you start your course you will be assessed on your level of Portuguese and we will discuss what you would like to focus on. Your ultimate goal may be to just gain every day Portuguese skills or it may be more advanced like gaining the ability to discuss banking, finance or marketing. Whatever your goals or needs, SIMON & SIMON provides experienced Portuguese language trainers that will help you achieve your goal quickly.

Portuguese Language Examination Courses

We can provide support in preparing for your Portuguese language examinations as well as any other type of Portuguese language examination. We are extremely proud of the 95% pass rate of our students in language examinations and we believe this shows the value of working with Portuguese teachers with above-average experience. SIMON & SIMON can also register you for your examination, administer the examination and issue your results.

About Portuguese

Portuguese is a Romance language developed from Galician-Portuguese that was spoken in the medieval Kingdom of Galicia. It is an official language of the European Union, the Organisation of American States, the African Union, and Lusophone countries. With around 240 million speakers, Portuguese is the sixth-most spoken language in the world. Portuguese is the official language of Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Mozambique. According to estimates by UNESCO, Portuguese and Spanish are the fastest-growing European languages after English and the language has the highest potential for growth as an international language in southern Africa and South America.

About Bournemouth

Bournemouth is a large coastal resort town in the county of Dorset, England. According to the 2001 Census the town has a population of 164,900, making it the largest settlement in Dorset. It is also the largest settlement between Southampton and Plymouth. With Poole and Christchurch Bournemouth forms the South East Dorset conurbation, which has a total population of approximately 400,000. Founded in 1810 by Lewis Tregonwell, Bournemouth’s growth accelerated with the arrival of the railway, becoming a recognised town in 1870. Originally part of Hampshire, it joined Dorset with the reorganisation of local government in 1974. Since 1997 the town has been administered by a unitary authority, meaning that it has autonomy from Dorset County Council. The local authority is Bournemouth Borough Council. Bournemouth’s location on the south coast of England has made it a popular destination for tourists. The town is a regional centre of business, home of the Bournemouth International Centre and financial companies that include Liverpool Victoria and PruHealth. In a 2007 survey by First Direct Bank, Bournemouth was found to be the happiest place in Britain with 82% of people questioned saying they were happy with their life.
