The methodology used in the classroom places a strong emphasis on communication skills, and is delivered to the student utilizing a multimedia approach. This approach helps bring the Portuguese language to life for the student.. The method can be described as structural/functional, in that the structure and grammar of the language are taught and absorbed naturally through practical usage. All instruction is given in Portuguese and most classes have different teachers to ensure that the student does not become overly accustomed to one voice or accent. Practice in the language laboratory is strongly encouraged so that the student may speak Portuguese clearly, fluently and with a correct accent.
Classes are continuous and progressive from the student's start date, but apart from beginners who must start on specific dates, a student may start their program on any Monday throughout the year. There are six levels of instruction available: beginner, elementary, pre-elementary, intermediate, pre-advanced, and advanced.
