The best way to learn Portuguese: fast, fun, immersion.
Explore a beautiful island chain in Cape Verde, “the African islands that the whole world wants to visit” -The Telegraph (UK)
As the point in Africa that is closest to the US, and as a democratic island country in the Atlantic that has been described as “African islands that the whole world wants to visit” (The Telegraph), Cape Verde is one of the easiest and best places to learn Portuguese while gaining exposure to Africa. Students who want to deepen their exposure to Portuguese and to African culture will enjoy this short-term, 3-week program. The program includes both intensive Portuguese language classes and cultural events. Fellows will have plenty of time to explore the culturally-rich hub of Praia and the beaches on the main island of Santiago. If you want to study Portuguese in a short-term, intensive and immersive environment, Aprende provides a unique opportunity to do so for $2999.
“Beyond the strides I made in language learning, the Fellowship was a wonderful time to grow close to other participants, make local friends, and experience the glorious natural beauty of the African islands.”
