At the beginning of the Portuguese studies we offer very intensive language lessons for the students who don’t speak the Portuguese language. After the history of Portugal and the Portuguese word, Brazil and PALOP (Portuguese Language Speaking African) countries, we initiate the students to the literature do Portugal and the Portuguese speaking countries and offer courses about the different cultural aspects of these countries. In our specialized courses the students can get to know the cinema, theatre, music and fine arts of Portugal and Brazil.
