This is the third year that the University of Toronto has offered a summer course in Portugal. This program provides a unique opportunity for students to experience the language, culture and history of Portugal in one of the safest and most vibrant cities in Europe. Portuguese is spoken by about 250 million people, making it the fifth most spoken language in the world. Whether students have studied another Latin language, want to practise their Portuguese language skills or want to learn a new language altogether, this language course is tailored to meet students’ specific learning objectives.
The program is taught by the Instituto de Cultura e Língua Portuguesa (ICLP), a branch of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Lisbon, which is located in downtown Lisbon.
