     5:30 – 7:00PM 
Parking: Ample free parking available on Sundays

Fees: Tuition for the classes for adults will remain unchanged at $225 + cost of class materials. Students under 18 years old will receive a 50% discount.

Note: NO CLASSES on January 28th

Class Structure: Classes are taught in a friendly, fun environment where you'll also explore historical and cultural aspects of Portugal. Formal grammar and useful vocabulary are covered, and after completing the course, you'll be skilled enough to order at a restaurant, ask for directions, have basic or more advanced (intermediate / advanced students) conversations about day-to-day subject matters, etc. And one of the best part of attending: meeting great people and making new friends!

Instructor: Dr. Duarte Pinheiro, a native (northern Portugal) speaker who earned his BA and MA at the University of Coimbra, and his PhD at Fernando Pessoa University, is the instructor. Dr. Pinheiro has taught Portuguese language, literature and history throughout his career, including teaching for several years in Italy at two Universities before moving to the United States. He is a Camões Institute lecturer and currently teaches Portuguese at UC Berkeley and San Jose State and is the Assistant Director and Coordinator of the Portuguese Studies Program at UC Berkeley.
