VIRTUAL Summer Adult + Children's
European Portuguese Language Class
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily suspended our onsite classes. We are taking our classes virtual using Zoom!
Portuguese is an elegant and beautiful language, and it’s the seventh most spoken language in the world, with over 260 million speakers world-wide.
Do you or anyone you know want to learn or improve speaking, reading, and writing European Portuguese? It's difficult to find European Portuguese classes in the Bay Area that suit the schedules of working professionals, families, and those with a general interest in learning the language.

The answer is our 15-week VIRTUAL SUMMER LANGUAGE COURSE. Our program is popular with families, including children, world travelers, and business professionals. Their reasons for attending range from improving communication with Portuguese-speaking relatives, language skills for travels, and meeting Portuguese citizenship requirements.
Our students learn grammar, pronunciation, phrases, and vocabulary. Classes are taught with a practical focus on basic, daily activities and also cover cultural and historic aspects of Portugal.

"I have yet to encounter a classroom environment in which I can learn a foreign language as quickly and as excitedly as I do in the classes at IDESST.
— A. SCHUT
"The class is connecting me to my childhood, where Portuguese was spoken and how different generations of our family were able to gather and communicate.
