Founded in 1959, CIAL has been organising Portuguese Language Courses for more than 40 years, being the first language school in Portugal to have a year round offer of courses at all levels.Our mission is to preserve the CIAL’s reputation as one of the top language schools in the world, and we have the privilege of inviting thousands of students to our school every year.

Located either in Faro or Lisbon, students have the unique opportunity to find a real-life international setting with more than 1200 students from over 50 different countries annually. CIAL students learn from 18 to 80 years old, and they are motivated by as varied a goal as learning a foreign language or seeking advancement in their careers.

The CIAL education experience, which incorporates quality, versatility, and friendliness, combines with our commitment to the main mission—providing students with a well-rounded experience through our extensive activity program and carefully chosen accommodations.

Courses at CIAL are fully aligned with the Common European Framework for Languages (CEFR) and are recognised and accredited internationally and locally. Members of the teaching team have been involved in producing textbooks and other materials for more than 30 years. These materials are published and became the leading teaching materials for Portuguese worldwide.

The school has 18 classrooms spread between two buildings in Saldanha Picoas. Buildings are within a five-minute walk of each other.

The language school CIAL Centro de Linguas launched in Lisbon in 1959.
