Program Description:

Program Overview CIEE Lisbon

Lisbon is the westernmost capital in mainland Europe, at the point where the Tagus River flows into the Atlantic. The center of Lisbon is built on seven hills, navigated by funicular trains, an elevator, trams, buses, and the metro. The city presents interesting contrasts, from tiny one-of-a-kind shops with fading facades, to mega malls; from narrow, steep, cobbled-stoned streets to wide-open vistas. Lisbon's fascinating past can be glimpsed in the faces of its multicultural citizens, its food, its architecture, and its welcoming attitude towards foreigners.

Program Focus

This program is designed for students of all levels of Portuguese, beginner to advanced. Beginning and intermediate students can start their Portuguese training or strengthen their existing skills while taking content courses in English. Advanced Portuguese students are able to directly enroll in university courses in Portuguese alongside local and other international students. The range of courses available appeals to students with a strong interest in the social sciences and humanities and include anthropology, literature, music, politics, and sociology.
