Our internship programs and services in Portugal

Teaching English in Portugal

Our English teaching internship program is a perfect mixture of learning and teaching. It is a great opportunity for a student who is an English native and is interested in learning more about Portuguese culture and language while also gaining valuable work experience.


Our collaborators are language schools who provide flexible teaching positions in different European countries. The classes are scheduled based on the availability of the students. Before the group classes, there will be 1 on 1 sessions held. These sessions will last 30 minutes per session. The students are usually between 25 and 55 years old.

At the beginning of your placement, you will receive training to learn the teaching methods of the institution. The training starts in the first week. Once you have grasped the teaching methods, you will get to teach classes on your own.

The school is multilingual, so you can decide whether you would like to practice Portuguese with your colleagues or students. In addition, the school also gives the interns free Portuguese classes.

This Program Includes:

- Teaching placement
- Insurance
- 4/h Portuguese classes a week

Salary & Payment:

You will receive 300-700 Euros per month (for working 8 hours a day) and you can receive your salary by cash or bank transfer.


We have different destinations that we are offering you. Most common locations are: 

- Lisbon
- Porto
- Coimbra


All interns are responsible for arranging their own accommodation. However, we will assist you by providing details of real estate agencies.

What information should interns provide?

The Portuguese law requires interns to provide a training agreement from their university or educational institution. If you are a graduate, we can inform you on your possibilities. You do not need any Visa, if you are European, if you have access to the Schengen area and if you are a US citizen (staying less than 90 days). In other cases, you will need a Visa. We can provide some documents for your visa application as well as information on the procedure.
