Study Portuguese In The Azores
Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center is organizing a three-week Portuguese language immersion program in the Azores for July 2011
By: Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center
The package price for 20 days in the Azores is just €1.995,00 euros (double occupancy) and €2.495,00 euros (single occupancy). The price includes transfers from and to the airports, accommodations, classes (16 hours of instruction)
Maria Oliveira, owner of Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center, was educated in Portugal, the U.S. Mexico and Madrid, Spain. She has a B.A. in Portuguese and Spanish and an M.A. in Spanish from California State University, Sacramento. She is also a credentialed instructor for California Community Colleges and has extensive teaching experience in high schools, adult education, community colleges, and in the UC system. Maria is also Director of the Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center in Pinole, California, which offers courses in Portuguese, Spanish, French, Mandarin, and English for non-native speakers.
As a language program specialist, she develops conversational and technical educational materials which consist of CDs, workbooks, and online courses that allow anyone to learn to speak Portuguese or Spanish on their own. Being a most enthusiastic instructor who loves teaching, Maria makes sure that her students learn. While they are learning, they enjoy and gain an appreciation for the language and the culture.
Maria has issued two CD's entitled European Portuguese Vocabulary Volume 1 and European Portuguese Vocabulary Volume 2, which are two courses designed for convenient self-study in preparation for the July language immersion trip to the Azores. They are useful, too, for augmenting any ongoing Portuguese language studies.
An Open House will be conducted at the Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center on April 16, 2011, from 3:00 P.M to 6:00 P.M. Questions about the Azores trip, and about any programs offered at the Center, will be addressed. This is a free event open to any interested language learner, but anyone planning to attend should make a reservation.
