“The best way to learn Portuguese is through fast, fun immersion."

As a sovereign island off the coast of Africa, Cape Verde is one of the safest and cheapest places to learn Portuguese in the world. Students achieve proficiency 3X faster than in an American classroom by combining intensive daily classes with practice around the island.

Aprende is a study abroad experience for students also looking to pick up a Romance language quickly. Go on group excursions once a week in Praia or around the Santiago island, and have at least one meal per day covered entirely by the program cost. Enjoy time after class every day to spend at the beach next door.


1. Learn Portuguese in different parts of the world.

2. Study abroad in beautiful Cape Verde, Brazil, or Portugal.

3. Immerse yourself in the Portuguese language and culture.

4. Go on daily excursions and interact with locals.

5. Have a lot of fun learning a new language and exploring a new place.
