Olá! Today we will present our Porto Walking Tour service (Walk&Learn), the best option to learn Portuguese in Porto out of classroom and meet Porto at the same time.
Who is Walk&Learn for?
The Porto Walking Tour is for travelers, especially for people who are in Porto for the first time and never learnt Portuguese language before.
Exploring a new city can be more interesting when we can spend time with locals and interact with them. When it happens, the experience becomes richer and we can take more from our time.
Although, we notice that sometimes people don’t have opportunity in the classroom and do a full course. However, they are interested in Portuguese language, culture and lifestyle. Consequently, we created for them the Walk&Learn, a program that allows to travel and Learn Portuguese in Porto at the same time.
How it works this Porto Walking Tour
Walk&Learn focus strictly in what travelers need to “survive” when they have to interact with locals. So everything is learnt in the field, in real situations that students / travelers have to deal with.
Firstly, the day starts with the meeting with the teacher. Teacher will say where you go and which challenges evolving Portuguese language you will meet. During the walk, teacher will tell you everything you know to be well succeed in the next challenge. Teacher will also tell you more about Portugal. Naturally, the teacher will focus more in Porto and its locals.
After you complete the first challenge, you will go to other place where you will have another challenge. Again your teacher will give you what you need be have success and keep telling you more interesting facts.
Walk&Learn is a unique experience because with it you will fill completely immersed in the city’s atmosphere. Then, when you come back, you will have much more to tell to your friends and impress them with your language skills.
Also, our teachers are enthusiastic and easygoing persons, so with us you’ll never be bored. We are used to teach Portuguese language in an interactive way. Often we discuss with our students about contemporary aspects of Portugal, Portuguese people and Portuguese lifestyle, so we know exactly what foreigners are looking for.

Who we are
Caravela School is a Portuguese school for foreigners, located in Matosinhos (Porto region) and Caldas da Rainha (Leiria region).
The most of our students live in Portugal or are planning to move to Portugal. So they really want to start to speak in Portuguese as quickly as possible and know more about practical and contemporary aspects of Portuguese life. Our students start to speak already in the first lesson. As soon as they do it more freely, they start to share them experience in Portugal with us.
However, some of our students are in vacations in Portugal and are eager to take as much as they can from them stay in Portugal. Then, we will be here to make them experience richer, sharing our own experience within and out of classroom.
