Portuguese (online and face-to-face classes)

Our Portuguese courses follow the blended learning approach; which consists of a combination of face-to-face classes and online/virtual classes. During the first half of the teaching block, students will attend traditional classes at Kingston University and the second half will be online real time interactive (virtual) classes with the language tutor.

At the end of the teaching block there will be two assessments: Reading & Writing and an Oral Assessment.

Please note KLS assessments cannot be rescheduled.
