I took Portuguese classes in Genius Hour during my Erasmus+ scholarship in Porto back in 2015 and I only have kind words for this school and for Inês, my teacher and founder of the school.
The classes were really interesting, dynamic and enjoyable, and there were schedule flexibility and a relaxed atmosphere. There, I attended levels B1 and B2 courses but thanks to the quality of Inês’ teaching I ended up taking a C1 level exam, which I successfully passed.
I wouldn’t have chosen any other language school to learn Portuguese, Inês is a great teacher, always willing to make the learning process as easy as possible and encouraging students with different exercices and activities in her classes. You will learn a lot not only about the language itself, but also about the country, the culture and the food! At the end of the course, more than a teacher, she became a friend. Thank you, Inês and Genius Hour, I will never forget those days!
The place is in a calm area. The classes are very pleasant, detailed and there is an excellent way of teaching. The materials taught cover all what is needed for this level. Nice, young and energetic teachers.
A great opportunity for learning portuguese in a very dynamic way. Also is fixe for meeting international people.
Thank you very much, Genius Hour team, specially to Vanessa.
I believe that the best proof of quality is when students keep on learning, from one level to another. I am already on my third level with Genius Hour and I think that there is only one problem with this school: it’s impossible to choose who is the best teacher!
Diogo is able to transform a class in a family and his lessons are very fun, even if we’re learning grammar. Inês always takes with her the nicest and work-friendly environment and Álvaro knows every Portuguese legends and History, whether is D. Pedro or D. Luís, without mixing them up, which is an impossible task.
I doubt that if I’d go to another school I would have found so many great people or better conditions. All was great: classes, school events (movie and dinners), the schedule, prices and – I hope – the results. Thus, when we have such a good school, I wish that may the force be with us!
I loved the classes. Genius Hour team is incredible. Everyone is always available to clear our doubts. I learnt a lot in a pleasant atmosphere. Thank you for everything.
I really enjoy my Portuguese classes at Genius Hour. We are a small group (5 people) so it is always easy to clear our doubts and to speak about interesting themes. The atmosphere at the school is relaxed: the teachers are nice and we normally have a break where there is coffee and sweets that we can buy and feel well.
My experience at the school was very good! I had lots of fun and I was excited to go to classes. I was enrolled in two different levels (B1 and B2) during my stay in Porto and, without a doubt, this was the best option. I learnt a lot of Portuguese culture and language that was important for my daily routine. The teachers are very good and approachable; they are always ready to help you.
Genius Hour course was very helpful for me. I learnt a lot and the course allows us to learn the language in different ways. Also, the atmosphere, the school and the teacher are very pleasant.
I loved my classes at Genius Hour and, without a doubt, I would choose it again. Classes are dynamic, The teacher (Diogo) is very approachable and the school is very cool! But, most of all, I learnt a lot and now I am more comfortable than I was in Portuguese when I arrived in Porto.
The school is very good and the teachers have a close relationship with students. The classroom atmosphere is relaxed so you have a bigger will to study and learn!
