Information About Portuguese Classes at La RetraitePosted on: 12th May 2021
Helena Ferreira is the Portuguese teacher based at La Retraite, currently employed by Camões Institute. Camões is a Portuguese public institute, indirectly managed by the government, operating from Portuguese embassies, consulates and cultural centres all over the world as it is charged with promoting internationally the Portuguese language and culture. It achieves this through partnerships with schools, language centres, academic chairs and lectureships. Here in the UK, we work with over 60 schools and 20 universities and support their educational efforts to provide a broad and balanced curriculum.
This partnership started in 2012 -13 with Ms Ferreira running classes for Portuguese speaking students at the school. She is offering A level classes in the curriculum and after school classes for pre-GCSE and GCSE preparation to Y7-11. She has enabled students to achieve high GCSE and A level grades and to improve the literacy in Portuguese and English of the students who have attended regularly.
From September 2021-2022 Portuguese classes will be offered in the curriculum, as an option, to non-speaking Portuguese students, but talented linguists, so that they can prepare for taking the GCSE Portuguese certificate.
