Our participants can do their practice in certified practical training centres and/or in companies. The language barriers are always taken into consideration and all program is developed in straight cooperation with sending organization.
Linguistic and Cultural Program
Introduction to Portuguese and Cultural Trips
The language can be a big barrier while doing a mobility abroad. For that reason we organize linguistic courses to all our benefeciaries and participants. With this our participants have an introduction to the Portuguese language in which they learn important words and sentences which will allow them to feel more integrated in the Portuguese society and to communicate with Portuguese people while doing their practice.
Portugal a small country with a huge diversity at all levels. EPD organizes several cultural trips where participants can taste the diversity of Portugal, see different monuments and patrimony, taste different food and feel the sun that shines all Year around!
