Class arrangement during COVID-19 The COVID-19 situation may still be fluid and constantly affect class arrangements in the coming months. The health and safety of our students will always be our top priority. To ensure that students’ academic progress is not affected, the School may substitute face-to-face classes with online teaching if necessary in the event that face-to-face classes cannot be held. Our respective Programme Teams will contact the students concerned with details of such arrangements as necessary. - Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis. - Applicants who wish to apply in person at HKU SPACE Enrolment Centres MUST contact the Programme Team in advance. - Online Enrolment is acceptable and the Programme Team will ask you for a copy of evidence, if necessary. - No refunds or transfers to a different class will be approved. - Course will be confirmed subject to sufficient enrolment. - A detailed schedule will be emailed to every student before class commencement.


This short course links our Certificate in Portuguese (Introductory) with the follow-on level Certificate in Portuguese (Intermediate) and gives students a chance to keep in contact with the language over the summer months. Students will review several aspects of Portuguese culture and will practice the four skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. There will be a relaxed and supportive learning environment and the course is not exam-based. Among the topics covered are the following:

- Muito prazer! (personal information, family, free time activities)
- Trabalho muito (daily life, routines)
- Faça exercício! (seeing the doctor, giving advice and instructions)
- Uma viagem inesquecível (travel and past experiences)
- Quando eu era criança (comparing the past and the present) 

Programme Details

  • Swapping between parallel groups (if any) is not allowed under any circumstances.
  • No make-up classes will be offered for students’ absence.
