The Language and Culture Center (CELINC) offers to our communities courses of foreign languages and Portuguese as a Second Language. All courses at CELINC are built using modern and adapted metrologies, based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)* and the cultural diversity that arises from each different language and land. Those practices enable our students to  achieve their personal and professional goals.


Common European Framework of Reference for Languages

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is an international standard for describing language ability. It describes language ability on a six-point scale, from A1 for beginners, up to C2 for those who have mastered a language. This makes it easy for anyone involved in language teaching and testing, such as teachers or learners, to see the level of different qualifications. It also means that employers and educational institutions can easily compare our qualifications to other exams in their country.
