The Portuguese as a Foreign Language courses (PFL) have been organized by the Faculty of Arts since 1934. In the last few years, more than 30,000 students from the world over have attended these courses.
The project LeCIEPLE aims at building a Portuguese Learner Corpus (Portuguese as a foreign Language / Second Language - PFL/L2) which may provide support to research, teachers' training and didactics. This resource also intends to establish the linguistic profile of PFL/L2 learners, which can be used both in teaching and in assessing competences.
The ICLP offers a Portuguese as a Foreign Language course to foreign students in the Erasmus programme.
