We present our new method for teaching Portuguese as a Foreign Language to adult and young learners - Português a Valer!
As the successor to our bestseller Português XXI, Português a Valer is dedicated to all those who for over twenty years have relied on this same method to learn and teach Portuguese throughout the world.
Supported by LIDEL`s 33 years of experience in developing materials for teaching PFL and based upon the wide experience of our authors, Ana Tavares, author of Português XXI, and Sofia Rente, author of Verbos no Passado e Expressões Idiomáticas Ilustradas, we are proud to present, in 2022, the method that is modern and up-to-date, while maintaining the solid foundations of its predecessor.
