About us

CLCC – Centro de Línguas, Cultura e Comunicação is a private educational institute. Since it was created in 1991, our company grew dynamically, and although the construction was originally completed in two years, the building had to keep growing and improving as well. The architecture of the school building reflects the link between quality, transparency and a close relationship with the customer and their needs.

We offer initial and ongoing training with innovative, modern methods, which meet the high demands of our rapidly changing world. With this support, our clients are able to reach their fullest potential and successfully follow their own path.
Our teachers have academic training and extensive experience in their field of expertise. Together, we strive to be able to achieve the goals we set ourselves and to meet our clients’ educational goals.

CLCC is an educational institute recognized by the Portuguese Ministry of Education, by the Directorate General for Employment and Labour Relations (DGERT) and by the British Council. This guarantees the highest quality and reliability of our service.


Our clients and their needs, demands and desire to develop their knowledge are in the centre of our activities.
