About Margarida Alberty
gallery/11196295_1388826864778999_8795418882624750051_n

Margarida's School was founded in 1981 by Margarida Alberty, who has dedicated more than 30 years to making learning Portuguese an enjoyable experience for newcomers in Portugal. Margarida developed her own unique way of teaching Portuguese, which sets Margarida's school apart from other traditional language schools.  

 

It all began with her passion for mastering many languages which led her to be fluent in seven. At age 17, influenced by her mother, a Latin and French teacher, Margarida started to give Portuguese lessons to foreigners. She continued teaching while taking a degree in Germanic Languages at the Faculdade de Letras in Lisbon.

 

Margarida initially found students using her contacts at the German School and Embassies : "When I was 20, I was teaching 60 Germans. The then Norweigan ambassador was one of my first students.  This led to an agreement with the Norwegian Embassy which lasted for years" she says.  The school grew as satisfied students spread the word about her fun, dynamic and innovative method.

 

Over three decades later, Margarida's School has around 600 students a year, and 20 teachers teaching 18 different languages.  Going beyond the textbook is what makes learning at Margarida’s School unique. Creative teaching tools, such as board games and flash cards are used to reinforce grammar and vocabulary. Fun activities are organised to help students learn about Portuguese history, poetry, music, customs and culture while having a great time.

 

Although Margarida has retired from teaching, her method continues present through the instructional workbooks she has authored that are used in the small group classes. Today, she has found a new passion for teaching. Every few months out of the year Margarida travels to Cambodia where she teaches English to the underprivileged children of Siem Reap and surrounding areas.  For the last few years Margarida has set up a multi - educational learning centre, Butterly Educational Centre, on the outskirts of Siem Reap with a mission to provide children eductational opportunities not offered in state schools. If you would like to learn more about this initiative visit www.helpchildrencambodia.com
