Thanks to Gary for sending me this information.
The course starts in September, and applications need be in by 30th June.
I received this email from Rui, our Portuguese language teacher that we had lessons with previously. He is a really understanding and found him easy to get on with. The course is flexible in that you can drop in/out if you cannot make the full timetable (for those that do not live full time on the island) and there is no exam at the end.
They will run courses if they have enough numbers and it is held in the school in Calheta. If anyone is interested in doing a basic course, submit details before the end of June.
