Eton Institute to offer free Portuguese (Brazilian) courses during the month of January. The Dubai-based Institute offers an entire beginner level of a featured language FREE every month as part of their CSR initiative and commitment to giving back to the community.
Dubai, UAE -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/23/2009 -- Eton Institute, Dubai’s leading institute for training and development located at Dubai Knowledge Village announced that they will be offering free Portuguese language course this January as part of their CSR initiative. The course which covers an entire beginner level in the Brazilian dialect of Portuguese will be offered absolutely free to anyone interested in learning this popular romance language.
Recent initiatives to instate Portuguese as an official language of the United Nations have brought this commonly spoken language in the global limelight. With over 200 million native speakers worldwide, Portuguese is spoken as a first language more often than French, German or Italian.
Dr. Eli Abi Rached, Director, Eton Institute commented: “The Portuguese language deserves global prominence and attention not only because of its widespread use but also because of its rich literature. The Brazilian writer Olavo Bilac summed it up perfectly when he described the language as: ‘última flor do Lácio, inculta e bela’, the last flower of Latium, wild and beautiful.”
The free Portuguese course will be conducted at Eton Institute during the month of January. Details about the registration and course dates will be announced through the Institute’s Facebook and Twitter pages to their fans and followers.
