TEA Concept

Learning a language should be as simple as an affair

The English Affair (TEA) is a service of private language lessons, supported by a methodology that privileges simplicity, personalization and flexibility in learning.


Just like having tea with a friend.

How to live the TEA experience

More than a service, TEA is a language learning experience: English for Portuguese speakers and Portuguese for English speakers, using informal learning processes within natural settings.

Individual TEA sessions are our most "classic" affair: one-on-one sessions with one of our teachers, to learn the language in a totally personalized and flexible way. These TEA sessions can be in person (while we have tea), online or mixed.

group 1 | The English Affair

Group Classes

These are TEA sessions in groups of up to 4 people with the same level mediated by one of our teachers, to learn the language by interacting and sharing. Just as individual ones, these TEA sessions can be in person (while we have tea), online or mixed.

Exclusive Programs

These are group learning experiences with a very specific focus, aimed at developing concrete language or communication skills. These programs can be online or in person and have limited access due to their specificity

cheers 10 | The English Affair


TEA organizes regular events that bring all our CommuniTEA together, from teachers and students to friends and TEA partners, to socialize, practice the language and exchange ideas in a relaxed informal atmosphere.

Story of an affair

TEA was born in 2013 as a rebellious response to traditional language learning systems, because we believe that everyone is entitled to enjoy the Language as a positive experience. In a very natural way, TEA has been taking its space as a way of being, and over time we have been collecting many friends and many stories to tell.

Despite all the planning and professionalism, our sessions really feel like a conversation between friends, enhancing the mastery of the Portuguese language as a whole, through informal learning processes, in natural contexts where we can have a cup of tea.

Mission – To provide a full set of contexts, processes and tools for a natural and effective learning of the Language

Values – Simplicity, Transparency, Customization and Flexibility

Very fun and interesting concept. Wonderful teacher. Thank you for everything.

Our resident Team

We are a group of rebels who believe that learning English is best in the least conventional way possible, because everyone is entitled to a positive learning experience.
