English to Lithuanian
I have decided to learn Portuguese. Could anyone give me a piece of advice of the best schools in Portugal for the beginner level where Portuguese is taught in English? In terms of quality of the studies (I just do not want to "have a good time" - I want to learn and to learn on an intensive schedule). How much a good course for some 2-3 months may cost? Just have no idea

I don't think you'll find Portuguese taught in English here in Portugal.
Actually, the best way to learn a language (in this case the Portuguese) is to learn it in the original.
Here in Portugal we've got schools that teach "Portuguese for foreigners".
I can't really tell you which is the best school, but "Alliance Française" and "Cambridge School", for instance, also provide courses of Portuguese for foreign learners.
Here you've got a link with some of the school that have that kind of courses:
You can also make a search of schools by googling "português para estrangeiros" (portuguese for foreigners) and "escolas de línguas" (language schools).
Let me know if you still have any doubt and I'll be glad to help you out.

Depending on your case, you would try learn on-line using Skype/MSN. I´ve tried this to learn English, and it worked very well...
(And, It´s less expensive)

I think you'll end up learning more of the language if the class is actually conducted in Portuguese from the beginning, even if you don't know a word of it. Plus, the people in your class may all be from different backgrounds, sharing no common language other than the one being taught.
There are quite a few language schools in Portugal. I went to one in Lisbon called PortLingua for a month and my comprehension and fluency sky-rocketed!
