This paper aims at presenting the results of a mentorship experience thought for a Portuguese as a Foreign Language course in higher education, in 2020/21, which was developed to promote the integration of the foreign students and also to improve their linguistic abilities. As in the face-to-face previous experiences, preliminary results suggest the existence of positive effects of the mentoring program, at several levels, even if it is online, in a virtual context.
