ONLINE PORTUGUESE LESSONS


Do you intend to relocate to Brazil, Portugal, Cape Verde or another Portuguese-speaking territory? Would you like to sing along to samba music and understand the meaning of the lyrics? Are you planning to enter the Brazilian market as an employee or entrepreneur? Then, start learning Portuguese, a language spoken by more than 250 million people worldwide. Contact us at Listen & Learn and we will design a personalised programme for you to study Portuguese online, from the comfort of your home!

 

What you will learn with us

Our online courses suit any need, age or level of proficiency. For example, if you’re an absolute beginner, you’ll begin with a Survival course, where you’ll start getting familiar with the pronunciation and cadence of the language, while learning the vocabulary and grammar necessary to hold a conversation. For example, you’ll learn greetings, (olá, oi, bom dia), requests (alguem podería...?) and ways of saying thank you (muito obrigada/o). The more advanced you become, the more specific your lessons will be, the more complex language skills you will master and the more your teacher will focus on the topics most relevant to you and your needs!

 

More reasons to learn Portuguese

Still haven’t decided if learning Portuguese is worth the effort? You should consider that it is a Romance language (descended from Latin) and, so, is a linguistic sister to Romanian, French, Spanish and Italian, making them easier to learn once you’ve mastered Portuguese. Contact us today and start learning Portuguese online!

Amar pelos Dois - Salvador Sobral

Do you like jazz and are looking for new melodies in Portuguese to improve your language skills? Then, Amar pelos Dois is the track you are looking for.
