Brazilian Portuguese language
Discover and release your inner Lusophone!
Our highly qualified and experienced, native-level teachers will guide you through your first steps into your chosen language and beyond. Speaking almost exclusively in Brazilian Portuguese, your teacher will help you to quickly learn to start communicating and understanding through varied and challenging activities, designed to encourage the student to both take the lead in their own learning, with support from class mates and the teacher, and build confidence when actively using the target language. You will find lessons to be dynamic, engaging and highly interactive. This communicative approach actively dispenses with the more formal lecture-based learning environment typical of school and university, promoting a fun and friendly atmosphere in which students can both learn, be challenged and enjoy their study.
This final point is particularly important after a long day at work and is the key reason why so many of our students return for more!
Why learn Portuguese? A true sense of culture and national characteristic can only really ever be discovered through time spent immersed in an unfamiliar society, and to do this, knowledge of the language is essential.
Portuguese opens up no less than 10 countries and many more community groups to discovery, from the goliath that is Brazil, with its fascinating multitude of people, cities and sites, to São Tomé and Príncipe, once the world’s largest producer of cocoa despite it being not much larger than half the size of Greater London, and Lisbon (Portugal) the oldest city in Western Europe with its 11th century castle that sits proudly overlooking the river Tagus.
Our teachers are encouraged to expose their learners as much as possible to the many interesting ways of life, peculiarities and subtleties of other parts of the world, from interesting customs and traditions to typical food, song and dance.
They often even turn the class into a cultural social experience!
