Portuguese is a beautiful language that is spoken on four continents. Whether you want to travel to Portuguese-speaking countries, communicate with native speakers, or simply learn more about this language and culture, this course is for you! Over 12 weeks you will practise all language skills and start communicating in Portuguese. As the teacher is Brazilian, we will use the book ‘Samba!’ and focus on Brazilian Portuguese and Brazilian culture. Venha sambar com a gente!
Who is this course for?

This course is for beginners. During the course, we work towards CEFR level A1 of Brazilian Portuguese. The course is taught in Portuguese as much as possible, with explanations provided in English when necessary. It is therefore important that you have a good command of English in order to participate in the course.

What will you learn in this course?

The course consists of 12 two-hour lessons, during which the following topics will be covered:

  • The alphabet and pronunciation
  • Numbers
  • Basic sentence structure
  • Pronouns, articles, and prepositions
  • Regular verbs and some irregular verbs
  • Basic vocabulary such as days of the week, times, seasons, and professions
How many hours of independent study are required?

You should expect to spend a total of 30 hours on independent study in order to stay on track with the course. Each week, you will be expected to revise the study material, practise vocabulary, watch videos in Portuguese, complete short exercises, and update your portfolio.

What will you be able to do after the course?

After completing this course, you will be able to have simple conversations in which you will be able to:

  • Greet someone or introduce yourself.
  • Give and ask for personal details.
  • Talk about everyday activities and your interests.
  • Describe a person, place, object, and surroundings.
  • Order or book something while on holiday.

After successfully completing this course, you will be ready for the follow-up course Portuguese A1>A2.
