Portuguese Courses!

Learning Portuguese will allow you to gain a greater understanding of the history and culture of Portugal, as well as the seven other countries in which it is an official language! A romance language developing from Latin, Portugal’s location on the edge of the Roman Empire meant that the Latin spoken there tended not to adopt the lexical changes that influenced French and Italian. Portuguese was then influenced heavily by Arabic after the Moorish invasion of the Iberian Peninsula and this influence can still be seen in words such as aldeia (village). Portugal then became a great power during the Age of Discovery, picking up a variety of loanwords from the countries conquered and encountered along the way.

This diversity of influences makes Portuguese a fascinating language to learn and it is always very popular amongst our students! You can choose to learn Portuguese in Portugal or Brazil, two countries that share one language but have very different cultures!

We understand that our students have a variety of reasons for wishing to learn Portuguese and this is why we offer such a wide range of Portuguese courses! Our ‘Intensive’ courses (20 lessons per week) or ‘Super-Intensive’ courses (25+ lessons per week) will allow you to improve your overall level of Portuguese, whilst private lessons will allow you to focus on any aspects of the language which you feel require particular attention.
