Portuguese Evening Classes

Did you know that Portuguese is the most widely spoken language in the southern hemisphere? As well as being spoken in Portugal and Brazil, it is also used in Macau, Cape Verde, Angola, Mozambique, and Goa (India).

Our Portuguese evening classes will help you to improve your everyday language skills. By the end of your class, you could book a hotel in Lisbon, order food at a restaurant in Rio de Janeiro, or even book a dolphin watching tour in the Azores islands - all in Portuguese!

You'll also learn about the different cultural traditions, food, music, and artistic creations that connect all Portuguese-speaking countries. 

Level 1

This 20 week course will introduce some of the basic structures of the language through topics related to social and everyday life in the country/countries where it is spoken. The focus is on listening, speaking and reading simple materials that introduce basic grammatical structures.
