What you'll learn in this basic portuguese class:

This intro course to Brazilian Portuguese is for absolute beginners or for people who studied the language years ago but need to brush up on the basics.

Together, we'll cover:
  • pronunciation and intonation
  • the present and simple past
  • basic grammar including articles, gender, plurals and prepositions
Each lesson will also include in-class conversation practice and real-life situations such as talking about yourself (job, home, family, likes and dislikes), shopping, and ordering in a restaurant.

The beginner, advanced beginner and intermediate courses follow the same textbook (not included in the course price but available to students for the discounted price of around $18).

Question from Anonymous
Traveling to Portugal this summer and don’t know a word of Portuguese. Would this class be helpful?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Yes, the class would be helpful for a traveler to Portugal -- it focuses on the conversation -- but the student should be aware the teacher is from Brazil and not Portugal. The differences are roughly comparable to English English vs American English, not too great.
