Course Overview


Online Portuguese Level 17 is an Advanced course for students for students who have been studying the Portuguese language for quite some time and who are wanting to progress to a more advanced level. Online Portuguese Level 17 requires that you have previously studied Portuguese Level 16 or a course of at least 192 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level then check our levels chart.


Our Online Portuguese language classes take place via Zoom with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. The interactive lessons emulate our face-to-face classes, and via teacher screen-sharing, students are able to experience a live classroom environment. From vocabulary activities and covering grammar points on the white board, to listening exercises, file sharing and ‘break-out rooms’ to practise speaking with classmates, students can learn without leaving the comfort of their homes. Take a look at an example of one of our online classes in this video.
