Course Overview


Online Portuguese Level 4 is an Elementary Portuguese course for students who have already studied some Portuguese. Online Portuguese Level 4 requires that you have previously studied Portuguese Level 3 or a course of at least 36 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.
