Course Overview

 

Online Portuguese Levels 11&12 is a Pre-Intermediate Portuguese course for students who have been studying the Portuguese language for a while. This is an intensive Portuguese course allowing you to take two Portuguese levels in 10 weeks and progress more quickly. Online Portuguese Levels 11&12 requires that you have previously studied Portuguese Level 10 or a course of at least 120 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level then check our level 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.
