Course Overview


Online Portuguese Levels 1&2 is a Beginners Portuguese course for students who have never studied the Portuguese language before. This is an intensive Portuguese course allowing you to take two Portuguese levels in 10 weeks and progress more quickly. 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.
