Portuguese - Evening - Level 1

Our beginners’ Portuguese class is suitable for those who have no knowledge of the Portuguese language.

Evening language classes at IH London are dynamic and interactive. Your teacher speaks in the target language and uses teaching aids to help you understand. Emphasis is on spoken communication and interaction; this is achieved through pair and group work, simulations and role-plays, and is supported by systematic work on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
