Portuguese Lessons in Adelaide

Thanks to our personalized teaching methodology, language learning has never been easier. You can take face-to-face Portuguese lessons with us from the comfort of your home, in your workplace, or even at your teacher’s office! All you have to do is let us find you the best teacher in Adelaide and let us guide you to fluency.

The type of courses we offer:

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) General Portuguese

These Portuguese lessons fit a broader spectrum and can be useful for those who need different things from the language. Most beginner students will have a handle of survival Portuguese by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough Portuguese to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions. Typical students have been those eager to travel all over the world, those buying overseas property, those with foreign spouses, aficionados of Portuguese culture and those who just wish to pass a particular Portuguese exam.

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) Business Portuguese

These Portuguese Lessons are intended for people who really need to learn Portuguese to help make that difference in their work. For beginners, it will be useful to learn greetings and basic business etiquette; at higher levels, reading and then writing become more important. Typical students include those involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where an additional language is required, and those working with international colleagues, academia and government. Even in our most basic lesson for Beginners, students should expect to end the lesson with basic telephone Portuguese and Portuguese e-mail skills for communication as well as survival Portuguese required for short visits to a country.

Sozinho- Caetano Veloso

Caetano Veloso is a prolific Brazilian artist that produced jewels like Sozinho. This is a great song for beginner and intermediate-level students of Portuguese looking to increase their vocabulary and improve their listening comprehension while listening to beautiful, catchy songs. Sozinho (in English, Alone) talks about being alone but not lonely and urges listeners to take advantage of the time you have available to get to know yourself better, so it has a great message. Plus, you’ll pick up some words related to moments of the day like noite (the night), de manha (in the morning) or meio dia (noon). Listen to the song here!

portuguese Songs

Mas que Nada- Jorge Ben Jor

Jorge Ben Jor’s top hit is Mas que nada, a great song that is useful to practise your Portuguese skills and learn new vocabulary in context. Beginners will certainly benefit from this song because it’s sung using the present simple tense and doesn’t use complicated structures. Also, you can pick up some very common expressions, like tudo legal (everything is OK) or bom dia (good day). This song will also help you improve your pronunciation, as the singer has a clear accent and sings relatively slowly, allowing you to mimic the sounds easily as you sing along! Sing along to this romantic song!

Aquarela- Toquinho

Toquinho is a bossa nova and pop composer from Sao Paulo, Brazil, who produced great music, like Aquarela, a song to put your Portuguese into practice. The song speaks about the poetic persona’s childhood, who remembers beautiful moments he spent with this family. So, it’s a great track to learn the colours, like yellow (amarelo), red (vermelho), blue (azul) and green (verde). The pace is slow and it has a catchy rhythm, so you will not only learn the language, but also you’ll brighten your day! Listen to the song here!

RTP Notícias

Take advantage of online resources and keep up with the news in Portugal while you improve your reading and listening skills and learn new vocabulary.

The presenters speak in a clear, articulated manner, so intermediate and advanced learners who are already used to the Portuguese pronunciation and cadence will not have any problem understanding what they are saying. And if you decide to watch previously broadcasted news, you can turn on captions, which is great for beginner students who need some support. Click here to learn more.

Folha de Sao Paulo

If you are looking to hear the news in Brazilian Portuguese and put your listening skills into practice, Folha de Sao Paulo is a great website.

The articles are long (typically, more than 600 words) and feature an in-depth analysis of what is going on in this giant South American country.
