Learn Brazilian Portuguese in short, fun sessions

  • Are you tired of repeating meaningless, random phrases with language apps?
  • Would you like some personalised feedback on your pronunciation?

  • Learn the most common phrases and structures used by Brazilians in everyday situations. Taught in a progressive way by a real teacher, not generated by a language machine.
  • Learn how Brazilians speak in real life, how they change and adapt conventional grammar into a much more colloquial style.
  • Learn the most common sounds in Portuguese and the pronunciation tricks that will make you instantly sound more fluent and confident.
  • Plus I'll answer your questions throughout the course as well as give you personalised feedback on your pronunciation with the Pronunciation Assignments.

"This method is very impressive and very effective. There is just the right amount of grammar and phonetics that one needs to learn and progress in Brazilian Portuguese. The lessons are not too long, not too short - just the right length. Most importantly, they cover the basic situations one needs to master to become functional in Brazil."
