Portuguese Courses

Cactus offers a range of Portuguese courses and classes to suit your needs, budget and timetable. We recommend that all of students check their level by taking our user-friendly online level test before they decide which level to book.

Group Evening Language Courses

Cactus runs 10 week Portuguese evening language courses in the following locations across the UK: London, Manchester, Brighton, Bournemouth, Oxford, Leeds, and Liverpool. The courses follow a 10-week programme, for two hours per week, once a week. Your teacher will also set you homework which needs to be completed between the lessons. The course content is based around a core course book, with additional materials and resources introduced each week by the teacher. In our classes you will learn standard Portuguese, and the lessons will focus on the key areas of vocabulary, grammar, speaking, listening, reading, writing and pronunciation. Please visit our course outline page for full information on the course content.

For those who wish to complete the same content of the 10-week courses in a shorter period of time we also have 5-week intensive language courses.

Cactus Portuguese evening language courses are based on European Portuguese course materials and a European Portuguese course book. However, your teacher may be European Portuguese or Brazilian Portuguese and will teach their accent and vocabulary. We cannot confirm whether your teacher will be Brazilian Portuguese or European Portuguese until one week before the start of the course. The difference between the two is similar to the difference between American English and British English. There are differences in accent, vocabulary and minor syntax and grammatical differences.

If you have a strong preference for either Brazilian Portuguese or European Portuguese you must state this, in writing, at the time of booking. We will endeavour to place you in a class with a teacher of the preferred accent/origin. If you fail to advise us of your preference in writing at the time of your booking but later request a refund on the basis that the teacher does not match your preference then your refund request will be rejected.

Private Tuition

Cactus offers a range of options for private tuition including one-to-one classes in your home or place of work and Skype lessons at the time and place of your choice. For more information about our private tuition options please visit our private tuition division.

Immersion Courses

An excellent way to improve your language skills in a short period of time is to take a language immersion course in the country that the language is spoken. Cactus offers full-time language immersion courses in Portuguese speaking countries all over the world.
