How to Learn Portuguese Online?

If you are looking to start learning Portuguese to do business in Portugal, Brazil and Africa, or learning for travel purposes or personal interest, our online Portuguese courses will help you develop your Portuguese language skills. Portuguese is spoken by more than 250 million people worldwide and our online Portuguese courses simulate a face-to-face experience. You will work in pairs and small groups and partake in speaking and communication activities, reading and listening exercises, quizzes and games.

Cactus online Portuguese courses are divided in 6 levels in accordance with the Common European Framework – CEFR. If you are unsure of your level, take our free online Portuguese level test. You can also find the full online Portuguese course outlines here. Are you a beginner? Find out more about our Beginners Language Courses.


Portuguese from Portugal or Brazil?

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.


How Virtual Classrooms Work

The virtual classrooms are hosted using an online platform which replicates the face-to-face environment. This allows teachers and students to interact and enjoy a classroom environment in an online setting. You can find out more about virtual classrooms here.
