Portuguese Courses in the UK

Portuguese Language Courses

Our Portuguese language courses are delivered using a proven method, which will give you the confidence to speak and write in Portuguese, and offer you a continued sense of progression and achievement.

Learning a new language, or improving on your current language skills, takes time and dedication. But don’t worry, our enthusiastic and highly qualified teachers will keep you motivated, engaged and on task.

Why Learn Portuguese?

A language of rapidly growing popularity, Portuguese is the official language of 8 independent countries, including Portugal and Latin America’s super power, Brazil. Learning Portuguese will open the door to 230 million speakers worldwide, from a variety of wonderful cultures, landscapes and accents.

As a Romance language you will find Portuguese easier if you have prior knowledge of French, Spanish or Italian – or even Romanian. That said, it is a beautiful language to learn from scratch and your small group evening classes will give you the skills you need to speak Portuguese with confidence. Our Portuguese courses are taught by native Portuguese and Brazilian teachers.

How Our Portuguese Language Courses Work

Cactus group Portuguese evening language courses will introduce you to Portuguese through small group classes with native-speaking, experienced and qualified teachers, using the communicative approach and focusing on speaking and listening.

You will engage in pair-work and group-work during the course, maximising your opportunities to use Portuguese during class time.

Cactus also offers you the opportunity to keep up the momentum by progressing through the levels from Beginners (A1) through to Advanced (C1) and mastering this increasingly important global language which is highly sought after by employers in a wide range of industries.

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.
