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.

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.
