What you'll learn in this basic portuguese class:

Full 20 Hour Course: This course concentrates primarily on aspects of the Portuguese language that are most difficult for Spanish speakers, such as pronunciation, vocabulary, idioms and grammatical structures particular to Portuguese.

  • Understand simple spoken Portuguese 
  • Relate Portuguese sounds to their written forms; 
  • Pronounce simple Portuguese text accurately; 
  • Demonstrate a knowledge of basic Portuguese grammar; 
  • Write simple sentences about themselves, using present and future, and employing a basic vocabulary.
Note: Classes may be offered in a 3, 5, 7 or 10 week class. Purchase includes a $30 Basico 1L Material Fee.
