Portuguese 1-to-1 General

These Portuguese lessons are more general in nature and are targeted at students with a whole range of different needs. While all beginners level students can expect to cover Survival Portuguese - required for short visits to a country where English may not be spoken and/or the intention is to make good contacts with the local population, students then generally progress in different directions depending on their needs. Typical students include those buying property overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people about to set off on that long-awaited world trip, Portuguese culture enthusiasts and those who are keen to pass a particular Portuguese examination.

Portuguese 1-to-1 Business

Portuguese lessons of this type are aimed towards those that need to learn Portuguese to aid them with their employment. For those just starting out, it is integral to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and reading and writing can be adopted once the simple precepts are out of the way. Success has come from students who are involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, those seeking jobs in multinational companies, and those working with foreign colleagues, academia and bureaucracy. Just our most basic beginners lesson will have the student finishing the lesson with basic telephone/e-mail skills in Portuguese, as well as survival Portuguese should a short stay in the country be needed.

Portuguese Closed Group Lessons

Lessons in Portuguese are also accessible for 2 or more studying in tandem (Two-to-One Portuguese Lesson or Small Group In-Company Portuguese Lesson). All those involved must have around the same experience of the language, similar needs of areas of proficiency, and must be able to work at the same time and place. Bookings must be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advise classes of more than 6-8 people, although In-Company Taster Portuguese sessions can be run with as many as 12 people.
