Portuguese 1-to-1 General

This set of Portuguese tutorials are less specific and more targeted at those who want to get a range of different things from learning Portuguese. Even though all novice students will cover survival Portuguese: enough Portuguese to make a visit to the country or make good contacts with the locals, but what do you do from there? It depends on your needs. Those who have benefitted from these lessons have been those moving or investing overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people who love to travel all over the world, those interested in Portuguese culture, and those who just want to pass a specific examination in Portuguese.


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.


These are completely free and will take no more than 15 minutes

Portuguese Closed Group Lessons

2 or more people can benefit studying Portuguese together as these Portuguese lessons are also offered to groups (Two-to-One Portuguese Lesson or Small Group In-Company Portuguese Lesson). Every student must have the same degree of knowledge of the language, the same business or language needs and the ability to study at the same time and place as everybody else. The booking has to be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advocate group sessions of more than 6-8 people, though Taster Portuguese Lessons can be experienced by up to 12 people.
