Portuguese 1-to-1 General

Portuguese lessons of this type are broader and are aimed towards students with a variety of requirements. While all beginner level students will cover survival Portuguese - needed for short visits to countries where English isn't widely spoken, or if you wish to 'go local'; those studying Portuguese usually go in different directions at this point, depending on what they need. Those who have benefitted from these Portuguese classes have been those investing in or buying property overseas, those married to overseas nationals, people setting off on a round-the-world trip, enthusiasts in Portuguese culture, and those enthusiastic to pass a specific exam 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.
