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

These Portuguese lessons are driven towards people who have a requirement to learn Portuguese to bolster their work output. For novices, you will find it useful to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and once you have become more proficient then reading and writing will come to the fore. Typical students include those concerned with import/export, those seeking work in multinational companies, international negotiations, and anyone working with international colleagues or administration. Even on our most rudimentary beginners lesson, students can expect to finish the lesson with decent telephone and e-mail Portuguese, as well as a good enough grip on the language for a short trip to the country.

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.
