Portuguese Lessons

Do you want to learn a language with a long history and plenty of modern opportunities? Portuguese is an excellent option! From the Roman invasion of the Iberian Peninsula to the Arabic influence during the early medieval period, the Portuguese language has been impacted by those whose lives have been spent in the western Iberian Peninsula.

While Portuguese began in Iberia, only 5% of fluent speakers live there today. As the official language of nine countries, Portuguese can be heard around the world! It is the fifth most spoken language, making it a practical and beautiful language to learn.

Our certified Portuguese teachers can guide you on the path to fluency as they work with you as an individual to advance your reading and conversational skills.

Is Portuguese an easy language to learn?

Yes, Portuguese is a Romance language, which makes it reasonably easy for English speakers to learn. While there are some sounds that may be somewhat challenging, like nasals, overall, shared Latin roots make vocabulary easier to pick up. Like Latin, there are many verb tenses and endings to learn. Don’t let this scare you, though! Once you learn them, it can make understanding a sentence easier.

With time and practice, you can definitely learn Portuguese. Of course, the best way to learn a foreign language is through use, and our one-on-one Portuguese teachers give you the individual coaching and opportunities to speak that you need to develop your language skills. Sign up today to begin your Portuguese journey!

Is Spanish or Portuguese harder?

Portuguese is generally considered slightly more difficult, though the languages are so similar that it is a matter of gradients. There are more sounds, grammatical rules, and vocabulary for Portuguese learners to master, but speakers also report that the language is more fun to speak and pleasant to listen to! It might be easier to find Spanish language resources when learning the language, but Portuguese is still relatively easy to access.

Many of these differences are easily overcome with the individual guidance and feedback you will get from our online Portuguese lessons. Our certified tutors work with you to suit your learning style. As our lessons focus on you, your goals, and your interests, you will find that you can pick up Portuguese at your pace.
