Ready to become fluent in European Portuguese?

For the last decade, we’ve been working on putting together the best possible European Portuguese course. After much research, feedback from our students, and a number of iterations, we think we’ve got it! 😉

As a base, we used scientifically proven techniques to help with master pronunciation, phrase construction, oral understanding, grammar, and all the necessary bits to get you to fluency. At the same time, having learned foreign languages ourselves, we know the process needs to be engaging, varied, and enjoyable. The whole thing is presented as an adventure. It’s a course like no other, trust us!

    I’m a month into learning Brazilian Portuguese with a tutor and Duolingo. I know nothing about European dialects.! Would you say that the two of you have similar accents, or are you from different areas? Sometimes your accents seem to be similar to me, sometimes not 😅

    1. 😊 we have the same accent really. The differences you may hear might be in the way we enunciate our words.
