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!

  1. Thank you very much, muito abrigada
    Your videos are really important to me and interesting. This is the only way I can learn European portuguese with free access and with sound and pronounciation.

  2. I like it when you don’t have a sound in the background for atmosphere. Like a fake restaurant or music. Such things have value for normal videos, but I’m trying to hear you clearly.The video with the colours for instance has production video, but I am no Kindergarten child…please loose the sound and music in the background. So this kind of video is just GREAT! Keep it up!

  3. I need every day life basics. I’ve been living in Portugal for 10 months but it is so hard to learn. I am barely A2 level. :/

    1. Lavender olá 👋🏼 I would say they both correct and as common as each other but I personally prefer to say “lavanda”, but that’s me. Either way you say it, it’s fine 🙂

    2. Actually Lavanda (Lavandula angustifolia) and Alfazema (Lavandula latifólia) are not quite the same plant.

  4. Eu sou da região de Lisboa e sempre disse “é um quarto para …” e nunca ouvi “são um quarto para…”. De igual modo ” é uma e meia ” e não ” são uma e meia”.
