Latin Speakers

study portuguese in rio de janeiro

Course Description

The Latin Speakers Course is designed specifically for people from Latin countries who are fluent in Spanish and can already understand a bit of Portuguese. We recognise the challenges of placing Spanish and/or Italian speakers in the same beginners level of Portuguese so we have a course specifically for them. The Latin Speakers Course starts students in a separate beginners course for 2 weeks and then integrates them into a level appropriate for them (normal beginners would do 2 weeks of A1 and 2 weeks of A1+, whereas Latin Speakers will do 2 weeks of Latin Speakers Course and 2 weeks of either A2 or B1). The Latin Speakers Course focuses on the differences in grammar and conversation between Spanish/Italian and Portuguese.
