Latin Speakers

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.
