Hi, I'm Catarina and I am a native Portuguese speaker who loves to teach and learn. I like to adapt the lessons to my students and have been teaching all levels, from beginner to advanced. I have a Pedagogical Skills Certificate which allows me to give training here in Portugal and have a passion for sharing some knowledge of my language and also learning from people with different nationalities and backgrounds.
My education is in Science and Culinary and I love both these fields. I love to read and learn about anything that I find interesting. Hope to see you soon!
Hi! I'm Aline & I'm from Brazil, now, I'm living in United States.
I started my career as a teacher 7 years ago, when I did a job as a translator for the Spanish embassy in Brazil and the consul invited me to teach Portuguese to him, then I started teaching other diplomats. As I am a perfectionist, I decided that in order to teach Portuguese I should study for it, so I studied Portuguese-English Letters and also studied a Professional Education Degree, which enables me to teach adults.
I also developed remote tutoring courses and I fell in love with teaching online.
I believe that the teaching-learning process happens on both sides, both you as a student and I as a teacher will learn and teach together! Book your trial and it will be a pleasure to meet you!
Languages provide a unique way to express oneself, relate to culture and enlighten different world perspectives. I have a strong zeal for language education, and speak Portuguese, French, and English fluently, understand Spanish and I am now learning German. I have lived in four different countries and this has been an exciting and challenging experience to immerse myself in new cultures and languages. I have also developed and learnt different techniques to increase the efficiency of my language learning skills and I am keen to share this with students.
At University, I specialised in Neuroeducation, where I learnt various methods and techniques to understand how the brain learns best and how to teach languages effectively. For years, I’ve been applying this knowledge in my training and tutoring sessions for students across the world. I seek to enhance my students’ learning experience with native and niche Portuguese expressions complemented with an insight into the Portuguese culture!
First and foremost, I listen carefully to students’ requests and assess their favourable learning method to achieve their goals! I evaluate each student's level and assess what their difficulties are and then provide the material, methods and techniques that are needed for students to succeed! However, what I find especially important is paying attention to students' interests and motivations, to make learning fun and ensure they get the most out of this beautiful language.
I am Brazilian and I currently live in Portugal.
I have lived in the UK and the Netherlands and I love meeting people from other cultures.
I have a Certificate in Teaching Portuguese for Foreigners and and I study Language Sciences at the University of Porto.
My classes are customised to each student's personal objectives. I cover both written and spoken Portuguese in addition to Brazilian Culture.
I can speak English or Spanish during our class to help you if necessary.

First of all welcome to LanguaTalk and my profile. Thank you for taking the time to hit my profile.
I'm a Portuguese teacher and tutor. I have been a tutor of Portuguese, English, and Psychology for many years as I started when I was in high school but I then decided to get my degree and become a Portuguese Teacher.
I was born and raised in Portugal, but I studied in England and live in the US, so I'm fluent in both languages. I believe I will be able to help you on your journey to learn a new language despite of the reason why you are learning Portuguese.
Can't wait to hear from you soon :)
Are you preparing for an exam? Do you want to improve your Portuguese in everyday life? Maybe you are preparing to visit a Portuguese speaking country? Gain confidence in speaking fluently and freely with me.
Classes will be taught according to your level and prepared exclusively to meet your expectations and goals. I provide all the materials needed for the class.
Acquiring a language is a very interesting process and a lot of people love to learn about culture or history. I like to introduce these subjects to my students for better assimilation of the language.
A learning environment should be calm but lessons should be fun and interesting, and that is how I like to teach my students.
My name is Suse. I'm from Portugal and I'm currently living in France. I taught Portuguese at a Chinese university for 3 years before returning to Europe. Since then, I teach European-Portuguese online.
If you are interested in learning a language and experiencing a culture join my class!
My name is Pamela, I'm from Brazil and I'm ready to help you learn Portuguese with ease. I teach students of all levels and I tailor my lessons to your goals and interests, offering bits of cultural content to help you immerse yourself in the language. I have two years of online teaching experience and formal training on Portuguese as a Second Language (PLE - Português como Língua Estrangeira).
Having learned four foreign languages myself, I can understand your difficulties and offer my own experience on how to overcome them. I have a degree in Communication and have worked for ten years in the print and online media. Therefore I can also help you improve your writing and correct or revise your written production.
As for my personal tastes, I'm a big fan of literature, music and cinema, an occasional biker and an avid traveller and foodie.
Let's schedule a trial lesson! Hope to see you soon.
Jose Rubens d
Oi! Hi! Ciao! My name is José. I lived in Brazil most of my life, in the city of Sao Paulo, and now, after a period in London, I'm living in Turin, Italy. I'm eager to help you learn Portuguese, whether it is for travelling, to speak the language of your loved one, for working or just for fun, no matter what is your level.
From day one, my lessons will be tailored to your goals and interests, to make them engaging and fun and to help you achieve fluency fastly.
I always include bits of culture in our interactions and draw parallels between your knowledge and the culture around the language you are learning, to make the experience richer and to make you feel closer to the native speakers. That is essential!
I also have professional experience in several areas, from hospitality to business consulting, which gave me a lot of flexibility with the language and I will use it to help you improve your vocabulary.
Apart from being a language enthusiast, I am really into music, cooking, and travel. I play the guitar (mainly blues, rock, and bossa nova), I love to cook Brazilian-style barbecue and unknown Italian dishes, and the last places I've been to were Southeast Asian countries on a 5 months trip.
Let's schedule a trial lesson!
Até mais! See you soon! A presto!
Hello Hola Olá!
My name is Micaela, I'm 27 years old and I'm from Azores, Portugal :) Here to make you have a good time while learning Portuguese.
The lessons can be very informal but at the same time structured.
All materials are provided for free, like books, PDFs, exercises etc. I like to immerse my students in the Portuguese culture as much as possible, using music, sending articles for homework etc.
If you have a kid or more don't worry anymore. I love to work with children as well and I have the experience and the material for a great kid-friendly lesson. I use TPR teaching Techniques and other methodologies.
Been teaching Portuguese as a second language to students online and face-to-face for a while now, (+ 2050 hours teaching), so I believe I have the experience and the results to make you achieve your goals.
I consider myself a polite and fun individual that you would probably enjoy talking X)
Book our first lesson NOW and let the fun begin!
I am looking forward to seeing you!
Hi! My name's Elisabete and I have been a teacher, coach, and tutor of English and European Portuguese for 18 years, 8 years online. My experience is broad in terms of age ranges as I have taught in many different settings, from Public and Private Schools, Languages Institutes, the government Employment Center, and several companies.
My approach is to find out my students' goals and tailor methods that are adequate to meet the learners' needs and interests. I use and provide different resources, such as manuals, worksheets, role-plays, games, listening exercises, and much more. I am an open-minded and upbeat teacher that offers suggestions, for instance, if a student wants reading or videos materials to complement their Portuguese homework, I have several ideas for all different levels.
I have also been doing exam preparation for CIPLE, DEPLE, DIPLE, students that want to relocate, move to Portugal, for retirement, to study, or to work and invest!
In what concerns my hobbies, I would say that I love teaching but also traveling, going trekking, kayaking, and relaxing with a book. I also speak a bit of Spanish and French.
Come on and book a lesson! It will be awesome! Hope to meet you soon!

1-on-1 lessons are perhaps the best way to improve speaking skills, and because of this many students use LanguaTalk to learn to speak Portuguese fluently. That said, some people have other, more specific goals. Let your tutor know what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your personal needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
Most of the Portuguese tutors on our site are able to teach students of all levels. When you click on a tutor's profile you'll see if certain levels are not supported. For example, certain tutors cannot teach complete beginners.
Likewise, you can also see on the tutor's profile whether they're suitable for all ages. Lessons are sometimes taken via LanguaTalk to support school/college studies. Usually, the tutor will be able to customise the lessons to follow the material and topics covered in the student's exams. Note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Most tutors offer a trial for free. If they do not, they’ll offer a trial session at a discount compared to their usual hourly rate.
Trial sessions are 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Portuguese as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too! Book a trial today to see if taking Portuguese lessons on Zoom/Skype works well for you.
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experience, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. To see tutors who are likely to fit your weekly schedule, use the availability filter at the top. Then when you see a tutor you like, check their profile calendar to make sure their time slots work for you. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have lots of students.
We want students to have an exceptional learning experience on LanguaTalk, so we only accept the very best tutor applications. Though we consider qualifications and experience, we place equal value on communication skills, personality and reviews from previous students. Almost all of the tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and they can speak English too.
Each tutor is unique - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right tutor for you.
Our booking system is designed to be easy to use. You can see tutors' available slots in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to buy them one at a time, or purchase in bulk with a volume discount. You can pay securely by card on our website.
You can manually add bookings to your personal calendar, or if you use Google calendar, you can add bookings automatically with our syncing feature. You'll also be able to receive email reminders to help ensure you don't forget to turn up.
You can reschedule or cancel lessons in a couple of clicks. Please note that this can be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. We have this policy to be fair to tutors, who cannot replace lessons at the last minute and need some form of income protection.
Portuguese lessons via Zoom/Skype tend to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel. Online Portuguese tutors may cost between $7 to $30 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors on certain websites may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, Portuguese tutors typically charge between $10 and $25 per hour.
Of course, receiving Portuguese tutoring via Zoom or Skype is not the cheapest way to learn; you could learn via a free app instead. But if you're serious about learning, nothing beats 1-on-1 Portuguese lessons with a great teacher.
According to the Foreign Service Institute, if you already speak English, Portuguese is one of the easiest languages to learn. The exact amount of time it will take you to become fluent will depend on many factors, such as your current level, your knowledge of similar languages, your capacity to learn, how you study, and how intensively you study. Some students who take multiple Portuguese lessons on Zoom/Skype each week will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months. Others will take longer. Combining 1-on-1 lessons with an online Portuguese tutor with regular self-study is an effective way to learn Portuguese fast.
Most tutors offer both Skype and Zoom as options for the lessons. If they only offer one of these, this will be stated on their profile. Both tools are free, easy to use and perfect for language learning. They allow you to do everything you would do in a physical classroom: speak, listen, read, write, and share learning materials. Your tutor will typically write corrections directly in the chat area so that you can later revise everything you’ve learnt.
Most Portuguese tutors using Skype/Zoom also use other technologies and resources to enhance the learning experience, for example Google Docs (for real-time collaboration), videos, and PowerPoint slides. If you're unable to take the Portuguese lessons via Zoom or Skype, please contact our support team and we’ll get in touch with the tutor you're interested in to see if they're able to use an alternative video technology, such as Google Meet.
Students sometimes feel unsure about learning online because they think it won't be as effective as learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a strong relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen Portuguese tutor on Zoom/Skype, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. They’ll usually also share learning resources with you (using Google Docs, YouTube etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on many factors, such as your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take 1-on-1 Portuguese lessons on Zoom/Skype, you can use a free app like Duolingo to build your vocab. And to improve your listening skills, you can try watching TV and listening to podcasts in Portuguese. But to learn how to actually speak a language, you need to talk to a native speaker on a regular basis and receive accurate feedback so that you improve. If you want to make fast progress, it's best to take private lessons that are tailored to your personal needs by an experienced teacher.
