In-person language lessons with a teacher can be a great experience, but if you're unable to find an affordable private Portuguese teacher in Barcelona, online learning may be a good option for you. To take lessons with a Portuguese teacher in your area, you may have to pay more to cover their travel costs or travel to their home, and the average cost of private Portuguese classes for adults in Barcelona is over $20 per hour. With online learning, you can save on travel expenses and have access to top teachers from around the world.
Many students who try online language lessons with a teacher are pleasantly surprised by the experience. At LanguaTalk, lessons are 1-on-1 to ensure you get your teacher's full attention and can make rapid progress. Lessons are conducted via video call, allowing you to communicate with your teacher and share learning materials, as if you were in the same room. Give it a try with a free trial session and see for yourself!
You can watch Portuguese teacher intro videos, check their availability, and read reviews from their students on their profiles. You'll also see which learning needs, ages, and levels the teacher is comfortable with.
Are you new to LanguaTalk? When you sign up, you'll get a token for a complimentary 30-minute trial lesson. Use this to meet your chosen teacher and decide whether you want to keep taking classes with them or look for a Portuguese teacher in Barcelona instead. (Please note: not all teachers offer a free trial lesson - some charge 30% of their regular lesson price.)
Hello, I’m a teacher of Portuguese, English and French. My native language is Brazilian Portuguese and I am from the state of Goiás. I am in my last year of my Bachelor's degree in Languages (French and Francophone studies Major) and I’ve been living in the beautiful city of Bordeaux for a while. I also have a music background. Plus, I love languages and study Spanish, German and Mandarin as a hobby.
I have had a significant amount of teaching experience both during my time as a working professional outside of the academy and as a student with different age groups and levels in Portuguese, English and French. I started by being an English tutor at high school to high school and college students and later on as an English language teacher for beginner to advanced levels and facilitator of conversation classes at a professional school. In the beginning of 2020 I acted as an English teacher and conversation partner for children ages 4-12 (online) and started at another online school as a French as a foreign language (FLE) classes in small groups and at the individual level (levels A2-B2).
Language learning has to be fun, in my opinion. That’s why we will always talk about things that interest and inspire you. If we’re practicing grammar or just talking about something else, I want to make it interesting for us and link the grammatical and formal terms to real-life subjects. Therefore, your emotional filter will be open and as a result your journey will be fun and enriching.See Reviews From Students
I’m a professional language teacher, who is a language enthusiast and loves to learn more about countries and cultures.
I believe language learning is a process that takes time and effort. It results in a better understanding of language, culture, and worldview, bringing us closer to one another and enriching our daily and professional lives.
You learn better with lessons designed around your needs, difficulties and expectations. For this reason, I only teach individual lessons to adults, where we can discuss topics that interest you.
You’ll receive exclusive feedback to make the most of your classes. We’ll use an interactive document, where we can write in real-time and complete exercises during the class. After the lesson, you’ll be able to download it with the relevant corrections, texts, and notes on grammar and pronunciation. I’ll also teach you strategies or provide material to help you to continue learning in your own time.
You’ll have dynamic lessons, which will help you to become an independent and competent speaker. We’ll work to develop the four skills of language learning and communication: reading, writing, speaking and listening. I’ll also teach you expressions and cultural awareness, which will be useful when you travel or interact with natives. Every lesson, you’ll receive a report with discussion notes, mistakes & corrections and what you need to do to progress and never stop learning. Your lessons will focus on your needs and difficulties, plus I will teach you how to develop good language learning habits, which will help you to become an independent learner.
If you want to develop your language skills and learn studying techniques to help you progress, book a lesson now and start to build your language skills in a way that matters to you.See Reviews From Students

Hello Everyone! Welcome to fun and enjoyable Portuguese lessons online!
My name is Paula and I am a qualified Portuguese teacher. I studied to be a Waldorf primary teacher and also completed the TEFL, which additionally allows me to teach English.I also have a bachelor's degree is in Cinema and Communication.
I am half Brazilian/half Portuguese and I also teach both Brazilian and European Portuguese, depending on your preference. I am fascinated by all the varieties of my language and the small distinctions between them. It's so beautiful!

In my classes, I use a communicative approach and we start talking from day 1. My goal is to make students feel comfortable with the language and not be afraid to make mistakes. I work on the development of speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills, as well as proper pronunciation and vocabulary enhancement.
In my classes, you will learn about Brazilian or Portuguese culture, through music, texts, videos, quizzes, and pictures. Classes for children are full of games and arts!

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!See Reviews From Students
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!

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!See Reviews From Students

Hello, I'm Edite and I am Portuguese.
I’m an expert in diction and pronunciation.
My goal is to help build trust in people who want to learn Portuguese. My experience as a teacher has already allowed me to connect with students from all continents. This is a unique capital of knowledge and culture. Understanding people and their needs are fundamental to the teaching process.
I have a degree in social communication and a post-graduation in the same area. I’m also a graduated artist with a special taste for collage and digital art.
I have been working in communication, consulting and training for over 30 years. I worked with the Portuguese government and other higher organs of sovereignty for many years. My experience gives me excellent business knowledge of trades.
I also have experience as a trainer in Portuguese. I was a trainer in communication, media training and ethics and compliance. I’m versatile, proactive, creative, calm, and easy to get along with.
I love to know people, other contexts and countries and I’m especially suited to teach adults at levels A2 and B1 and B2.
My performance as a teacher
I am an expert in diction, communication, how to speak well in public and also in media training. I adapt to the student’s interests, creating, in collaboration with them, an environment favourable to study and motivation for learning. I also design a study plan appropriate to the intended objectives.
My classes and teaching style
I like to contextualize the examples using materials that I develop according to the student’s needs: Yes! I do many times customized exercises to match the needs of the student.
I use images, audio, videos, PPT presentations, books, etc. I can help you develop orality; grammar; writing - pronunciation, diction, comprehension of texts and audio - and any other difficulty according to the need identified
My teaching material
Interactive platform; pictures; videos and audio; exercises; PDF files; documents; articles; Graphs and tables; PPTs; my Youtube channel.See Reviews From Students
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, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever Portuguese tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the classes to your individual needs.
The beauty of taking classes online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a teacher, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some teachers have limited availability as they already have a lot of students.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute classes. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute classes. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute classes are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute classes if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.

You'll be encouraged to speak in Portuguese as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the teacher is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another teacher for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.

Our research suggests that the average cost for private Portuguese classes for adults in Barcelona is somewhere between $25-$35 per hour. As online teachers do not need to travel to you and they often live in countries with a lower cost of living, the hourly cost tends to be significantly lower.
Whether you live in the city centre or the suburbs of Barcelona, there are many options for learning Portuguese. You could use an app or a software program if you're looking to pick up basic vocabulary and learn some grammar rules. Alternatively, you could attend group classes for adults with Portuguese teachers in Barcelona if you're keen for a social experience. Or, you could take 1-on-1 classes for adults with a private teacher. This isn't the cheapest way to learn a language but it's possibly the most effective, assuming you have a good teacher. Learning online rather than face-to-face may make private teachers a more affordable option. Check the teacher profiles above to see how much it's likely to cost. Prices vary a lot depending on the teacher, but will usually be cheaper than learning with a Portuguese teacher in Barcelona, face-to-face.
Tutors on LanguaTalk sometimes provide classes for adults locally, but most only provide online classes for adults as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, most tutors are not teaching Portuguese in Barcelona because they're living elsewhere in the world. If you decide to book with a tutor, you should assume that they can only teach you online.
If you're really not keen on learning with a teacher via video call, LanguaTalk isn't going to be the right choice for you. You can instead search for a teacher on a local service listing website, or put up an advert in your local area. We do encourage you to give it a try learning online though - you've got nothing to lose as you can book a free trial session. Most people find the experience is as good as learning face-to-face, but with the benefit of having access to better teachers at a lower cost.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning Portuguese online because they think it’ll be completely different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a solid relationship with their teacher.
Once you start a video call with your chosen teacher, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The teacher will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
