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!
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 :)
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.

Hello Hola Olá!
My name is Micaela, I'm 27 years old and I'm 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! 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!
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!
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!
My name is Cheila and I'm Portuguese.
I am a certified teacher and also a Portuguese native. Therefore I am qualified to help you exposing you to the best content and exercises that will promote your growth.
As a native, I can also prepare you for the Portuguese spoken by the natives, which often differs from the written one.
The lessons will vary according to your motivations and goals.
There are no magic recipes, you just need motivation, commitment, and to practice often!
Ready? Let's do it!
Schedule a trial lesson with me and let's work together to successfully and uncomplicatedly achieve your goals.
Do you want to learn Portuguese within a couple of months? Get to pronounce almost like a native?
I teach Portuguese for beginners and intermediates within a couple of months in an interactive way and focused on professional and personal needs.
Having lived in 4 different countries, I developed a strong passion for several cultures and languages. Over the last years, I learned several languages from scratch and I love sharing my knowledge and how I did it with other people with the same ambitions.
Probably I speak one of your languages. Book a trial session and start improving your Portuguese!

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 students have other, more specific goals. Tell your tutor what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
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 last 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!
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
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. Online Portuguese lessons are sometimes taken 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. Please note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
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 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.
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 tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and we require that they can speak English too.
Each tutor is different - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right Portuguese tutor for you.
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.
Our booking system is designed to be incredibly easy to use. You can see tutors' available hours in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to purchase them one at a time, or buy 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. Note that this can only be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. This rule is required to protect tutors, who lose income when lessons are cancelled at the last minute.
Sometimes students feel uncertain about learning Portuguese online because they think it’ll be totally 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 strong relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen Portuguese tutor online, 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.
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 will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months through intensive study. 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.
If you live in the US or Europe, face-to-face Portuguese lessons may cost anywhere between $15 and $40 (USD) per hour. Online tutoring tends to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel to you. An online Portuguese tutor could cost anywhere from $7 to $30 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, Portuguese tutors typically charge between $10 and $25 per hour.
Of course, learning 1-on-1 with an experienced Portuguese tutor 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.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take lessons, you can use a free app such as Duolingo to build your vocabulary. And to improve your listening skills, you can watch TV and listen 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 1-on-1 lessons that are tailored to your needs by an experienced online Portuguese teacher.
