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!
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.
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.
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!

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.

Olá, hello, hola ;) I'm Diogo from Portugal, and it will be my pleasure to guide you through the Portuguese language and culture, adapting the sessions to you. I have a passion for languages and I really enjoy tutoring, learning and always having fun in the process, adapting games, developing listening skills, having friendly conversations, writing, using videos and songs, text comprehension, pronunciation, entertaining grammar exercises,..
I've studied Management and Informatics, and Digital Marketing. I have been tutoring for over eight years now, it is true I enjoy talking about every subject.
I am Portuguese, 37 years old, currently I'm living in Portugal, always close to the ocean. In addition to native Portuguese, I'm fluent in English and Spanish (I lived in Madrid for 8 years) and at the moment I'm also enjoying learning Arabic and Hindi, I don't dance Bollywood yet ;).
I am very curious, and so I will be delighted to chat with you in Portuguese as soon as possible, share the Portuguese culture and learn about yours.
I love different cultures, sharing views and perspectives, playing guitar, languages, the ocean, science, motorcycles, literature, nature, sports, sociology, technology, philosophy, economics, psychology... everything interesting. ;D
Welcome to this fun learning journey!
Who I am...
I am Valéria: a language enthusiast!
I love being around people from other cultures and traveling as much as I can. I am Brazilian, but I am currently living in Portugal. The USA is a country that I love so much, and due to that, I decided to be an Au Pair and spend a year there, getting to know the American culture and practicing English as well. I took care of 5 lovely kids and taught them about my culture. They learned some Portuguese too! It was a lot of fun!
I am also a Certified Portuguese Teacher and I have a degree in languages (Portuguese and English), and a License in Pedagogy.
Before I became a Portuguese for Foreigners Teacher, I had been working as an English tutor, for languages schools, and as a translator, for translation companies, where I could translate technical manuals, advertisement campaigns, and medicine instructions. During my classes, I use the communicative approach method, which aims at helping students communicate using real data in order to develop their natural strategies for language learning, enabling them to speak with confidence!
In my opinion, what helps people communicate fluently is making them understand that excellence is what matters!
Excellence in speaking a new language happens when a person is able to understand others and be understood by them. When this objective is clear, people can communicate fearlessly! This is my belief!
How about you: let´s start this fun journey?
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 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!
I first meet students for a trial lesson, to get to know their objectives, their interests, and what kind of learners they are. Each person is different and I try to adapt to every student. 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!
If you feel that this is a good fit for you, come try a lesson with me! Hope to see you soon,
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!

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.

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.
