My goal is to develop your communicative competence in the Portuguese language, whether for professional, academic, or personal use, and to familiarize you with the Brazilian culture.
My approach is student-centered learning, so we will build class formats that best suit your needs.

I can help you with grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, and conversation. We will talk about topics that are of interest to you, as well as articles that we will read together.
I offer materials for all levels and interests, such as general Portuguese, business Portuguese, academic Portuguese, Portuguese for kids and teenagers, idioms, presentation, prep for the Celpe-bras exam, pronunciation, and so forth.

Olá! My name is Carolina and it's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Portuguese, and I have been teaching my mother tongue for over 5 years at university level. I like to diversify the materials I use as much as possible to focus on all different aspects of the language, but I tend to prioritize speaking practice. I have taught courses as diverse as Spoken Portuguese, Advanced Writing, Portuguese Culture/Literature, and even Sports Readings in Portuguese. Your language goals will always play a part when planning our lessons, so don't hesitate to tell me what you expect.
If you plan on visiting Portugal as a tourist or have Portuguese speaking friends/relatives you may prefer a conversational approach, but if you're interested in using the language for business, you may be interested in learning how to compose an e-mail in Portuguese (an underestimated art form). No matter what your motivation to learn Portuguese is, I am keen in hearing about it. I'll also try to accomodate your interests as much as possible.
If you are curious about the story of how I became a Portuguese teacher, read ahead:
I studied Modern Languages at the University of Coimbra (look it up; it's one of the oldest universities in Europe!) and Literature at the University of Glasgow (quite a stunner as well). One day, a Chinese friend at the pub asked me whether I'd like to apply to his home university, all the way in China, as a Portuguese lecturer. I said 'no way,' so naturally, I ended up moving there shortly after and living in the beautiful city of Harbin for 3 amazing years. Not only did that experience provide me with adventure, but also a lifelong calling: I have loved teaching ever since. After returning to Portugal, I taught for two years at Beijing Sport University (online). Now I work as a freelance online teacher and divide my time between Portugal and Sweden.See Reviews From Students
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 am a devoted language teacher, motivated by my passion for languages and my curiosity about diverse countries and cultures.
Language learning is an immersive journey that requires time and dedication. It not only enhances our understanding of language itself but also provides us with profound insights into varied cultures and worldviews. Consequently, it brings people closer together, enriching both our personal and professional lives.
I firmly believe that customized lessons are the key to effective learning. That is why I exclusively offer one-to-one lessons for adults, ensuring that we can delve into topics that genuinely captivate your interest.
Throughout our classes, you will receive personalised feedback to optimise your progress. Together, we will employ an interactive platform, allowing us to write in real-time and complete exercises during the lesson. Following each session, you will have the opportunity to download materials containing pertinent corrections, texts, and detailed notes on grammar and pronunciation. Moreover, I will equip you with strategies and resources to facilitate self-study and continuous learning at your own pace.
Prepare yourself for dynamic lessons designed to foster independence and proficiency in language acquisition. We will focus on developing all four fundamental language skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Furthermore, I will teach you idiomatic expressions and cultivate cultural awareness that will prove invaluable when travelling or engaging with native speakers.
At the conclusion of each lesson, you will receive a comprehensive report encompassing discussion notes, error corrections, and clear guidance on how to progress and maintain your knowledge. Your lessons will revolve around your unique needs and challenges.

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.

Hello, my name is Alice and I'm Brazilian, I was born in the city of Rio de Janeiro. I currently live in Mexico and have dedicated myself in teaching my mother language, Portuguese, to foreigners. I am a Portuguese teacher graduated by a Brazilian University, which makes me able to offer my didactic knowledge in the teaching and learning of the Portuguese language to my students.
My classes are focused on the communicative method, to develop all 4 skills required to become fluent in a language (writing, speaking, listening and reading). I plan my classes dynamically, with scenes from movies/series, music, memes, lots of visual resources, games and also exercises so that my students can have fun, learn easily and not be afraid to speak. I try to create a friendly environment so that my students feel free to ask questions, participate and thus develop their knowledge of the language. I also speak English, Spanish and German, so that I can help my students in case of any doubts that cannot be clarified in Portuguese, but of course I always try to speak in Portuguese during my classes to develop speaking skills from the beginning. I love teaching my mother language and I believe in teaching the real language, the one that the student will really hear from a native speaker and that is why my classes are based on activities, vocabulary and teaching techniques that mix the playful with the traditional methods in balance so that all students achieve excellent knowledge and full practice of the language.See Reviews From Students

I have experience teaching Portuguese to children, teenagers and adults. I teach from completely beginners to advanced students. I can also help you if you are preparing for the Celpe-Bras or Cilp test.
I like to create an active and interesting learning environment. I bring texts with exercises, audios, videos, and other resources to the classes, presenting the variety of Brazilian culture. My aim is to strengthen the student’s autonomy and I will encourage you to speak as much Portuguese as possible during our time together, respecting, however, your individual pace of learning.

We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.
To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the 'Help' button in the bottom-right. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.
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.Arabic tutors | Chinese tutors | Dutch tutors | English tutors | French tutors | German tutors | Greek tutors | Italian tutors | Japanese tutors | Korean tutors | Romanian tutors | Russian tutors | Spanish tutors | Swedish tutors | Thai tutors
