Course Features

Understand Spoken Portuguese With Ease

The course provides a true immersion in spoken Portuguese with a strong emphasis on real-life communication. 

PORTUGUÊS FLUENTE is meticulously designed to mirror realistic conversations, capturing the natural flow of spoken Portuguese. This includes instruction on reductions, contractions, connected speech (watch video) and even different accents (watch video).

Using Comprehensible Input (watch video), the course progressively immerses you in the Portuguese language through a variety of listening sources, including videos, dialogs, audio summaries, and short stories.

The combination of realistic conversations with a variety of listening sources will enable you to communicate easily in practical situations, making your language skills immediately applicable and relevant to your real-world needs.

Verb Conjugation Mastery

In Portuguese learning, few challenges are as significant as verb conjugation. Knowing how to properly conjugate verbs (read article) in Portuguese is not just important; it’s crucial.

If you don’t conjugate verbs properly, people may have difficulty understanding you, and your ability to express yourself effectively is compromised. 

But fear not, with more than two decades of teaching Portuguese under my belt, I’ve developed a set of strategies that ensure verb conjugation will become second nature to you. Some strategies include:

Progressive Tense Introductions: PORTUGUÊS FLUENTE introduces verbs and verb tenses progressively, starting with the most commonly used ones.

Real-Life Relevance: PORTUGUÊS FLUENTE makes verb conjugations engaging and relevant by embedding them in practical, real-life situations. This approach ensures that what you learn directly applies to your daily interactions.

Recall Over Recognition: PORTUGUÊS FLUENTE prioritizes your ability to recall verb conjugations rather than mere recognition, enhancing your active command of the language.

The 3,000 Most Used Words

Why is it so important to learn vocabulary? It’s simple, the more words you know, the more things you can talk about.

Just to give you an idea, a beginner Portuguese learner knows around 500 words, whereas a learner considered fluent knows at least 3,000 words! 

But they are not just any words; they are the most used in everyday situations, such as: greeting people, making small talk, shopping, going out etc. In other words, It’s a highly frequent and useful vocabulary!

By focusing on learning these words, you not only save time and effort but also gain the ability to communicate effectively from the beginning.

In addition to equipping you with all that vocabulary, PORTUGUÊS FLUENTE also provides you with tons of useful expressions to make your speech more natural and closer to that of a native speaker, examples:

  • E aí? – What’s up?
  • Deixa pra lá – never mind
  • De jeito nenhum! – no way!
  • Sei lá – I have no idea, beats me

Progressive Learning

The approach at PORTUGUÊS FLUENTE is akin to building a sturdy house, brick by brick, starting with a solid foundation and gradually adding layers. 

We begin with the simplest pieces, the fundamental building blocks of the language. As you become comfortable with these basics, we add more advanced concepts step by step. The course applies the same step-by-step principle to teach grammar, progressively and in small doses.

As an Instructional Designer (read article), I took great care to ensure that you follow a logical and structured content sequence. This carefully crafted curriculum provides students with a systematic and efficient learning path, ensuring that each lesson builds upon the previous one. 

In addition to making learning less intimidating, this gradual teaching approach allows you to acquire a good grammar foundation and a wide vocabulary without being overwhelmed by too much information.

Tutoring 7 Days a Week

I strongly believe that personalized guidance can make all the difference in your learning journey. 

That’s why I offer you tutoring 7 days a week. Imagine having a Portuguese teacher available to clarify your doubts and provide valuable feedback at any time, at the click of a button, even on weekends and holidays. 

Here, your learning journey is truly prioritized and supported every day of the week!

On-the-go Learning

I understand that life can be hectic, but this should not be a barrier for you to learn Portuguese. 

This is where PORTUGUÊS FLUENTE comes in! The course platform provides a true on-the-go learning experience, enabling a smooth transition across all devices, so you can switch from your computer to your smartphone without missing a beat.
