This is why students struggle to understand what Brazilians say, because they only know one Portuguese, the formal Portuguese, the Portuguese from books.

Portuguese in Record Time presents a new, interesting and efficient way to learn Portuguese.

My course is aimed at people with little or no knowledge of Portuguese, it’s made up of 138 videos, distributed in 15 lessons

Each lesson covers a specific topic and at the end of the course you’ll be able to communicate with confidence in everyday situations, such as:

  • Giving personal information;
  • Expressing your likes and dislikes;
  • Hanging out; 
  • How to describe people and things;
  • Talking about habits and routines;
  • Food and restaurant;
  • Making suggestions and invitations; 
  • Shopping and services;
  • Travel and transportation;
  • Sightseeing and getting around the city.
You will learn my language through situations that you would come across living in Brazil. That’s what I mean by real-life Portuguese!

Speak like a native


Improper pronunciation can lead to misunderstanding and ineffective communication. That’s why you will have advanced pronunciation lessons throughout the course. 

If you enjoyed my pronunciation series on YouTube, you’ll love Portuguese in Record Time!

Ok, Ricardo, but how do I know if I’m pronouncing the words correctly? 

It’s easy, you’ll record your voice and I’ll give you personalized feedback on your pronunciation.

Imagine having this guidance in every single lesson, this is just fantastic!

Prepare yourself for the compliments, because you will take your pronunciation to a high level!

One-on-one classes


In classroom settings pressured by peers, some students fear answering questions, making mistakes or taking risks. 

Besides being more productive, one-on-one classes are less stressful than group teaching, because there are no wrong answers or silly questions and students don’t have to fear being themselves.

You’ll feel more comfortable expressing yourself.

Smart flashcards


For language learners, flashcards are one of the best study tools, because they promote studying through active recall, which is one of the practices through which our brains learn most effectively.

Flashcards are engaging activities that promote a lasting understanding of key concepts.

You will have access to exclusive flashcards that will help you retain the main concepts of each lesson, and the best of all… with audio!



In addition to all the resources above, you can clarify your doubts at any time, in each lesson there is a comments section for you to interact with me.

I’m sure this is the first time you’ll have a teacher at your disposal 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
