How you learn in Portuguese in Record Time

Many courses still insist on teaching languages focusing primarily on grammar, writing and memorizing vocabulary lists.

But I need to tell you the truth… these obsolete approaches won’t help you to speak a language effectively.

Why? Because they don’t focus on what really matters: listening and speaking.

They give you the false impression that you “know” some Portuguese, but guess what happens when you need to interact with Brazilians in the real world… You get lost!

Totally different from other courses, Portuguese in Record Time provides you a fast and efficient learning through a lot of listening, speaking and approaches that really work.



Ricardo spents a lot of time really getting into pronunciation, which made me feel like I was already making great progress right from the beginning. I am more confident already! Kevin Winebold – New York, USA.


I tried to learn Portuguese from two online language apps for a week or two but I got frustrated when I couldn’t get the pronunciation right and there was no one to ask.

I found Ricardo who had extensive experience in languages and online learning. He answered all my questions in a clear and constructive way. As a teacher, he is patient and always ready to give that little extra. Kenneth Ingelsson –  Skåne, Sweden.


I initially began learning Portuguese through one of the online language apps prior to learning with Ricardo. Although I had learned some basic vocabulary and greetings, I felt that I wasn’t really learning to speak or understand what I heard. With Ricardo my experience was immensely enjoyable and I could feel myself improving all the time.

The course fulfilled its promise of learning Portuguese quickly given my time constraints with work and availability. I couldn’t have expected to learn any faster unless I were living in Brazil. Daniel Lynch – Saint Paul, USA.


Ricardo explains everything well and answers my questions clearly. He’s always patient and pleasant. Scott Warren – Columbia, USA .


I was studying Portuguese for several years on and off but without practice and much dedication. So I knew grammar but didn’t have any practice and couldn’t use the grammar and couldn’t talk properly. Then, I found Ricardo. All his classes are perfectly structured and organized.

The lessons are divided into topics and each topic completely covers the necessary vocabulary, plus explains new grammar. Then, I caught myself thinking that at some point I started completely understand what Ricardo was saying. I love structured lessons and structured explanations of the language, which helped me to learn easily and with fun! Anya Mikhaylova – Moscow, Russia.


I have tried many teachers prior Ricardo and definitively he’s the best! Good lessons, fun, very focus, and helpful. I recommend him very much. Patricia Ibarra – Miami, USA.

Frequently Asked Questions

1 – Who is this course for?

This course is for absolute or false beginners.

A “true/absolute beginner” is a student who has never studied any Portuguese before. This student will come into your classroom with little more than, “Hi, my name is…” “I’m from…” if that!

A “false beginner,” on the other hand, is someone who has some knowledge of a language or who has already taken lessons at some point, but has a lot of learning gaps and needs to start again from the beginning.


2 – When does the course start?

You start immediately, you don’t need to wait for registration dates.

After payment confirmation, you will receive your data to enter the course.

All content is in our Virtual Classroom: videos, audios, exercises, PDFs…


3 – How long does it take for me to conclude the course?

The time it will take you to conclude the course depends on your motivation and amount of time you invest in your studies.

If you dedicate yourself and follow my recommendations throughout the course, you will be able to reach the basic level (A2) in 4 months and after that time you will still have 8 more months to review the content.


4 – What can I do with A2 level?

In everyday speech, the A2 level might be described as “basic” as in “I speak basic Portuguese”.

My course will give you a solid foundation in Portuguese. The basic level is sufficient for tourism and to socialize with native speakers.

You’ll learn enough Portuguese to get by. Awesome, isn’t it?


5 – How do the conversation classes work?

Every two lessons you will have the opportunity to put your Portuguese into practice for 50 minutes.

You’ll have 8 conversation classes, just you and me. Besides being much more productive, you’ll get more comfortable to express yourself.

And on that same occasion, I will also monitor your progress so far, just to make sure you’re on the right track.


6 – Tell more about the audio feature.

In addition to the conversation classes and the pronunciation videos, during the entire course you will have contact with a Portuguese teacher with years of experience (It’s me!), giving you constant feedback on your pronunciation.

This approach is much better than any application or artificial intelligence.

With this feature you will be able to visualize your progress and keep track of your performance at all stages of the course.

Imagine having this guidance in every single lesson.

This is just fantastic!


7 – Does the course offer a certificate?

Yeah, and it’s not just a cute document, it’s an indisputable proof that you really speak Portuguese.

The student gets a fraud-proof certificate in digital format.

All certificates have a QR CODE that further facilitates validation and proof of authenticity.
