Portuguese lessons in London. Dig deeper into the vibrancy of Brazil – the sultry samba, colourful carnivals, emerging economy, fantastic foods, and of course, the bubbly Brazilians themselves - by learning to speak the Portuguese language with confidence on our fun and practical courses.

The growing economic importance of Brazil has seen Portuguese rise to become the 7th most widely-spoken language in the world. It has also seen Portuguese sitting amongst the top three fastest growing languages. It is not just economic opportunities that are spearheading the revival of Portuguese as Brazil also offers a fascinating mix of richly rewarding cultures and great travel opportunities.

The best way to scratch the surface of Brazil is to learn to speak Portuguese with our Portuguese courses in London. Our native teachers will help you to quickly become confident using Portuguese. Studying in small groups, you will have plenty of chances to practise speaking and the language is brought to life through TV programmes, audio clips and internet resources. Before you know it you will be chatting to the locals as you shake your thing at the carnivals in Rio.

“The Portuguese Beginner course was excellent, I learnt so much and found the course interesting and productive. My teacher, Claudia, was really helpful and supportive, helped build your confidence and made sure you understood everything. Also you were never afraid to ask questions, made you feel relaxed and enjoy the lesson plus we had a good group. I would totally recommend UIC to anyone if they were thinking of learning a language.”
