Portuguese courses

in Barcelona

All four language skills speaking, listening, writing and reading are integrated in our Portuguese courses, the same way you encounter them in real life. We work in small groups, since we want to adjust ourselves to each student’s learning evolution. Since everyone studies Portuguese because of different reasons or needs, we take into account your particular interests in order to motivate you.

Our Portuguese language courses are available for all levels. If you are not an absolute beginner, you will take a level test before the start of the course. You will be placed in a group that corresponds with your own level of Portuguese. Our teachers are native speakers with a University degree and many years of experience in teaching Portuguese.

We offer extensive courses during the academic year, intensive summer courses and private courses.

If you are looking for a customized in-company course, please contact us for a price quote.

Daniela
Portuguese teacher

Working at Versión Original: since 2015

“I am Brazilian, I come from Rio de Janeiro. In 2010 I left my city – and my country – to live in London. I lived there for 3 years. I did a Master in Translation and I started to work in my new professional area. But the grey sky of London is not ideal for a girl used to the sun and the sea of Rio.

This is why decided to move to Barcelona, 4 years ago; here I started a new profession: teaching Portuguese as second language. This is the way to keep connected to my roots and it gives me the chance to be in touch with a lot of people, mostly my students!

Plus, Barcelona has many things in common with Rio, like the weather, the geography, the sea and the mountains surrounding the city, and the pleasant life outdoors.”

Favourite Portuguese expression: “Parabèns!” It’s the Portuguese expresison for “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”. I love to “teach” and sing with my students the song “Parabéns pra você”, the happy birthday song, in Portuguese-Brazilian version!
