Brazilian Portuguese Courses

At inlingua we are very happy to cater for those who prefer to learn Brazilian Portuguese.  Let us know your preference when reserving your course.     

Brazilian Portuguese is different to European Portuguese in much the same way that American English and English from the UK are also different.

There are three main areas of differences:

  • Accent - It is immediately apparent to the trained ear whether the speaker is from Brazil or from Portugal. Most people find the Brazilian accent clearer and easier to understand.
  • Vocabulary - Up to 15% of the words in Brazilian and European Portuguese are different. However most of these are limited to flora, fauna, foods etc. In terms of day to day language there are very few differences.
  • Grammar - There are very few differences in grammar between the two. Again, the Brazilian variation is probably more siple for the language learner. (The Brazilians have stopped using the "tu" form of the verb, for example, still very prevalent in Portugal.

At inlingua, while the group lessons focus on European Portuguese private lessons can easily be geared towards Brazilian. Our Brazilian POrtuguese courses will prepare you for living and working in Brasil.
