Portuguese level 4

Course information

This course is intended for those students who have a little knowledge of the Portuguese language. During this course, you will increasingly expand your active language skills.

The primary focus of the course is an expansion of your standard speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in Portuguese.

Standard Portuguese or Brazilian Portuguese

During the Portuguese language courses, you will be taught by teachers with experience and expertise who are native Portuguese speakers. The courses are suitable for people who want to learn standard Portuguese or Brazilian Portuguese, as the grammar rules of both kinds are largely the same, with a few minor differences. 

When registering for the course, please indicate which kind of Portuguese you wish to learn. The teacher will prepare the lessons according to the preference of the majority of the group. During the lessons the differences in pronunciation and vocabulary will be addressed as necessary, giving you a basic knowledge of both varieties to meet your specific needs.

If you successfully complete this course, you will receive a certificate showing the level you have attained and you will be able to continue to Portuguese level 5.

After you have registered for this course, we will invite you for an assessment to determine your level. We recommend that you enrol at least two weeks before the start of the course. If you enrol later than this, we cannot guarantee there will be time for the intake procedure.
