European and Brazilian Portuguese
cannot be taught together in the same classes.

The differences between the two Portuguese variants are incomparably more significant than, for example, those between American and British English.
Nevertheless, all our relevant competitors in London offer mixed European and Brazilian Portuguese classes.
Most schools elsewhere, including Portugal and Brazil, focus on one variant only.

We offer both variants in separate European and Brazilian Portuguese courses, taught by native speaker professional teachers from Portugal or Brazil.
Portuguese teaching of quality requires separate courses, as we do.

The temptation of organising mixed groups has a financial justification: grouping students in separate groups (making them economically viable) poses an insurmountable problem to non-Portuguese-specialised language schools.
But these hybrid classes are an ineffective and painful exercise for teachers and students.

As the UK's largest Portuguese-only school, we invest all our resources in Portuguese teaching services, making it easier for us to form groups in both variants for all levels.
And that's the only way to be serious about teaching Portuguese. No clever arrangements can bypass this reality.

Although we don't do "cheap courses", our courses are not expensive either.
We offer 26 hours of training - including 6 hours of revising & catching up workshops - for £225.00 (online) or £249.40 (face-to-face). These are the most cost-effective Portuguese courses on offer among the prominent providers in London.

If you need advice on what variant you should choose, do not hesitate to contact us. But here's some preliminary information: the two main variants are the Brazilian (exclusive of Brazil) and the European (shared by Portugal and the other Portuguese speaking countries, like Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, and others).
For example, if you aim to use Portuguese with people from Portugal, Angola, or Mozambique, you must be taught by a native speaker of European Portuguese, with dedicated learning materials from Portugal, in dedicated classes of Brazilian Portuguese.
On the other hand, if your objective is to speak with Brazilian friends or businesses, you must be taught by a native speaker of Brazil, using learning materials from Brazil, in dedicated classes of Brazilian Portuguese.

Learning the variants separately is necessary to "sound right", understand and be clearly understood by the native speaker of each variant.
Therefore, we help students interested in learning seriously and effectively in the only way possible: in separate classes.
