Don’t worry, it’s ok if you can’t come to Brazil right now, you can still learn Portuguese with us online!
With our Part-Time Online Portuguese Course, you’ll have a taste of samba, caipirinha and summer sun without even leaving your home. Language is very powerful!
Our Portuguese language course online allows you to study and learn Portuguese… and share the experience with other students. So you will be able to practice and make friends that are willing to speak Portuguese as much as you are! Our group classes are limited to 2-6 people. You will be learning from native teachers, based in Rio de Janeiro, who are prepared to teach you everything you need to know.
You can choose when your classes will take place, Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2 hours per day (4 hours/week), and you will be able to choose from 3 timetable options to suit your time zone: from 9 am to 11 am, from 2 pm to 4 pm or from 6 pm to 8 pm (All times shown in Rio de Janeiro time). You will meet in a virtual classroom, created by the school. Don’t worry, it’s very easy to get into the classroom and if you have any problems or doubts we will be online to help you. In this online Portuguese course, you will have access to all the material you study in each class as well as out-of-class exercises and all of our Dicas do Dia to practice between classes.
To make it easier for you to take advantage of all the hours purchased, for each 10-week package you will be entitled to 1 modification, notifying the school via email or whatsapp at least 5 days in advance; or if you buy a semester (24-weeks package) you will be entitled to 3 modifications free of charge.
In the case that you already know which days you won’t be able to attend classes, and notify us upon registration, those will also be free of charge.
Different to other online courses, the school and our teachers we will watch your progress and give a personalized follow up of your classes in order to put you every week in a group with classmates of the same Portuguese level. So, you can change groups weekly depending on how your performance in class is. It will help you to always be in a group with your current Portuguese level while advancing at your own pace. Language courses usually use a rigid system where all students in the same group need to study all the lessons together at the same pace, this means there are always groups with students of slightly different levels as every person has a different speed learning. With Rio & Learn, if you need to evolve faster you can advance through the classes faster and you even can skip lessons that you don’t need anymore, on the other hand if you prefer to take it slower, it is not a problem, you will go at a comfortable pace and reinforce lessons without repeating the same educational content.
Once you’ve completed your course, you will be awarded a certificate. So, if you need proof that you can speak Portuguese, this is an online Portuguese course with a certificate.
What are you waiting for? Now is the perfect time to learn a new language and exercise your brain. Are you ready to learn Portuguese online?
