Learn Portuguese Online


Below you will find our Portuguese classes offered this session. We have online group Portuguese classes and will soon offer in person group classes at our Carmel, Indiana location. Our classrooms are only 10 minutes from Fishers, Westfield and Northern Indianapolis. If you don't see the class that you are looking for, or you are interested in private instruction, please call us at 844-503-1237.

*First-time students will also have a one-time $25 Registration Fee, included in the price below.  This $25 fee helps offset the administrative cost of setting up new students in our school management system and helps keep their course tuition costs lower. After enrollment, you will receive communication within 2 weeks with your class start date or, if class is not confirmed, a delay notification.

STEP 3  (as soon as class is confirmed)

We use WhatsApp to connect our teachers and students so they can share homework, ask questions & make any necessary schedule changes (due to holidays etc).  This group is just for you, your classmates and your teacher, but our admin team is there to help you too.

If you do not already have WhatsApp, please download the app to your phone here:

Once your Portuguese group class is confirmed and one of our talented Portuguese teachers is assigned to your group, we will send an email to all students with details of the class' scheduled days and times to meet as well as the textbook and cost right away.

STEP 4  (1-2 weeks before start of class)

STEP 5  (around one week)

Before your first class meets, you'll receive a Zoom link for your online class (or arrive at our Indianapolis classroom for in-person). In class you'll have many opportunities to make sentences, practice conversations, and start improving your Portuguese fluency. After class, let your instructor know how much fun you had!

Why learn Portuguese?


Portuguese is spoken by more than 225 million people in Portugal, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, East Timor, Macau, and several other nations. Portuguese is the language of Carnival, a wild celebration famous the world over. Learn Portuguese and participate in the Carnival festivities in Brazil and Portugal that take place in the week before Lent each year. 

Is it difficult to learn Portuguese?


Portuguese is fairly easy for English speakers to learn. It shares a lot in common with other Romance languages. If you’ve ever studied Spanish, French, Italian, or Latin (even a little!) you will have an advantage in picking up Portuguese. 

Fun Facts about Portuguese

  • A Portuguese-speaking person or nation is referred to as "Lusophone" (Lusófono)

  • The majority of Portuguese speakers live in Brazil, not Portugal. (Only 5% of the Portuguese speakers in the world live in Portugal!)

  • In 2009, Portuguese added three new letters to their alphabet - k, y, and w!

Frequently Asked Questions


We do our best to fill new language classes each semester, but sometimes a class doesn’t fill before it’s start date. We may extend the start date and begin the class a few weeks later in the semester if possible. If a group class is unable to start, students have three options.
Option 1: The class will be delayed until the next semester, and the student receives a $50 class deferral credit.
Option 2: The student opts to receive private or semi-private language instruction at their preferred schedule and pays the difference in tuition.
Option 3: The student opts to withdraw their enrollment for the class and receives a full refund of the tuition paid.


Please contact your school directly to make sure they allow credit for independent projects, then contact us. We have developed curriculum especially for high school and college students, but Indy Language Center is not an accredited credit-granting institution. We can work with the language department of your student’s school to have our class curriculum approved for the student’s school. If needed, we can make adjustments to meet the school’s requirements for granting credit. Once your student's school approves a proposal to their requirements for the language program, we can ensure your student will produce a portfolio, have recorded grades, and/or take exams that will qualify him/her for the credits awarded by their school.
