Portuguese is spoken by approximately 225 million people in Portugal and Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, East Timor, Macau and several other small island nations. It is a Romance language, like Spanish, French or Italian. It shares a lot of vocabulary with Spanish, but it is not as easily intelligible to Spanish speakers as Spanish is to Portuguese speakers.

Most group classes are two hours in length with a short 5-minute break in the middle. All classes meet for a total of 20 contact hours, either once or twice per week, and run either 5 or 10 weeks, depending on the frequency of the class. We offer five levels: Beginning, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each of these levels are made up of four courses, so each level has 80 contact hours. A student who goes through all five levels will have 400 hours of instruction. If you sign up for a higher level course, we may offer it as a private or semi-private option based on demand, and your tuition is applied towards private instruction.


If you learn better in a one-on-one setting, have a tough work schedule, specific learning goals, or just need to work at a faster pace than would be possible in a group setting, then private classes are the right choice for you. You'll be able to meet with an instructor prior to starting class to outline your goals and develop a customized program based on your needs. Classes are offered at our schools or any location with mutual consent of the instructor. We encourage a minimum of 24 hours to attain any language results.


Our corporate language programs are designed for business executives and companies that need well-designed, effective language instruction for their staff, foreign workers or their spouses. We can tailor our programs to meet your company's specific needs. We can offer instruction anywhere in the country, or your employees can come to our classrooms in Carmel, IN or North Palm Beach, FL. General instruction is available in over a dozen languages, with specialized programs for English and Spanish.
