We consider it to be the major goal of our program to have you use Brazilian Portuguese in as large a variety of real-life situations as possible. We recognize the significance of practicing the Portuguese both inside and outside the classroom. To that end, our Brazilian Portuguese courses have been designed to build fluency in both the spoken and the written language. Communication in a warm and relaxed environment is an important feature of our programs, as is homework, which includes exercises for review and practice of the material taught in class. Moreover, by keeping the class size limited to twelve students, we ensure that each student will be able to actively participate. Teachers are available outside of class to answer any questions related to the course. We pride ourselves in a curriculum geared towards a sustainable learning and proficiency of the Portuguese language.
Portuguese Language Institute originated in 2000 with the support of the Brazilian Consulate and the United Nations in New York For nearly 10 years it has offered Portuguese language courses and Brazilian cultural awareness for children and adults. In our small-group classes, located in midtown Manhattan and taught by University teaching professionals, students advance their speaking, presentation, accent, vocabulary, and writing skills with colleagues and friends who share similar interests.
