Our part-time Portuguese courses focus on communication skills, with particular emphasis on developing your speaking skills. We will introduce you gradually to the new language and ensure that your speaking and reading skills develop through practice and reinforcement. We include grammar in our course as an understanding of the grammar is important to help you understand the structures of the language. In our lessons, English is kept to a minimum to help you become accustomed to Portuguese. Our teachers will make sure that you feel at ease while still ensuring you are actively involved.
Different varieties of Portuguese exist worldwide. At Wits Language School we teach standard Portuguese. Standard Portuguese is understood everywhere, including Mozambique, Angola and Brazil. Standard Portuguese also gives you a good foundation, which you can then easily supplement with additional vocabulary as required.
