Learning a new language does not only give you more professional or social opportunities: it gives you insights into a new world. And learning Portuguese will give you access to a world of over 250 million speakers that live in places as different as Brazil, Macau or Mozambique.
Don’t worry if you would like to learn but have never uttered a word of Portuguese before. With motivation, concentration, and a good teacher, soon you’ll find yourself having conversations with native and non-native speakers alike. There are many terms that, as an English speaker, you already know, such as zebra, lingo (from Portuguese língua), or piranha.
Plus, European Portuguese pronunciation is syllable-timed (same as English!), which means speakers tend to shorten unstressed words, so you’ll have an advantage when learning pronunciation being a native English speaker.
Would you like to get started with Portuguese, whether face-to-face or online, but you are not sure how? Keep on reading and discover how to learn Portuguese in the fastest and most meaningful way possible!
