What you'll learn in this basic portuguese class:

Olá e Bem-Vindo! ABC Languages Total Beginner Portuguese is for students with little to no background in Portuguese. In the first 6 weeks, you will be introduced to basic vocabulary and sentence structure in the present tense. In 8-12 weeks, students can expect to cover most of the present tense, negations, questions, and adjectives, as well as some past tense usage. 

To reserve a space you need only sign up for the minimum 6 weeks here on Coursehorse. If you would like a longer program, ABC will send you options on how to upgrade to a longer enrollment (8 or 12 weeks) by your 2nd class.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us. We're always happy to help.

Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

Cancellations made 3 or more days in advance will receive a full credit for a rescheduled date with this provider   


Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

Withdrawal from a contracted course must occur at least seven (7) business days prior to the start of the program for a full refund. Any subsequent withdrawal from a contracted course, for whatever reason, will result in forfeiture of the total cost of enrollment.

Enrollments are for consecutively scheduled classes. If you miss a class during a 4, 6 or 8-week enrollment, the class will be forfeited. Students who have purchased a 12-week enrollment will be allowed to miss any one (1) class and will receive a make-up class which will come in the form of a 13th consecutive class. Please note, this is not a private lesson.

Classes may be canceled due to inclement weather. We will contact all students in the event of a cancellation.You agree to the above statements and you allow ABC Language Exchange to bill your card for the minimum enrollment. If, for any reason, you must cancel your enrollment, you must do so seven (7) business days before the first class.

Private Lesson Cancellation Policy: If you need to cancel a scheduled class, you must do so the business day before 24 hours before the scheduled lesson, otherwise you will be charged for the class.

The enrollment in a group is for consecutively scheduled classes. However, in case students miss a class, we do send an email with the material covered, the homework assignment and handouts (if any). This way, students are able to study the material, do the homework and be prepared for the subsequent class.

In general, if students miss one class, is not something that would jeopardize the course. However, each student has a way to process new information.

Question from Ellen C.
I am going to Portugal and want to learn basics to get around for my trip there. Is this class appropriate for me?
Answer from Oliver L. Verified Student
I never wound up taking the class but I took another class there (Russian) and the instructors were well-prepared native speakers so I would assume it's also true for their Portuguese (although it's likely the instructors will be Brazilian rather than Portuguese, if this is an issue for you I would ask them directly and/or research it yourself).
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Ellen! ABC Languages teach Brazilian Portuguese in group classes. European Portuguese use some different vocabulary and conjugations. However, the pronunciation from European Portuguese is quite different from Brazilian Portuguese. Therefore, although Portuguese should understand Brazilians, students who start learning Brazilian Portuguese might have some difficulty understanding European Portuguese. The classes are a blend between a formal approach - focus on grammar and the basic structure of the language and an interactive approach geared toward situations that promote verbal interaction among the students while building up vocabulary. The primary focus of groups classes is on the conversation. Hope this helps!

Question from Anonymous
Hello; Is this class spoken in Portuguese or Brazilian?
Answer from Elizabeth L. Verified Educator
We teach Brazilian Portuguese in our group classes. Our classes are a blend between a formal approach - focus on grammar and the basic structure of the language ­and an interactive approach geared toward situations that promote verbal interaction among the students while building up vocabulary. The primary focus of our group's classes is on the conversation. Best, Alice
