Intensive courses are a way to learn Portuguese fast. Classes are fast-paced and results are big. For students with other abilities and needs, we offer 1o1 tutoring as well. I respect the option you choose, all aspects of language skills, such as reading, speaking, writing, and listening, are focused on in class. English is kept to a minimum, particularly in the more advanced levels.  

Private classes for individuals, families or professionals

Portuguese is fast becoming an essential language in the Southern African region as well for a growing interest among Southern Africans to immigrate to Portugal. As a result, many people are now learning Portuguese to improve their social and business status.

Portugal has in recent years opened many opportunities for Portuguese emigrants, their descendants and those living with them to return to Portugal, as well as it made available many interesting benefits and incentives to those wanting to look into living, moving their lives, seeking business opportunities, studying or even retiring in Portugal.


A good handle of the Portuguese language is very important and understanding the mindset and the backgroung of its culture is abolutely vital. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

Our teachers will make sure that you feel at ease while still ensuring you are actively involved. Different varieties of Portuguese exist worldwide.

At The House of Portugal Academy, we teach standard (classic) Portuguese. This variety is understood everywhere, including Mozambique, Angola, and Brazil. It also gives you a good foundation, which you can then easily supplement with additional vocabulary as required.
