Top Portuguese Tutor related questions

You can find a Portuguese tutor easily through Airtasker! Our platform lets you book live lessons with a local tutor, or online classes if this is something you’d prefer. Choose between Brazilian and European Portuguese, start beginner lessons, or look for more advanced tutors - whatever you need, we’re here to help you find a tutor who can help. To start looking for a Portuguese especialista, tap the “Post a task” button on this page. 

According to the Foreign Service Institute, it’ll take you 600 hours and about six months of practice to become fluent in Portuguese. If you are already taking advanced lessons, you might well be on your way to fluency. Perfect for when you’re about to take a Macau vacation or move your entire family to Portugal. Haven’t got enough time to master the language? You can hire a translator through Airtasker as well. 

There are a few differences in grammar and spelling - for example, the letter ‘p’ is sometimes audible in Brazilian Portuguese and silent in European Portuguese. Brazilian Portuguese also tends to convert some nouns into verbs, or take words from American English. Meanwhile, European Portuguese remains more “committed” to its Latin roots. Lastly, European Portuguese is more formal. Once you’ve decided what variation of Portuguese you’d like to study, use our platform to find a Portuguese tutor and start your lessons.

Most native English speakers find Spanish more comfortable to learn compared to Portuguese, because of available resources/materials and pronunciation differences. Before you decide what language to learn, you may want to consider your learning motivations (business, travel, personal relationships). Or, you can book beginner lessons for both Spanish and Portuguese to get a taste of both. From here, you can decide if and when you’d like to take up advanced Portuguese.

Portuguese is an official language in Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Macau, Cape Verde, and São Tomé and Príncipe. Are you travelling to any of these places anytime soon? Then you better book your Portuguese tutor now and start those lessons! Need a house sitter while you’re on an extended vacation? You can book one easily through Airtasker, too. 

This depends on the Tasker you’ll book. If you want to learn advanced Portuguese, indicate this in your task post. You can also mention what you already know or what you’ve learned so far. This step helps filter out Taskers who only offer Portuguese for beginners. If you need help with Portuguese for specific reasons like business, you can add this to your task post. Airtasker can also help you find writers and translators who can help you with related work concerns.

What do Portuguese lessons include?

Portuguese lessons involve a tutor who can go to your home or office or one who can conduct online classes. Session lengths may vary depending on your budget, availability, and other needs. Your tutor may have their teaching methods, such as flashcards, written exams, oral exercises, and more. In general, here’s what you can expect your Portuguese tutor to cover: 

Portuguese pronunciation

This depends on whether you’d like to learn European Portuguese or Brazilian Portuguese. Brazilian Portuguese has open vowels, and Brazilian accents are lilting and have a strong cadence. This makes it easier to understand compared to European Portuguese. You’ll also need to familiarise yourself with silent letters, like the “f” in fazer (to do). 

Useful words and phrases

Your tutor then starts you off on useful phrases, which may vary depending on your learning motivations. These usually include “Bom dia” (Good morning), “Oi” (Hi), “Por favor” (Please), and “Não compreendo” (I don’t understand). Suppose you’ll be doing business in a Portuguese-speaking country. In that case, you’ll also need to learn terms like “fluxo de caixa” (cash flow), “juros” (interest cost of borrowed capital), and “mercadoria” (product). 

Other useful words and phrases that your tutor may cover include the Portuguese words for different food and parts of a house or community.

Verb conjugation and grammar

You’ll also need to learn Portuguese pronouns, verbs, and how to use each pronoun or verb conjugation properly. Take note that there is a designation between the formal “you” and the informal “you” in European Portuguese. Also, verb conjugations may vary between Brazilian and European Portuguese. Conjugations are quite tricky to get the hang of, so your tutor may remind you to practice.

Listening and reading exercises

Once you’ve gotten the hang of the basics, your tutor may give you listening and reading exercises to test your comprehension. It’s also helpful to explore using apps, listening to songs, or watching videos that use the Portuguese language. 

Written and oral exercises

If you can understand what you heard or read, you can move on to the next challenge: writing and speaking in Portuguese! Your tutor may have you write essays in Portuguese or converse with them. Some experts recommend starting talking or writing as early as possible since you can only really be considered fluent if you “produce” and “receive” in Portuguese.
