Portuguese is the eighth most spoken language in the world and the fifth most spoken language in Toronto. Brazil alone has 184 million Portuguese speakers waiting to welcome you warmly and show you the secrets to their natural wonderland. Just think of the rythmic beats of Carnival, the worlds largest party. If that's not enough, imagine yourself visiting some of the most beautiful islands in the world off the Coast of Portugal. In addition, Portuguese will help you on the road to understanding the other latin languages like Italian, Spanish and French.
All Portuguese lessons are held at Hansa's 2160 Yonge Street campus. For private classes held off campus, within
Toronto, an additional 20% surcharge will be added to the course fee.
Group Portuguese Language Programs in Toronto
Hansa offers three levels of group Portuguese classes,
all of which use the book Fala Brasil (by Pierre Coudry & Elizabeth Fontao) as the primary resource. Curriculum is designed for Brazilian Portuguese. However, teachers will differentiate between what is said in Brazil and what is used in Portugal. These eight-week programs are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Books and materials are included in the course fee. Payment and registration must be received before the registration deadline.
Portuguese Level 1 - $380
In Hansa's Level 1 Portuguese course students will cover units 1 to 5 of Fala Brasil. They will learn to read and pronounce
the Portuguese language and become familiar with the greetings, numbers,
days of the week, as well as other day-to-day vocabulary.
Upon completion of the course students will be able to ask simple
questions like directions, prices and general information in present tense. They will also be able to order food in a restaurant and make hotel reservations. This program serves as the essential basics for anyone travelling to Brazil, Portugal, East Timor, Mozambique or Angola.
Portuguese Level 2 - $380
The Level 2 Portuguese course reviews units 1 to 5 (of Fala Brasil) and goes on to cover units 6 to 10. Apart from a great deal of new vocabulary and irregular verbs, students will also learn general grammar like comparatives, superlatives and the perfect tenses (present, past, continuous). Students begin to follow dialogue, construct sentences and speak in broken Portuguese.
Portuguese Level 3 - $380
Hansa's Level 3 Portuguese course reviews everything in level 1 and 2 and goes on to finish the book. New grammar includes future tenses, passive and active voice, the subjunctive, etc. Upon completion of this course students should be able to speak, understand and carry a conversation with minor mistakes. After level 3 we recommend lots of review and practice through either private instruction or programs at one of our partner schools in Brazil or Portugal.
