Portuguese 1

A first taste of the Portuguese language, this course is for complete beginners. No previous knowledge of the language is required. By the end of this course, you will already know enough to “get by” in Portuguese: you will be able to cope with the most common everyday situations by asking and answering simple questions, and you will be able to understand people when they speak to you about the situations covered.
