AI / A2

For beginners, we offer two levels: A1 and A2 Portuguese. At level A1 the language is completely new to you, you maybe know how to say hi, but with the UPB Portuguese course in no more than a few weeks introducing yourself, reading a menu, and asking for directions won’t be a problem anymore. At A2 you’ll know more about the Portuguese language and culture. You’ll be able to talk about the past and have longer conversations. If someone is speaking to you, you can understand and speak the basics. 

BI / B2

At levels B1 and B2 we call you a paloma, also known as an intermediate. At these levels, you’ll learn how to start and maintain a conversation. Your Portuguese speaking skills will improve by practicing, using various speaking exercises, based on your interests. From now on your Portuguese vocabulary will grow and you’ll be able to do more than just order port in Porto. After these Portuguese courses, you can walk with confidence through the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Portuguese speakers can understand you, vice versa. Have you always wondered what the secret of port is and would you like to see it for yourself or even make it? Well, at B2 level you will be able to speak even faster and have more complicated conversations, the perfect time to answer all these questions!

CI / C2

You’ve made it to the last levels, the expert levels, C1 and C2 Portuguese. At these levels, you will become the next expert in speaking the Portuguese language. We’ll teach you how to speak Portuguese in such a way that the native population won’t even notice that you’re not Portuguese. These courses are specially made to refresh your current language skills, to master the Portuguese language. Doing business with Portuguese speaking countries has never been so easy. By digging deeper into the grammar and expanding your Portuguese vocabulary to the fullest, you’ll learn how to speak and write formal Portuguese. 


Mascot Well done


"After following the Business English Program at the language school, I noticed my confidence with the language increased quite a lot"

I had already a very good English level before I got lessons from the teachers of Una Paloma Blanca, but after following the Business English Program at the language school, I noticed my confidence with the language increased quite a lot, specially when it came to speeches and team presentations. Thank you very much for all your help!

"I liked most that the team of teachers immediately understood my needs and they focused on my preferences helping me achieving my goals in no time."

Because I work in a department where English skills are very important to communicate with clients, I decided to follow a private intensive English course where I could quickly brush up my English knowledge and bring my writing and speaking skills to a C1 level. I liked most that the team of teachers immediately understood my needs and they focused on my preferences helping me achieving my goals in no time.
