HOW TO OVERCOME THE SHYNESS OF SPEAKING PORTUGUESE?

Losing the fear of speaking Portuguese is a common challenge among Portuguese language students. It can be caused by the fear of making mistakes, lack of confidence in their abilities, or simply insecurity. However, it is important to remember that making mistakes is a natural part of the learning process and that practice is essential to improve skills. Here are some tips to help you overcome the shyness of speaking Portuguese:

Practice with someone you trust: Find someone with whom you feel comfortable practicing speaking Portuguese. It could be a friend, a family member, or a teacher.

Start with simple dialogues: Don’t try to start with long and complex dialogues. Begin with simple dialogues and gradually increase complexity.

Ask questions: Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you don’t understand something. It will help clarify doubts and make you feel more confident.

Take risks: Don’t be afraid to take risks and make mistakes. Remember that everyone makes mistakes, and it is through mistakes that we learn.

Listen attentively: Listen carefully to others speaking Portuguese. It will help you understand pronunciation and improve oral expression skills.

Use technological resources: Utilize apps, podcasts, videos, and other technological resources to help you practice Portuguese.

Be patient: Remember that overcoming the fear of speaking Portuguese takes time and patience. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see immediate results.

Enroll in a conversation class: If you want to practice speaking Portuguese with others, enroll in a conversation class. It will help you feel more confident speaking with strangers.

 

Remember that overcoming the fear of speaking Portuguese is a process, and it’s important to be patient with yourself. With practice and perseverance, you can overcome shyness and feel more confident speaking the Portuguese language.

My wife and I took the 3 week A1 Portuguese lessons with Lisbon Language cafe. We loved it! It was important for us to find a small class size so we’d be able to participate and receive frequent feedback. And only 3 weeks later we already find ourselves confident in using the language in public. We plan on signing up for the next A2 course ASAP. Obrigado!

I've been taking classes with Frederico from A1 through B1, and I have learned so much. I really appreciate the conversational style of the class and the emphasis on what's important for day-to-day conversation, and what can be learned over time. I truly enjoy coming to class each week, and highly recommend the Lisbon Language Cafe.

This was an amazing first experience learning Portuguese. I just completed the intensive A1 and loved every minute. Frederico and Sara were both brilliant teachers with a passion for teaching and sharing knowledge of Portuguese language, society and culture. Lisbon Language Cafe deservedly has the best reviews of any Lisbon language school and I highly recommend it to all students.

Great A1 Class in a small group to get started with Portuguese! Both teachers, Sara & Frederico, were lovely - they were always structured & prepared. Not only did they manage to teach us the Portuguese language but also convey Portuguese culture and insights! I can highly recommend joining the Language Cafe :)

Frederico is a great teacher. Great vibes and great class atmosphere. The best thing is he tells you what you need to learn and what you don't need to worry about which is so crucial for A1 & A2. Don't get bogged down with the stuff you don't need to know yet, focus on what matters.
