THE IMPORTANCE OF CONVERSATION IN LEARNING PORTUGUESE

Practicing speaking is essential to becoming fluent in any language, including Portuguese. Here are some reasons why oral practice is super important for learning Portuguese:

  1. Helps build confidence: Speaking in a foreign language can be intimidating. However, regular practice helps build confidence in your ability to communicate better and better.

  2. Improves pronunciation: By practicing speaking, you can enhance your pronunciation and become more understandable to native speakers of Portuguese. Be patient; pronunciation in Portuguese can be challenging!

  3. Helps solidify vocabulary and grammar: By speaking, you automatically use and reinforce the vocabulary and grammar that you are learning. If you listen carefully and actively, you will improve your speaking.

  4. Enhances oral comprehension: Listening to and responding to native speakers of Portuguese helps improve your oral comprehension of the language

  5. Helps develop communication skills: Oral practice helps in developing communication skills, such as the ability to express oneself clearly and effectively communicate in various situations.

  6. Makes learning more enjoyable: Oral practice is a fun and challenging activity, making learning more enjoyable.

    There are numerous ways to practice speaking in Portuguese: talking with native speakers of Portuguese, taking speaking classes, participating in conversation groups, recording your own voice and speech, and listening to it to identify errors. And don’t forget that consistent practice is the key to becoming fluent in Portuguese! Good luck!

I just finished the introductory A1 course this past week. This was a great experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to start making progress in Portuguese quickly. Though I have a background in French and Spanish, I had no familiarity with Portuguese going in. In just two weeks, my listening and reading comprehension have skyrocketed, and now I will continue on to the next level to make more progress in my speaking. This class is also a great way to meet other people who are interested in learning the language and culture, and I'm happy to have made some new friends in the process!

I've never really learned a second language and, in fact, did not do well when I took the required Spanish classes in high school. I thought I was a lost cause. After moving to Lisbon I decided to enroll with Lisbon Language Cafe and I couldn't be more impressed. First of all, because the class size is so small and because they focus on speaking/engagement, I really got to know the other students - it was just so much more fun than I could have ever expected. I came with hope and left with new friendships and the foundational skills needed to navigate daily life here in Portugal (give and receive directions, order food, communicate with doctors, etc...). I don't normally write reviews but feel compelled to do so for Lisbon Language School because of how good my experience was. I am excited to continue my education using this school and honestly feel that the teachers are vested in ensuring my success. Muito obrigado por me ensinarem português!

Update: I just finished the A2 classes and I’m looking forward to B1! Going to Lisbon Language Café has helped me a lot in improving my Portuguese. I think that if I did not take these classes, I would’ve been stuck speaking in present tense with everyone. Now I’m able to use multiple tenses which makes my discussions more fluid and allows me to improve my understanding skills as well. My overall grammar, conjugation and vocabulary has improved a lot. Cherry on the cake: I noticed that even when I have a bad day, my mood switches during these classes as the vibe is always super nice 🙂 I attached a picture from the lessons with the best, most hard-working student of our group. — Previous review: I attended the A1 "night" classes. The class is well-structured, we moved fast, and got to learn many useful things that allow me to speak more comfortably already (vocabulary, conjugation, etc.) Frederico is super nice, friendly, and laughs at the worst jokes, which made me happy. Now, I must master all the knowledge he passed on to us before getting in the A2 group. BIG bonus points for letting me come with my dog to class. Would definitely recommend these Portuguese classes to anyone. Thank you for everything!

I had such a great time in this class. Frederico's approach is easy and fun. He equips you with a lot of information. Do your homework!! He even had class online when I was ill and couldn't make it in person. His printouts he gave me still come in use. This class gave me the courage to try speaking in my daily life, even with errors, and I understand much more. I had a great time in this class. Estou praticando mais. Obrigado!

Lisbon Language Cafe offers excellent Portuguese A1 group lessons led by a dedicated teacher. Frederico’s expertise and teaching style impressed me whereas he also created a supportive and engaging learning environment, emphasizing vocabulary, grammar, and conversation skills (however also making it practical for daily use!). Individual needs were addressed and patient guidance provided. Also cultural insights were integrated into the lessons. The comfortable atmosphere, good group and lots of laughs contributed to a pleasant learning experience. If you're looking for Portuguese lessons, I highly recommend Lisbon Language Café!
