Why Study Portuguese in Birmingham

Learn Portuguese for Social: Birmingham is a great place to meet other people with a passion for the Portuguese language and culture. For example, you can join the InterNations group for Brazilians in Birmingham. This group attracts people interested in Brazilian culture and offers them a space to practise Portuguese in a relaxed and friendly environment. And if you and your new friends are looking to try some delicious Brazilian dishes, why don’t you go to Rodizio Rico on Commercial Street? From the moment you step through the door, you will be immersed in the authentic atmosphere of Brazilian-style dining. You can taste unlimited freshly grilled meats served directly from the charcoal. And don’t forget to order feijoada and caipirinha using the Portuguese pronunciation you learn with us at Language Trainers! Meanwhile, if you prefer Portuguese cuisine instead, Fazenda on Barwick Street is the place to go!

Learn Portuguese for Culture and Travel: Birmingham offers many instances to experience Brazilian or Portuguese culture around the city. For example, you can attend the Brazilian Film Screening, carried out every week at the Barber Institute Lecture Theatre. But if you are more into Brazilian dance, then visit Samba Dance Birmingham, the home of Brazilian Carnival Dance in the city. You can attend their classes and learn to dance with every Friday evening at Nicholson School of Dance in Digbeth. Also, if you are someone who visits Portugal regularly (or wishes to in the future), then you may be motivated to learn the language (with an emphasis on communicative proficiency and travel terminology and phrases) with us at Language Trainers! In a little over two hours, you can be in the amazing city of Faro, for example, ordering food and speaking to the locals with the flawless language skills you learn in your classes with us. Contact us today to make it happen.

Learn Portuguese for Work: Knowing Portuguese will look great on your CV and will definitely help you get a new job in Birmingham. Many companies around the city, such as Caresoft, AGCO and Pertemps Network Group, value bilingual candidates and are looking to add Portuguese speakers to their teams. You can also get in contact with the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK, which organises their popular “Moving to Portugal” event and includes presentations from specialists that are designed to answer all the questions you may have about how to relocate to Portugal, whether you intend to run your business or retire there or simply to spend several months a year abroad to escape the English climate. The seminars are free to attend and mostly delivered in Portuguese, so take advantage of this opportunity to further develop your listening skills!
