Portuguese in Cambridge

With a population of over 100,000 people, Cambridge is a unique city with a strong mix of culture, demographic and social diversity, intellectual vitality and technological innovation. The city has developed into an international community with more than one in five residents being foreign-born. One of the most populous ethnic groups living in the city is that of the Brazilians. Even though the majority of Brazilians living in the UK reside around London, more than 1,500 of them have made the city of Cambridge their home. Also, several Portuguese (almost 1,000 people, according to the 2011 census), attracted by the prestigious university, reside in Cambridge today, as well. Interact with the Portuguese-speaking community on a whole new level and pursue higher education in Portuguese by starting a language course today! Contact us at Language Trainers to make it happen.

Why Study Portuguese in Cambridge

For Studies: Those looking to pursue higher education in Portuguese can do so in one of the most prestigious institutions in the world: Cambridge University. This was one of the first universities in the UK to offer an honours degree in Portuguese and it is still possible to enrol today. In addition to language papers and an oral examination in the target language, students can choose different literature courses exploring the three cultural perspectives of Portugal, Brazil, and Portuguese-speaking Africa, and a linguistics option in which the structure and varieties of the modern Portuguese language are studied. You will also get to study these nations’ history and thought over some six centuries, as well as the history of the Portuguese language. This institution requires its future students to have at least an intermediate level of Portuguese, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you want assistance preparing to pass an official language accreditation exam. We can help you prepare you!

For Social: Cambridge is a multicultural city where you can meet other Portuguese speakers with similar interests. For instance, you can join the InterNations space for Brazilian Expats in Cambridge. This group was originally founded for Brazilians who lived in the city and wanted to share their experiences as immigrants, but today it welcomes anyone with an interest in learning more about the language and culture. It offers the opportunity to practise Portuguese in a relaxed environment, so don’t hesitate to join them to improve your speaking and listening skills. You can also socialise with other people passionate about the Portuguese language by joining the Cambridge University Brazilian Society, an institution created with the aim of promoting the Brazilian culture in the city by means of social and cultural events.

For Culture: You can also explore the fascinating Portuguese and Brazilian cultures around Cambridge all year long. For example, you can take part in the Brazil Week event, open to the general public and which consists of talks and conferences by native speakers that aim to promote the Brazilian culture in the city. In 2019, for instance, the event featured speakers like the writer Anderson Franca and playwright Almiro Andrade. Why not approach these artists after the event is over and try to talk to them in Portuguese? And if you would like to feel as if you were in Rio without ever leaving the city, you should not miss the annual Cambridge Carnival. Organised since 1992, this is a celebration rooted in African traditions and the largest festival in Cambridge, with thousands of attendees every year. The highlight of this event is a grand costume parade accompanied by samba and axé. Put on your colourful handmade costumes and dance to the beat of the carnival, like a true Brazilian.
