Portuguese in Dublin

In the last few years, an increasing number of Irish have been migrating to Portugal, so the Portuguese Chamber in Ireland now organises workshops called Moving to Portugal Seminars in Dublin. The seminars focus on some of the practical aspects Irish nationals should consider ahead of a move. If you are one of the many who would like to move to this sunny country, then learning Portuguese would be a smart move. But you don’t have to leave the city to experience the benefits of being fluent in Portuguese. Did you know that more than 20,000 Portuguese speakers live in Ireland, and half of them reside in Dublin? Consequently, Dublin has a variety of cultural, social and even business events available only to bilingual Portuguese speakers. The city even has its own Little Brazil, where you can have a taste of feijoada and brigadeiro as if you were in Sao Pablo! Contact us at Language Trainers today and we will start preparing a language course for you.

Don’t let social distancing stop you from learning the language you have always wanted to learn. At Language Trainers, we offer interactive online Portuguese lessons with native-speaking instructors in Dublin. Contact us to know more.

Why Study Portuguese in Dublin

Learn Portuguese for Work: Portuguese is a great skill to have on your CV and will definitely broaden your professional horizons. In case you have your own business and would like to expand into the Brazilian market, for example, you can get in touch with the Irish Business Network Brazil. This is a group of Irish individuals focused on developing Irish and Brazilian business relations and forging stronger commercial ties between the two countries. And if you are looking for a new job in Dublin, instead, we recommend contacting the Ireland Portugal Business Network, an institution that has been helping Irish and Portuguese companies to broaden their network and increase their business since 2005. Learn Portuguese and impress the members of this organisation with your language skills!

Learn Portuguese for Culture: Studying Portuguese will also enable you to explore the Portuguese and Brazilian cultural events that take place around Dublin. For example, every May, since 2015, the Dublin School of Capoeira has been organising the Brazil Day Party. This festival includes seminars of the Brazilian martial arts, Capoeira, and Brazilian Dances, such as Forro, Lambada, Coco de roda, Afro-Axe, Maculele and more! And if you would like to know more about the Portuguese culture, you can take part in the Cultura Festival on Aungier Street, a May event that celebrates the International Day of the Portuguese Language. This festival hosts workshops, music, dance, talks, performances, readings and even movie screenings in their original language. Make the most out of these fantastic events by learning some Portuguese beforehand.

Learn Portuguese for Social: And if you would like to make new friends around the city who share your passion for the Portuguese language and culture, you can do so by joining the Portuguese Dublin Meetup. This group comprises more than 500 members who can help you put your new language skills into practice while making new friends. The group meets at least once a week to share some drinks, listen to fado and even watch movies in Portuguese. Forget about reading the English subtitles after some lessons with us, and improve your listening and speaking skills by socialising with this friendly and supportive group!
