About Portuguese Program
Culture Yard’s Portuguese classes focus on learning the language and introducing Brazilian culture. Students will concentrate on their Portuguese speaking abilities along with vocabulary, grammar, listening, reading, and writing. Culture Yard currently offers weekday evening and weekend Portuguese group courses as well as private VIP classes.
Group study courses are based on the methods of the “Falar… Ler… Escrever… Português: Um Curso para Estrangeiros” Portuguese study book in addition to other materials to offer you diverse, interesting and interactive language classes. During the classes students are encouraged to speak Portuguese as much as possible.
Students are also encouraged to get involved with the Brazilian community here in Beijing.
