Oi, tudo bem?

The No. One frustration I hear from language learners is that they always give up quickly because they don’t see fast enough results. With my methodology, this is a thing of the past! After only one lesson with me, you will see instant results!

My name is Irineu. I am The Portuguese Teacher and have developed a methodology of learning Portuguese which is unique. I am the author of several Portuguese Language and Conversation books. I currently teach Portuguese at the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow. I also teach privately, and have taught people across the world to speak both Brazilian and European Portuguese. I will ensure that you are able to speak Portuguese fluently in a very short period of time.


I offer flexible learning solutions to suit all circumstances and budgets:

  • Face 2 Face Private Tuition in your own home
  • Face 2 Face Private Online Tuition via Skype
  • Portuguese Immersion Courses – at home or abroad!
  • Special courses for Spanish speakers who wish to learn Portuguese
  • Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Business levels

So whether you are learning for the first time, or you are an advanced speaker, I will ensure you have the knowledge to speak like a native in no time at all.

Want a Skype lesson? Here’s how it works…

I’ve been successfully teaching Portuguese over Skype for 5 years. Some people prefer Skype because they travel a lot, or simply don’t live in my locality. Currently I teach students in London, Dubai, USA and Spain. I also teach students in Glasgow and Aberdeen via Skype, though they are local, because they prefer to learn from the comfort of their own home! Here’s how it works…

Skype ClassroomUsing Skype, the FREE online video conferencing technology, I teach you face to face, using my whiteboard and all the tools any teacher would normally utilise in a classroom.

Additionally, I share my PC screen with you and have a wealth of multi-media resources to keep your lessons interesting and engaging. Taking Portuguese lessons on Skype allows you to learn from your home, office or anywhere you have an internet connection.

Perfect for those with busy schedules!

Learning Portuguese has never been so convenient!
