Description

Area of Interest: Languages


Feel at home anywhere with languages.

Olá! (Hello!)

There are 200 million Brazilian Portuguese speakers today. Whether you’re interested in exploring beyond the Copa Cabana with locals other than the Girl from Ipanema, or connecting more deeply with your Brazilian friends right here in Sydney, Brazilian Portuguese is one of the most vibrant, sensual and musical languages to learn today.

We invite you to spend a few hours every week in Brazil with us, to learn the language of Neymar Jr, Paolo Coelho, and Giselle Bünchen.

UNSW Global courses are designed to create opportunities for real-life communication practice and connect you with other people who share your interests.

Did you know:

- Brazilians refer to the way they play football as ‘Joga bonito’ – the beautiful game.

- Brazilian Portuguese accents have a lifting and strong cadence to foreign ears, making it easier to learn and understand than European Portuguese.

This course runs from Monday to Thursday from 6:15pm-8:45pm for 2 weeks.
