“Some people learn languages for fun. The rest of us are looking for a decent return on our investment. Since only about ten million Brazilians have reasonable English, with Portuguese under your belt you’ll stand out.” (Helen Joyce, Sao Paolo Bureau Chief, the Economist).
There is a burgeoning co-operation between the UK and Brazil in science and education and is a priority partner for international education. 10,000 Brazilian students are placed in UK universities through the Brazilian Government’s Science Without Borders programme.
Why learn Portuguese with us?
At Durham, we offer Portuguese as a credit bearing module and as an extra-curricular course, open to Durham University students, staff and members of the public. At Durham, we teach Portuguese from both a European and South American perspective. Whilst there are differences to a certain extent, both variations are mutually intelligible. To see the levels currently on offer, please visit our course listings.
