Speaking Brazilian Academy
Learn Brazilian Portuguese online without giving up personal contact with a real teacher.
The Speaking Brazilian Academy is the best place to practice Portuguese regularly.
Become more fluent, improve and maintain your Portuguese in an informal and fun setting.
The Speaking Brazilian Academy is not a regular course with a beginning, middle, and end. It's a membership program that offers you a place to practice, improve, and maintain your Portuguese continuously in an informal and fun setting.
The objective of the Academy is to give you a space to speak Portuguese regularly. The combination of the lessons, live classes, and support of our community will help you improve your Portuguese naturally by being in contact with the language in several different ways.
In addition to the extensive course material available on the website, you'll also have a live conversation class once a week via Zoom with a Brazilian teacher and a small group of students.
This course is recommended for intermediate students who still have a lot to improve and advanced learners who want a place to maintain their Portuguese.

What My Students Say
Meet the Team
Virginia Langhammer - Founder and Director
Teaching Portuguese as a second language has become my passion since I moved to NYC in 2013.
I created this online school in 2018, and since then I’ve been teaching students from all over the world, helping them with their personal and professional goals.
I've been always passionate about languages. I speak Portuguese, English, French, and Spanish. My knowledge of foreign language learning gives me the best tools to help my students in their learning journey.
Now, I’m happy to introduce you to my team. In addition to years of experience as Portuguese teachers, they have also been trained by me to be in tune with Speaking Brazilian School style and standards.
I'm sure you'll learn a lot from them!
