Grammar in Conversation Workshop
- Intermediate Level Course -
Learn Brazilian Portuguese online without giving up personal contact with a real teacher.
The Grammar in Conversation Workshop will give you a solid foundation in Brazilian Portuguese grammar (intermediate level) and teach you how to apply it in everyday conversations.
The Grammar in Conversation Workshop offers easy-to-follow lessons and a perfect balance between grammar and conversation practice that will help you feel more comfortable speaking Portuguese.
In addition to the course material available on the website, you'll also have a live class once a week via Zoom with a Brazilian teacher and a small group of students.
This course is suitable for intermediate-level students who have already studied all the basic content, but still need to learn or review more advanced grammar and increase their level of conversational skills.
If you're looking for a beginners' class, take a look at The Essential Course for Beginners.
If you're looking for an upper beginners' class, take a look at Pre-Intermediate Workshop.
If you are not interested in learning or reviewing grammar and just wish to practice conversation, take a look at my course for intermediate and advanced students: Speaking Brazilian Academy.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
I feel that of all the online programs I have researched, speaking Brazilian School is by far the most professional and content dense. It is almost at the level of taking a college course! I love how it includes speaking, hearing, reading and writing. The weekly Utube and Q&As added an added dimension of reinforcement to the learning experience too. In addition, the warmth and friendliness that I am so accustomed to with Brasilian's flows through the classes and the email communication from you.

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!
