with the Portuguese Lab!

Learn Portuguese (from Portugal) with authentic and captivating content.




My name is Susana, and I’m the creator of the Portuguese Lab.

Here you learn Portuguese by enjoying yourself! This means you acquire the language by reading and listening to authentic content and taking part in simulated dialogues that keep you engaged. You get used to the grammar structures and the meaning of new words by their use in different contexts.

And because you are actually interested in the story, the dialogue or any other type of compelling content you’re working with, you have an emotional response that makes it easier for your brain to save the experience and consolidate the memory of what you were exposed to.

With time, Portuguese becomes more and more familiar, and eventually, your own.

Do you want to pass for a local in Portugal? You’re in the right place. :)
