The New School Continuing Education

Portuguese (Brazilian)

For centuries, Portuguese culture has been a major influence throughout the world. Portuguese is the language of millions of people in Brazil and parts of Africa and East Asia (East Timor and Macao) in addition to its home country of Portugal.

The New School offers courses in Brazilian Portuguese in the fall, spring, and summer. If you would like to study this language but have limited time during the week, stop by The New School for a weekend immersion. Our On the Go courses in Portuguese are offered at levels 1 and 2, helping you make rapid progress in just a weekend.

Visit the registration website for a list of current course offerings in Brazilian Portuguese and other languages. If you are unsure about your level, take a self-placement exam to determine where you should start. To obtain a Brazilian Portuguese placement exam, contact the Department of Foreign Languages at
