A bit about us
The Portuguese Language Centre was founded in 2011 by the Portuguese language teacher Juliana Menezes to promote and spread the language in Ireland.
Every year, hundreds of students from all over the globe come to learn Portuguese with us for various reasons and purposes. For over six years we have been providing high quality classes for people who have partners from Brazil, Portugal, Angola or Mozambique and for others who come to study in order to be able to communicate well in Portuguese either to go on a trip or work in one of the countries where Portuguese is spoken.
We offer different types of classes, from complete beginners to advanced, from afternoon to evening in a very convenient location in the city centre, only minutes from O'Connell Street and a few steps from major transport links.
Our group classes hold a maximum of 10 students allowing more interactive lessons and quicker improvement. We also offer individual tuition, in company classes, cultural workshops, events, movies in Portuguese and conversation classes. Meet the team here.
The centre has a small library with Books, magazines, CDs and movies in Portuguese to be borrowed.
Our centre is registered with the local authorities in Ireland and friends of the school include the Embassy of Brazil in Dublin and various educational companies who contributed books, magazines, CDs and DVDs.
