Learn Portuguese With UIC

Press release September 30, 2012 Education

The importance of language is more widely acknowledged than ever, with more and more people choosing to learn a second tongue for either work or pleasure.

If you are considering taking up a language, you may want to steer away from the obvious French or German and pick something a little more obscure. UIC offers classes in Portuguese for a wide range of ages and abilities, with reasonable prices and small class sizes to ensure maximum learning.

There are numerous benefits to having Portuguese as a second language. With over 240 million native speakers, it is the 7th most spoken language in the world. It is also the language of many countries climbing the economic ladder, such as Brazil. With the 2016 Olympics being held in Rio, Portuguese could be a brilliant career investment for those looking to work internationally in a variety of sectors. Language skills make a great improvement to your CV, demonstrating a curiosity, dedication and cultural intelligence. Portuguese also has similarities with other languages, including Spanish and Italian, giving you a head start should you wish to expend your knowledge even further. 

There are few better ways to learn than immersing yourself in a language. At UIC (, qualified staffs use the most up to date technology and text books, and encourage active conversation in small, focused groups. You will improve your fluency and grammar skills, and also be set weekly homework to put your skills into practice. There are a range of courses on offer, from beginners to advanced, and even a lunch time course for busy workers!
