Brazilian Portuguese classes online
Mother Tongues offers Brazilian Portuguese lessons for native speakers. This group includes children who learned the language in Brazil and children who learned it in Ireland or elsewhere. In the Brazilian Portuguese course, children will learn through playful moments! We’ll listen to great stories about Saci-perere, Sitio do Pica Pau Amarelo and Turma da Monica! We’ll have good fun singing along with A galinha pintadinha and Palavra cantada. We’ll learn about how Brazil is a gigantic country with lots of different people, different cultures and different and yummy food! We’ll learn everything about the boto cor de rosa, as capivaras, the onça pintada and the arara azul! We’ll play games, we’ll draw beatiful pictures, we’ll do art and crafts and we’ll produce texts, comics, poems and much more! We believe that family participation is key to home language development, so there will be lots of fun projects to do with mamãe and papai. The course should increase the child’s vocabulary and expand their knowledge on the Brazilian culture.
