European Portuguese Adult Language Class
All our classes are virtual using Zoom
Portuguese is an elegant and beautiful language, and it is one of the top 10 most spoken languages in the world, with over 260 million speakers world-wide.
Do you or anyone you know want to learn or improve speaking, reading, and writing European Portuguese? It's difficult to find European Portuguese classes in the Bay Area that suit the schedules of working professionals, families, and those with a general interest in learning the language.

" This class was really great and allowed me to connect to my Portuguese heritage. The teacher was very helpful and created a fun learning environment. I will definitely continue my Portuguese language journey at IDESST.
— K. ANDERS
"We tried an “immersion” class in the city where the instructor only spoke Portuguese and we floundered the entire time. So glad we found the Zoom class offered by IDESST. We loved our instructor Margarida who made learning fun and practical. After 15 weeks I had already learned a ton but was left wanting more! Looking forward to the fall session.
— L. GEOFFROY
" As many others have done, I had to cancel my summer trip to Portugal. Margarida’s ZOOM class enabled me to have a "Portuguese Experience” and learn some language skills that will help when travel opens. It’s a great time to learn a language and Margarida does an excellent job teaching and making it a fun experience. It’s also very hard to find a European Portuguese teacher, so no matter where you live you can participate. Can’t wait for Fall semester!
— S. SIMAS
" I have yet to encounter a classroom environment in which I can learn a foreign language as quickly and as excitedly as I do in the classes at IDESST.
— A. SCHUT
"The class is connecting me to my childhood, where Portuguese was spoken and how different generations of our family were able to gather and communicate.
