Portuguese course

For Portugal, Brazil and Africa

Portuguese is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Whether you do business in Brazil or Africa or regularly travel to Portugal for professional or private reasons, speaking Portuguese will help you connect with others.

At Regina Coeli, you learn to communicate in Portuguese right off the bat, and you focus on either European or Brazilian Portuguese.

You, too, can now take a relaxed and safe language course at Regina Coeli. Read more about it in our COVID protocol.

Why Regina Coeli?

  • You learn Portuguese from native speakers from Brazil or Portugal
  • You take your own, unique language course and learn exactly what you need to
  • You learn quickly, intuitively and enjoyably with a blend of private lessons, activities and online learning

Learn proper Portuguese in a short time

You'll grasp the basics of Portuguese after just a few days when you take an intensive Portuguese language course at Regina Coeli. Or perhaps you already speak Portuguese and would like to improve your speaking skills over several intensive days. That’s also possible with us!

Either way, you design your learning programme together with one of our trainers. You determine your goals, explain what you need the language for and how you’d like your training programme to go. The trainer can then estimate how many intensive teaching days you’ll need. Your training will be focused on either European Portuguese or Brazilian Portuguese.


A student about her Portuguese course

'We’ve been spending time talking about the country and the economy, which helps me feel well-prepared for my work in Brazil. In addition, all the students here get on so well. Everyone is in the same boat and that makes it so easy to talk to one another.’

A peaceful and inspiring place to learn

You follow your personal Portuguese training programme at our language institute in Vught. Here, you find the peaceful surroundings you need to study, and you’re taught by a team of language trainers. Each training day follows the same rhythm, which means you come into a flow and learn even faster.

Language Institute Regina Coeli was originally conceived of by an international order of nuns who gave language lessons to clergy and business people. Nowadays, our Portuguese lessons are taught by native speakers.

What has remained a constant over all these years is our commitment to teaching people foreign languages. We believe that people understand and appreciate one another more when they speak the same language. Personal and organisational effectiveness greatly improve when language learning is invested in.

In accordance with COVID-19 measures, we've set up our institute so you can maintain a 1.5-metre distance from other students and your trainers. We’ve also taken additional hygiene measures. That way, you have peace of mind when taking your course at our language institute.

Frequently asked questions about Portuguese language training

I’m a beginner. Would a Portuguese course at Regina Coeli be right for me?
Yes, we can have you speaking the language in no time. In fact, you’ll notice that you start speaking Portuguese in the very first lesson. It's precisely when you’re a beginner that you learn the fastest.

When can I come to Regina Coeli?
As a result of the COVID measures, we are temporarily unable to accommodate as many students as we normally can in Vught. As a result, we have to work with a waiting list. We recommend booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

What does a Portuguese course cost?
After you've had your intake interview, you'll receive a personal quote from us. You can find the per-day prices for language training on our rates page.

Do I have to spend the night at Regina Coeli?
We cordially invite you to spend the night in our guest accommodation, but you don’t have to, of course. Staying at Regina Coeli does, however, improve your focus while learning the language.
