    FAQ

    Well, 2 reasons. First, because it aludes to the “journey” the learner will take from knowing, perhaps, next to nothing of the language to fluency by the end of it. And second, it’s the name of the movie we shot that serves as the backbone for the program.

    In this program you will follow our 2 main characters on their travels around Portugal (mainland and islands) as they try to unravel a family mystery. 

    As you do, we will use each scene to teach you something new about the Portuguese language, either grammar, pronunciation or something else.

    We do this initially by means of over 80 induction video lessons. This is then supplemented with extra exposure through video sketches and quizzes tailored to cover specific points.

    We then consolidate the whole thing by giving you lesson-specific assignments.

    This is just scratching the surface of what the program has to offer. There is a lot more side material that covers things like idiomatic expressions or the portuguese culture for example.

    On top of all that, you have access to myself and Márlon in case you get stuck somewhere along the “road”.

    You can start the program with 0 knowledge of the language, as we will cover all the basics. However, from the get go, we offer you video explanations for our sketches not only in English but in Portuguese. As a result, even intermediate students benefit from starting at the top. Of course you can spend as much time on each section as you wish.

    In technical terms, we cover material up to, what textbooks normally associate with C1 and C2 levels. Things like conjunctive tenses or other more complex grammar aspects of the language. Of course, we are constantly adding more material.

    I am happy to answer questions students have about the language. Perhaps a particular thing they are struggling to understand. However, the program does not include one-on-one lessons with me. It is mainly a “self-taking” program.

    That really does depends on how much you can dedicate to it. Learning a language up to fluency point will likely take many months, even if you can dedicate a lot of time to it.

    There is absolutely no limit to the amount of time you can spend on the site. And you can certainly keep yourself very busy with the program on a daily basis. After each “chapter”, which contains multiple lessons, you generally have a 3 day gap until the next chapter is unlocked. This is done on purpose so as to give you time to consolidate the points learned. During this period, we give you homework and also unlock side content to keep you busy and motivated.

    Sim! All our subscriptions come with a 1 week free trial. Simply cancel before the end of the week, and you won’t be charged at all.

    We accept most card payments and use stripe as our card payment handler. They have been around for a long time and are used by companies such as Uber, Amazon, Lyft, Spotify, National Geographic, Booking.com, Deliveroo, etc.

    Our terms and conditions page will answer any questions you might have, but, in short, you may cancel at any point and there are no extra fees or contracts associated with your subscription. Think of it like your Netflix membership.

    What our members are saying...

    This is the best language learning platform in the world, no questions asked. The chapter structure is extremely effective for learning. Full and total enjoyment and engagement.

    Love how comprehensive it is, your rapport, your neuropsych/learning tips, your creativity, teaching idioms (alfacinhas – who knew?), and grounding your teaching in (forget the term for it) – learning/pronouncing sentences backwards. I really appreciate the creativity in designing all the elements of your program.

    I like that you speak at "normal" speed. So this has helped when I am engaging in conversation. I have been able to chat with people in markets/shops/cafés etc. I write texts in Portuguese more easily (of course with mistakes, but they are understandable) and read short stories with less use of the dictionary. I have been complemented a lot on my pronunciation – which is thanks to the pronunciation tips and practice. I'm really enjoying the course and recommend it to others. It's really fun.

    I'm completely in love with this course! I was looking for a course that is engaging and fun. I've been learning PT for one year now. Just the first video (the benfica pillow) is amazing! Finally REAL LIFE topics in a fun, engaging way. I love the explanations which allow me to learn more about the culture as well. I LOVE how much passion, care, and love you have put (are putting) into this course. I can truly feel it and it makes me love this even more. Learning PT truly is a journey and I am so so so happy to have found you so you can take me by the hand. I have the goal to be somewhat fluent by the end of this year. And with this course I feel it's reachable. This is a gem! Thank you so so so much! I have just found the perfect Portuguese language course with you.

    I’m excited to continue and this is definitely the best programme I’ve tried so far it feels like conversation rather than a class. The video scenarios are very well done it’s great that the dialogue is natural. I also like the way the two of you interact.

    Before I found Portuguese with Carla I was taking Portuguese grammar at night and I struggled as an English speaker. Once I started going through The Journey, a lot of items covered in grammar class, was beginning to make sense. Besides, I was learning to speak grammatically but surrounded by locals who don’t speak grammatically in day to day conversation everything sounded like a new word 🤷🏿‍♂️ but you and Marlon are helping me understand more as I go through my Journey.
