Top Portuguese Tutors in New York NY Area
Portuguese is the official language of seven countries, among them Portugal and Brazil. It has its roots in Latin and is listed as the most spoken language in South America. Although it originated in the medieval Kingdom of Galicia in the Iberian Peninsula, the language spread quickly during the 15th and 16th centuries, reaching Africa, Asia and the Americas. It became a lingua franca, used by traders, settlers and officials, and has since proven itself a fundamental linguistic link between communities large and small, spanning all the way from Lisbon to Goa, India. By studying with a Portuguese tutor in New York City, you’ll learn what UNESCO reports to be one of the fastest growing languages. You’ll also have the opportunity to broaden your literary horizons to some of the world’s most acclaimed novelists and poets—and read each of their texts in their original form. The Alchemist, written by Brazilian-born writer Paulo Coelho, is an international bestseller and has sold upward of 30 million copies. Dom Casmurro, penned by Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis, has won much critical praise and is declared a masterpiece of realist fiction. Beyond your academic ventures, travel opportunities abound with the Portugeuse language under your belt.

Alternatively, visit the cultural hub of Lisbon for museums and two official World Heritage Sites, and many other destinations where you can put your Portuguese to the test.
