Why Study Portuguese in Dallas
For Work and travel: According to DallasNews, North Texas is one of the nation's largest metro areas for small business job creation, and Dallas is a big part of that. And, as a major economic center in Texas and the United States, the city offers lots of job opportunities to those who speak a language other than English. For example, companies like Hilton, HansaWorld, HireTalent, and American Airlines are looking for fluent Portuguese speakers for positions such as guest engagement specialist, product manager for the Portuguese market or customer service representative. And if you are not looking for a new job but would like to travel instead, you will be happy to know there are dozens of direct flights to Portugal and Brazil every day via American Airlines or Air Canada. In a little over 10 hours, you can be in the amazing cities of Lisbon or Rio de Janeiro, drinking caipirinhas and speaking to the locals with the skills you acquire with us at Language Trainers!
For Culture: Dallas celebrates its Portuguese heritage by honoring its cuisine. There are many themed restaurants around Dallas that offer delicious Portuguese and Brazilian food. One of them is Port of Peri Peri on Preston Road. They offer a great variety of healthy food, particularly grilled dishes. Order cataplana, peixinhos da horta or cozido a portuguesa using the speaking skills and pronunciation you learn in your lessons! And if you would like a taste of Brazilian food instead, why don’t you go to Poblanos Piri Piri to have some feijoada, brigadeiro or farofa? Try these delicious dishes and feel like a Portuguese-speaking native without ever leaving Dallas! And if you like samba, you can learn how to dance at the United Dance Academy on Merit Street. Do exercise, have fun, and learn more about the fascinating Brazilian culture!
For Social: Dallas is a city where you can meet a lot of people who also love Brazilian and Portuguese culture as much as you. For example, you can join the Dallas Portuguese Language Meetup, a group open to anyone who would like to have a conversation in Portuguese. Whether you are a native speaker or a complete beginner, you are welcome to join the meetings every Saturday. Another very popular group is InterNations Place for Brazilians in Dallas, a group where people passionate about Brazil can practice their Portuguese and exchange information about local events, clubs, restaurants, etc. to enjoy Brazilian cultural experiences! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to further practice what you learn in your language course in a relaxed and friendly environment!
