Portuguese in Denver

With more than 260 million total speakers, Portuguese is the sixth most natively spoken language in the world and is the language of fado, samba and capoeira. This amazing language can also be an asset if you are planning to work for a company that values bilingual speakers, or if you would like to connect with the more than 915 thousand Portuguese-speaking locals in Denver. Getting started with Language Trainers is really simple, and we can start designing a Portuguese course tailored to your needs and skills right away.

 

Why Study Portuguese in Denver

For Work and Studies: Studying Portuguese will look great on your CV, especially if you are planning to apply for a job at one of the several companies such as FareHarbor, SnowFlake or ServiceSource that look for bilingual speakers in Denver. Some positions suitable for speakers of Portuguese are customer support analyst, business development agent and call center representative. In addition to applying for these positions, you can also contact the US-Brazil Connect, located on Williams Street. Since 2016, this institution has strived to provide locals with access to learning and internship opportunities. All their programs were designed in close collaboration with the Brazilian Confederation of Industry, so if you are not actively looking for a job but would like to pursue higher education in Portuguese instead, this organization offers exchange programs in Brazil. After taking some classes with Language Trainers, why not enroll in one of those programs to be part of a remarkable cross-cultural education experience?

For Social and Food: If you would also like to try and polish your social skills using Portuguese, you may want to join the Choro das 3’s annual workshop where you can learn how to sing and meet people with similar interests in music. Also, you can join the Bossa Nova Brazilian MeetUp Group in Denver. It has 35 members, and they usually meet at the owner’s house to sing traditional Brazilian songs such as  Corcovado, Girl from Ipanema or Desafinado. Another way of socializing is by sharing a tasty Brazilian feijoada with friends, and you can do this at Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse on Wynkoop St. This restaurant will give you a full Brazilian experience while having delicious steak, pork, chicken or lamb. Little Brazil on 26th Avenue is another place you should definitely try. The owners try to bring a little bit of Brazil to all food lovers living in Denver, with authentic and delicious dishes from their country. Their "pao de queijo" is famous!  If you would like to try Portuguese wine, you can do so at Flights Wine Cafe on Grandview Avenue. This is a place that features over 100 wines and great beers from all over the world. 

For Culture: You can get to know more about Brazilian and Portuguese culture by understanding their arts. If you are interested in dancing Samba, for example, you can go to Bella Diva Dance, a dance academy on Mississippi Ave that offers affordable Samba classes to the women of Denver. People who prefer Capoeira can learn this Brazilian physical discipline at Luanda Denver, a studio located in Pecos St. This organization promotes health and wellness, and has options for children, teens and adults. Finally, you may want to attend the Colorado Brazil Fest to get a glimpse of this fascinating culture. This is the largest festival of its kind in Colorado, with 1500-2000 participants each year. This annual event has been dedicated to promoting the rich heritage of Brazilian music and dance since its inception in 2009. Every year, the event changes its venue. It is sometimes located in Boulder, while some other years it is based in Denver.
