Portuguese in Santa Barbara
Portuguese. It’s the world’s sixth most-spoken language with an estimated 220 million native speakers worldwide. After English, Portuguese ranks as one of Europe’s fastest-spreading languages. And with Brazil’s growing influence in the international market, Portuguese is thriving all around the globe.
Originally a small town made up of several adobes and families of Spanish explorers, Santa Barbara was a mission city that quickly grew into a global powerhouse. The second half of the 20th century saw the appearance of offshore oil drilling which helped Santa Barbara expand rapidly. A few decades later, the service industry has begun to boom in the area making the need for workers with foreign language a must for employers. Workers looking to capitalize on this trend can begin learning a new language today with a qualified, native speaking teacher at Language Trainers. All lessons and courses are set to the student’s pace to optimize learning. Our free online language tests allow you to test your foreign language abilities and give you the opportunity to get started today by contacting us about a custom-made plan.
