How do I get high school credit?
If you have not met your high school graduation requirements for world language, we recommend you talk to your school counselor and let them know you would like to take a LanguageBird® course. Most college-prep high schools require 2 years of world language. Some high schools will have you fill out a concurrent enrollment form or ask you to send a transcript once your LanguageBird® course is complete. We are happy to work with your high school administrator and counselors!

COURSES FOR CREDIT
Accredited high school Portuguese courses with a private instructor at your pace and convenience.
Students build upon and increase listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in the target language. Students develop their Portuguese proficiency through extensive, spontaneous interaction with a native speaker in the language.
Students develop cultural awareness and become prepared to encounter real life situations outside of the classroom through discussions of cultural customs and behavior, videos, Internet research and by reading authentic materials written in the target language.
TUTORING & TEST PREP
Students receive private, one-to-one, live tutoring sessions geared toward reiterating concepts covered in their school classroom.
Tutors address any difficulties students may be having and help with homework and test preparation. Regularly scheduled lessons are recommended, rather than just for “emergency” situations. It’s best if the student consistently builds skills as well as a personal relationship with their tutor.
The lessons can also be geared toward helping students prepare for exams, including but not limited to: SAT Subject Tests, AP and fluency exams.
This is live, one-to-one communicative Portuguese lessons to cover elementary and intermediate grammatical structures of the Portuguese language, as well as vocabulary and cultural situations with a native speaker.
These lessons are designed to help students develop and mature foundational communicative skills to prepare them for everyday conversations in Portuguese. In addition, the student will master their fluency through the stylized nature of the course. Conversation lessons are open to students of all ages.

Our approach to education is personal, dynamic.
Innovative learning activities, unique assessments, and student directed projects engage students. Instructors take notes during each session to share with students and evaluate students over time based on personal progress. We don’t believe in timed exams. We do believe in giving students the opportunity to present what they have learned in a format and environment in which they are comfortable. Final projects are presented to the instructor during the final session of the course along with any required written components.
Why Choose an Online High School Language Program?
Enrolling your student in a LanguageBird course offers greater freedom and flexibility for their learning than what is typically found in a traditional brick-and-mortar high school environment. All of our faculty are experienced instructors in the field of education, not just native speakers. Our trained, experienced teachers love to work with high school students. Students meet with the same teacher building a relationship and skills. Students use our courses to make more room in their daily school schedule, to get ahead, make-up a class or study a language not offered at their school.
We provide students with the most personalized, one-to-one, learning experience.

The Benefits of Taking Online Portuguese Classes at a Young Age
It is always good to learn a new language at any stage in life. But it’s definitely more beneficial taking them at a young age. The earlier, the better. Portuguese is one of the swifter, most beautiful Romance languages and it’s spoken by 236 million people around the world. It has many similarities with Spanish, although it also has certain particularities not only in its vocabulary but also its alphabet, as some new characters are added to represent some sounds. Still, if your child already speaks any other romance language like French, Italian or Spanish, that will be a certain advantage at the moment of taking online Portuguese classes at LanguageBird.
There are some other advantages to taking our Portuguese classes. Not many people in the US learn it at college or university. That’s crazy considering not only that Portuguese is the seventh most spoken language on Earth but also, that the Portuguese speaking population in America can be counted by the hundreds of thousands; being among one of the biggest Latino groups living in the country. California, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Jersey are among the States with larger populations of Portuguese speakers. So learning this language can be an extreme benefit for your child’s business and academic career.
Quality Online Portuguese Tutoring with Native Speaker Teachers
At LanguageBird, we believe that learning a language must be an intercultural experience rather than just memorizing words and grammar rules. It must be something that enriches your child’s vision of the world and expands his or her mentality. That’s what generates genuine connections between people and leads to successful experiences, both professional and personal. For this reason, our online Portuguese tutoring stands out from many of the options out there: because our instructors are native speakers who not only can transmit the knowledge but also the cultural meanings of such beautiful, rich language.
Learning from people who not only speak Portuguese but also live or have lived in Portuguese speaking countries can give the double benefit of both language learning and cultural discovery. Aside from being extremely friendly and patient, LanguageBird instructors also strive to make lessons enjoyable for kids and most of the time they succeed in keeping their attention. Another important thing to highlight is that at LanguageBird, your child will also have the opportunity to learn Portuguese from Brazil and Portugal as well.
Why Should your Child Learn Portuguese Online at LanguageBird?
There are many more benefits, aside from language learning and cultural discovery when your kid learns Portuguese online at LanguageBird. We understand that children in middle and high school have already enough in their plates between classes, sports, extracurricular activities and so on. LanguageBird provides enough flexibility for them not only to successfully learn languages online but also to be successful at school. All of our classes offer flexible schedules for them to learn at their own time.
With us, your child not only has the online Portuguese lessons per se but also many other benefits. All of our students get access to LanguageBird’s Language Resource Library, with some of the best online language learning resources in the world; our Language Learning Blogs, with tips and tricks for learning languages as well as cultural articles written by our own instructors; the “Bird Bites”, which are 5-minute videos with our teachers analyzing the most common and most challenging concepts in their languages; and “The Nest”, a new series of 30-minute talk shows to explore the language and culture.
On top of that, LanguageBird provides certificates of completion or transcripts upon request, to send to high schools or colleges.

An Online Portuguese Tutor Lets Students Learn on their Time.
The life of high school students is actually a full-time job. Between attending classes, studying, participating in sports, partaking in other extra curricular activities like playing an instrument or participating on the debate team, and doing volunteer work (many do), there are also family obligations that play into life. This means a window of time to meet with an online Portuguese tutor can be minimal, and this is why high school students need an online Portuguese tutor who will teach them, on their time, whether that is at 6AM, 10PM or on weekends. When you invest in a high-quality online Portuguese tutor, you get the freedom of learning at your convenience.
