Portuguese in Perth
Portuguese is the second-most spoken native Romance language in the world after Spanish according to Babbel in 2017, with more than 250 million native and non-native speakers worldwide. Many live in Australia and, today, the Portuguese-speaking communities in the country are prominent, with over 100,000 people. This ethnic group is composed mostly of Brazilians, although there are many East Timorese and Portuguese people as well. Furthermore, almost 2,000 of this vast population live in Perth, according to the 2011 census. So, if you would like to connect with this community on a whole new level and understand better their influence on the city, you should start studying Portuguese in Perth with Language Trainers.

Why Study Portuguese in Perth
For Work: Learning Portuguese in Perth will help you broaden your professional horizons in the city and beyond. Today, Brazil is the largest Australian Trade Partner in Latin America and is only getting larger, so many local companies are expanding their markets overseas to take advantage. This means that businesses like Osisoft or Sprytech are always looking for bilingual speakers to communicate with their foreign-language partners and clients. And if you are looking to connect with Portuguese-speaking entrepreneurs, you should contact the Australia-Brazil Chamber of Commerce, which provides assistance to businesses and individuals with the objective to promote trade and investment between the two countries. Even though the main offices of the Chamber are in Sydney, it often organises events in Perth to give its members across the country opportunities to network, too.
For Culture: Work aside, if you are more interested in experiencing foreign cultures, you will be happy to know that Perth celebrates both Portuguese and Brazilian heritage. For example, you can join the Portuguese Social Club Perth, an institution established in 2007 with the aim of providing instances for Portuguese speakers to socialise and celebrate their traditions and culture. Every month, this particular group holds a Fado Sunday event, where you can sample delicious Portuguese food while listening to beautiful music. Sing along to the tunes with the pronunciation you learn with us at Language Trainers! And if you are more into parties, you should not miss the annual Perth Brazilian Carnival, an all-day celebration divided into three amazing parties. Take part in this fantastic event in front of the Bell Tower and enjoy free entertainment, including dance and drumming, free workshops and delicious food to purchase. You will feel as if you were in Rio without the need to travel to Brazil.
For Social: And if you are looking to meet like-minded people around Perth while putting your Portuguese skills to use, you will find many instances for doing so in the city. For example, you can participate in the meetings organised by the InterNations space for the Portuguese in Perth. Even though it was originally meant for expats to get together and share their relocation stories, the group now welcomes anyone with an interest in their language and culture. They accept people of all ages and levels of proficiency, so you can join them even if you are just starting your Portuguese lessons. And if all that conversation leaves you hungry, why not take your new friends to taste some excellent Portuguese food at one the many themed restaurants in Perth? A great option is Nando’s on Williams Street, where you can sample a delicious cozido a portuguesa or some great francesinhas. And if you are more into Brazilian food, you can go to Lapa Brazilian BBQ on High Street, where they serve the best feijoada you can taste in Perth. Order in Portuguese and impress your friends and the personnel with your language skills!
