About Portuguese

Portuguese is a Romance language developed from Galician-Portuguese that was spoken in the medieval Kingdom of Galicia. It is an official language of the European Union, the Organisation of American States, the African Union, and Lusophone countries. With around 240 million speakers, Portuguese is the sixth-most spoken language in the world. Portuguese is the official language of Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Mozambique. According to estimates by UNESCO, Portuguese and Spanish are the fastest-growing European languages after English and the language has the highest potential for growth as an international language in southern Africa and South America.

About Basildon

Basildon, with its close proximity to London, is a commuter hot-spot. It is located far enough away from central London that property prices are not drastically inflated, yet close enough that the trip into London can be made in well under an hour.

This commuter-friendliness means that Basildon is an important part of big-city business in the United Kingdom. But, it is not just its proximity to London that makes Basildon an important town for business. The town itself is committed to increasing the potential of its local businesses through ongoing marketing.

2010 saw Basildon begin a marketing push focussed on improving the town’s business infrastructure. One of the first notable steps in this push was the addition of a Hollywood-style sign which adorns one of Basildon’s green hills.

Standing 5 feet tall, the letters recall the glamour of Los Angeles’ original icon, which gives that Californian city an undeniable draw. Through the homage Basildon pays to that landmark through its own sign, this UK town is asserting itself in a constant effort to increase its business dealings independent of neighbouring London.

Whether you intend to establish yourself within this rising business town or make the daily commute to the commercial hub that is London, you need a business English course that will ensure you are able to operate effectively at this level.

Assess Your Portuguese Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Portuguese language trainer in Basildon can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Portuguese in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
