Welcome to Portuguese at Exeter

About us

Portuguese at Exeter offers the possibility of studying in an engaging research-active environment, examining not only the cultures and literatures of the Portuguese-speaking world, but also Portuguese linguistics: the established and emerging dialects of Portuguese, the current sociolinguistic situation in Portuguese-speaking African countries, Portuguese-speaking creoles, among other topics.

All staff in Portuguese are native speakers of Portuguese. You will be exposed to the two main standardized varieties of Portuguese: European and Brazilian Portuguese. We offer a friendly, supportive and challenging atmosphere that provides high quality teaching.

In addition to language modules, in which relevant social and cultural topics of Portuguese-speaking countries will be discussed, you will be able to discover the fascinating history of Portuguese-speaking countries and study Portuguese culture, linguistics, literature, and gender relations.
