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.

Portuguese at Exeter is expanding. In 2013 two new leading researchers in Portuguese joined our team, widening the range of Portuguese teaching on offer within the Department of Modern Languages. 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.
