The Portuguese Conversation Hour is free and open to all members of the community interested in improving their Portuguese conversation ability. There is no registration and no cost. Come and practice or learn Portuguese while having fun and meeting new friends. No prior knowledge required just an interest for languages and the taste for an enjoyable challenge! 

Any and all levels are welcome to this weekly Portuguese Conversation Table, especially those wishing to practice their Portuguese with a wider group of people. Instructors will be present to guide the conversation and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to engage in conversation. Instructors will also attempt to keep the conversation within the limits of what students have learned in class, so they may practice with ease and confidence. It is also a great opportunity to clarify any questions students may have about the Portuguese language!
