The Online Portuguese platform is a platform available on the portal of the High Commission for Migrations. This platform for learning European Portuguese for speakers of other languages aims to assist all those who, living in Portugal as emigrants, as tourists, or even as learners of Portuguese for personal enrichment, wish to learn the Portuguese language autonomously, free of charge and at their own pace. It also aims to give the learner the linguistic and cultural tools necessary to become an independent speaker of the language. Therefore, 24 modules are available covering levels A1, A2, B1 and B2. In these modules, learners have at their disposal exercises in the following areas: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, vocabulary and grammar.
At the end of each of the 6 modules (following the order indicated) there is an exam which will assess the knowledge obtained so far. In level A (1 and 2), the platform uses images and the spoken and written word to associate the spoken word with the written word and its meaning. The platform also allows the consultation of dictionaries and glossaries of grammatical terms to facilitate questions related to the functioning of the language. For reading and speaking comprehension, audio, video and written texts are also presented on the themes of each module. These themes cover topics such as personal identification and characterisation, food, festivities and free time in level A. At level B, some of the topics approached are: professional and personal life, activities and citizenship, rights and freedoms, among others. It also assigns each user a tutor to monitor and guide the learner's learning and progress.
