Hi, I'm Charlles Nunes.

I’m the author of One Minute Portuguese, the creator of the Portuguese Academy, and a teacher who has been 'in the field' for 27 years.

Since 2006, I've been running this website to help people like YOU to learn Portuguese online. If you are in a hurry, I know how you feel.

How do I know that? I've been there too...

When I was 22, I needed to learn English - as part of my work as a voluntary. (I spoke only Portuguese.)

I got a few resources and started my journey. After a 3-month period of trial and error, I could finally speak English at a basic level. (I tell this story in my first book.)

As time went by, I fell in love with language learning, and I chose to become a teacher. This website was born out of my wish to express my gratitude for those who helped along the way.

Since 2006, we are on a mission to help one student at a time to learn Portuguese.

We also run a language school in Angra dos Reis, Brazil. Our students are willing to practice their English with Portuguese learners online.

Thousands of people - from over 150 countries - have been using our FREE resources online.

They are men and women who love Brazil or have Brazilian friends and relatives.
