    Brazilian Portuguese - All Levels - Trips, Life and Culture
    Portuguese is not just my native language: is my work tool as well. Despite needing the language to live as any other citizen in the world, I graduated in Advertisement and spent the lasts 8 years as a creator and editor of digital content, so I kept going over and over deep into the rules of my own idiom. Living abroad for the second time, I know every person has a unique reason and motivation to learn other language and that's my mission in here: help you to learn Brazilian Portuguese according to your goals.

    Learn Portuguese in 10 weeks - private or group lessons -- professional with teaching degree - intensive course of 15 hours
    Oi Tudo bem? My name is Marcelo and I am from São Paulo. I live in The Hague and I teach Portuguese in The Hague, Rotterdam-Centre and Amsterdam. I have a small group for Portuguese (A-1), that will start February 13th in Rotterdam-Centre (Blaak) The rate is much lower than the mentioned private lesson rate. The lessons are from 19.30 until 21.00 hours. It is a very small group (5 students) so it will feel like private lessons. Let me know if you want to join... As an experienced teacher of Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese Business Culture Training, working for two well known language institutes and with more than 18 years of teaching experience based on a Masters Degree of Literature, I want to expand my activities, because of an increased demand for affordable lessons Portuguese. Group and private lessons consist of 10 lessons of 1.5 intensive hours (15 hours) and an extra (!) lesson live in a wonderful new Brazilian Restaurant. new : I Will bring you in direct contact with other enthousiastic students of mine who had other teacher before me and are very happy with my effective style of teaching and offered to me to share this with others. So these are real referrals !! Private lessons can also be reserved per lesson. Only groups have a fixed schedule. My goal is to teach you the basics (European level A-1, A-2) or if you are advanced (B-1 and B-2) in a short period. with Dutch or English as a channel for explanation of the grammar. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. ’tarefas de casa’ (homework) will take you about 3 to 4 hours per week. The private and group lessons consist of a structured explanation of grammar and a part of the lesson where the student puts this immediately into practice with fluency practice (short sentences). I have an enormous passion for teaching, and after 19 years it still feels like brand new (even better with all the experience now..) so students can feel this passion. Give it a try, you will learn Portuguese much faster than you expected. Abraços (kind regards) Marcelo.
