    Portuguese for English Speakers - Brave the lusophone world!
    With 270M+ speakers around the world, Portuguese is the last of the Romance Languages (the last "child" of Latin) and the third most spoken in the West, just behind Spanish and English. The laguage is spoken mainly in Portugal (its homeland) and Brazil (most native speakers); knowing how to speak Portuguese will open ways into the best of Lusitan and Brazilian cultures, with a lot of legends and world history to discover! Also, Portuguese is, perhaps, the most sentimental language in the world: you will have at your disposal a myriad of words to express yourself fully and deeply, in a way you never realised it was possible. Ready to discover a whole new world?!

    I am a native Portuguese speaker currently living in the Netherlands (Rotterdam). As a freelance translator and linguistic specialist, I am used to working with the Portuguese language daily, so I can help you learn Portuguese in many different ways: - Looking for someone to just talk for some time every day or week to train your accent? - Looking for someone to correct your Portuguese grammar exercises or texts? - Looking for someone to explain a difficult grammar detail or offer more vocabulary? We can find a flexible solution for you, both in terms of what you are looking for, but also in how to achieve it :)

    Marcelo
    Learn Portuguese in 10 weeks - private or group lessons -- professional with teaching degree - private and group lessons - online or hybrid
    Oi Tudo bem? Mijn naam is Marcelo en ik kom uit São Paulo. Ik geef Portugees en Braziliaans Portugees in Den Haag, Rotterdam Centrum en in Amsterdam. Gelukkig kan ik mijn universitaire studies en 20 jaar praktische leservaring zodanig combineren dat de lessen goed onderbouwd en stimulerend zijn. Ik heb in Brazilië en Portugal gewoond en gestudeerd, dus ben een ‘native speaker, met veel kennis van de bijbehorende cultuur. Door speling of voorziening van het lot, ben ik tweetalig. Jarenlang heb ik ook business trainingen gegeven aan twee zeer bekende taalscholen, dus ik weet hoe ik in korte tijd veel kennis kan overdragen. Dat voel je als cursist al na een paar lessen. Zakelijk Portugees of met spoed leren (binnen 10 werkdagen) is ook mogelijk. Ik heb een KvK en BTW nummer. Ik heb veel ervaring met geven van lessen per Skype of Whereby (Whereby is professioneler en Europees), al voor de crisis omdat ik ook cursisten in andere landen les geef. Bij virtuele lessen ontvangt u een transcript van de les per email, na afloop van de les. Lessen bij mij thuis (Molenlaan kwartier Rotterdam) zijn ook mogelijk met 1,8 meter afstand en goede circulatie. Gratis parkeren. Mijn lessen zijn zeer gestructureerd en stap voor stap. Daarnaast leg ik altijd het 'waarom' uit van een grammaticaal onderwerp, dat een link creëert die ook beter werkt voor het geheugen en de les interessanter maakt. Omdat ik zo resultaatgericht ben, probeer ik trainees met een zachte hand de trap naar de volle spreekvaardigheid op te helpen en mijn taak is om de lessen zo leerzaam en aantrekkelijk mogelijk te maken. Abraços (vriendelijke groeten) Marcelo.

    Portuguese lessons for everyone (beginners, intermediate and advanced) at home or online
    Would you like to learn a new skill? You've come to the right place. I am Portuguese and I am fluent in this fantastic language. During my Portuguese lessons you will not only learn the language, but I will also enrich your knowledge about Portuguese culture: Portuguese customs and superstitions for example. I use a teaching method that covers spelling, vocabulary and pronunciation of the words. The latter is often missing in other courses and tutoring. Together we will ensure that you have a good command of the Portuguese language!

    Portuguese, Spanish and Italian classes tailor-made for your needs
    Hello there, My name is Zé and I'm here to teach you my native language! I am a polyglot who speaks four languages (currently learning my fifth one, Japanese), so I know the struggles of learning a new language from scratch. I can adapt our lessons to be more structured or more flexible depending on your desires and needs. Lessons can be general or focused on specific topics, depending on the client. I am available in the center of Amsterdam, starting on the 2nd of October. Looking forward to meet you!

    Portuguese language and culture lessons with a native speaker
    The wonderful Portuguese adventure! Advantages of learning a new language: Learning a new language is fun. But what I’m (and you should be) after is not bilingualism but instead biculturalism. We think by aid of words. Therefore language shapes thought. In part this is because working in a second language slows down the thinking. No wonder people feel different when speaking a second language. And no wonder they feel looser, more spontaneous, perhaps more assertive or funnier or blunter. Studies show that being able to speak another language is generally linked to a more flexible brain, developing the brain’s ability to plan and prioritize. Also it betters our defenses against dementia in old age. Advantages of learning Portuguese: • 250 million native speakers worldwide • 5th most common language in the world • It has been an official language since 1297 • It’s usage is spread over 4 continents (Europe, South America, Africa, Asia) Now business, The pace, duration, frequency and schedule of the classes is totally up to the student to decide. The best case scenario is 1-2x per week depending on both parties availability. Focus on diverse subjects is possible, for example, grammar, diction, reading comprehension, written production, conversational skills. In case the student has no specific requests, together we will follow the guidelines of a trusted book (that I myself bring to the class and the student doesn’t need to acquire). The classes will rely also on bilingual children’s books and audio media. This double edged approach allows for fun learning ways and cultural assimilation. In every class the student will be directly influenced by worldwide Portuguese culture ( music, history, geography). Periodically we will evaluate how the classes are evolving so as to rapidly and effectively shift focus to where it is needed.

    Portuguese Language and Brazilian Culture: Learn with fun!
    Do you want to speak Portuguese and get closer to the Brazilian culture in a fun and dynamic way? Well, I am a Brazilian who can show you our History, our art, customs and the great diversity of Brazilian Portuguese accents, as if you were on a virtual trip to Brazil. I have been teaching my language to people of different levels and objectives for more than two years, which gave me great experience in adapting my classes according to the needs of each student. Thus, in addition to traditional grammar, I use movies, songs, literature and other resources according to the profile of each student. In Brazil, I worked in schools and science museums, where I gained practice teaching children, youth, and adults. I also worked writing and reviewing articles for magazines, so I have great experience with the written Portuguese language. I offer online classes via webcam or face-to-face (in Granada, Spain) so that the student can choose the way that suits him best.
