Portuguese language and culture lessons with a native speaker

De echte Portugese ervaring!

Group classes starting coming September! Meld je aan :)

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.

About Me

24 year old Portuguese boy from Lisboa, Portugal. This is my 3rd year living in the Netherlands where I found the world is larger than what I previously expected.
I’m completing my MSc in Chemical Engineering at TUDelft. The past few years I have developed a great passion for people, arts and literature. Some years ago my family and I accommodated an Italian girl for the whole academic year. It was during that time I found I love to teach people how to talk and understand Portuguese.
A couple of years ago I found a new hobby: poetry. With every taught class, I found I learn something new and valuable. This give and take from the student-teacher relationship fills my heart with joy.

Education

Bachelor in Chemical Engineering at the University of Lisbon finished in 2018.
Currently undertaking my MSc in Chemical Engineering, with focus on sustainable energy solutions.

Experience / Qualifications

Despite my academic path having nothing to do with linguistics I'm fully capable to teach you Portuguese :) I read 15 books a year and I'm consistently trying to improve different areas of expertise, most of them non related to my scientific academia pursuit.
