Portuguese language lessons from a native qualified Portuguese teacher

Olá! I'm from Portugal and I've moved recently from Lisbon to Brussels. I'm a teacher for already ten years long and in the last decade I taught Portuguese language in a wide range of levels for students in Portugal, London and South Asia.

I have a Degree in Portuguese Language and Literature and a post-degree in Didact and Teaching of Portuguese by New University of Lisbon. I have also a Master Degree in Comunication and Culture.

It is with high interest that I organise pedagogic materials and practice exercises departing from cinema, literature, music and different other cultural expressions originally from the countries with Portuguese as an official language. I have all the pleasure in supplying several multimedia platforms for my students regarding exercises and linguistic improvement in Portuguese language.

Até breve!
Best regards

Portuguese language and culture lessons with a native speaker
De echte Portugese ervaring! 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.

Learn Brazilian Portuguese with a native speaker
This Brazilian Portuguese course is suitable for those who already speak a little bit and who want to practice and deepen themselves more, as well as for those who still want to take the first steps. With me you will find enough encouragement and security to expand your boundaries and understand, write and speak Portuguese more. My approach is organically structured with an eye to relevant themes for the student and self-knowledge. I studied International Politics and have interests related to ecology and spirituality. I live in the beautiful city of Recife with two cats and am also a flower essence therapist.
