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.

Extra information

I also speak English and Spanish, so feel free to contact me in one of these languages if you still don't know anything in Portuguese :-)

TRADUCTION (THÈME - VERSION) : join me to learn intensively, how to be a very good translator. We are also available to translate for you.
🛑 Hi everyone, I'm Mister, coming from côte d'ivoire, I'm ivorian, so a native French. Being an online French teacher and also English learner at the University Felix houphouët Boigny of Cocody, I dare to suggest you my humble service in the French grammar rules teaching. At Universal School of the Francophones, you'll be able to improve your French by knowing new grammatical rule everyday and learn through methodical lessons (Grammaire)

Formation
Intensive private latin dance courses (Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Chacha, Zouk antillais, Kuduru-african dance, Brazilian zouk)
Private lessons / intensive Latin dance training (Cuban salsa, porto / LA salsa, bachata, merengue, chacha, zouk antillais, African kuduru-dance, Brazilian zouk *) (* = it's THE dance of the moment that paradoxically has nothing zouk or anything Brazilian - today it's pop music for two, mixing creativity, sensuality, air fluidity that plays a lot with the movements of bust, head and body undulations.) METHODOLOGY Learn dance and let talk about your body / emotions, make the difference in the evening ("social dancing") or prepare an event (wedding for example): Focused on pedagogy, technique and pleasure, the dance space offers personalized and individualized courses of Salsa (porto on 1, Cuban), Bachata, Merengue, Kuduru-African dance, Zouk Antillais, Zouk Brazilian (pop music) (...) according to your desires. Objective: to adapt to your request and your desire. In the eyes of many neophytes, a couple who dance well performs spectacular figures. To dance is to tell / live together a story, to produce beauty in movement and to make the steps, the attitudes and the connections between the various actions aesthetic / harmonious. This fluidity is born of emotion, felt and transmitted. Simplicity, communication, listening, sharing, emotion, valorization of the other: it is, in addition to technical knowledge (body expression, rhythmic, visual), what you will improve during this training at evolutive levels. In a friendly atmosphere, you will be taken in hand whatever your initial level. Objective: a combination between on the one hand, intuition / feeling / improvisation and on the other hand, technique. It is possible to take the course in couple or solo. According to your desire, it is possible to propose 70% of a 1st dance, 30% of another complementary dance, the bases of the one influencing the other. Whether you are preparing a "choreography" for a special event (wedding, birthday, work, etc.), a show or simply looking to improve your skills to impress on the dance floor, the final learning of these courses consists in : * perform a beautiful interpretation of the music with appropriate movements, in addition to performing a dynamic work that involves a footwork and body movements adapted * execute an appropriate technique that will allow you to shine quickly on the dance floor, relying on the strong point of private lessons * Set up style, movement, footwork, and adjusted body coordination, allowing for rapid dance progression, while taking advanced base steps and a variety of movements, allowing you to not only acquire a sensual style but also to improve his own improvisational abilities, focusing on the characteristics of modern dance. * work on your balance, your musicality, your body strength (...), while having fun, while you train and radically improve the coordination of your body. In summary, these courses are at the beginner level (basic steps with some general variations), intermediate (faster speed and more concentration on technique, body mechanics, control, footwork, posture, balance and more complex movements) or advanced (for slightly more experienced dancers). Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *. (* study 2020) To respond to requests received, it is indeed possible to offer this course (birthday, party, christmas, event ...) to the person of your choice. TEACHER / TRAINER In Europe, Latin America or North America, our teacher has specialized and worked for more than 17 years in the field of dance, in renowned international institutions, with for words the individualized pedagogy, and the careful methodology , all anchored in a pleasant and jovial moment. LOCATION, SCHEDULE - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (example: notes that can be re-read on the chat). In this context, the videoconference sessions for which you asked me to seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place very optimally and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

Private lessons of Brazilian Portuguese with a native speaker
Hello, I've got a bachelor's degree in Portuguese and English, French Certificate given by the Alliance Française, and currently I am doing a Master in Didactique des Langues Étrangères et Secondes (Foreign and Second Language Didactics), with a specialization in FLE (Français Langue Étrangère/French as a foreign language) and in ESL (English Second Language). With knowledge of linguistics, being a native Portuguese speaker, and experience in private lessons, I offer to help and support students in learning and/or developing their skills.

I am available to answer any questions! Thank you and see you soon !

Get to know the beautiful French language and culture in all its facets!
French is of course a beautiful, lilting language. Who doesn't want to learn it? I'd be happy to help you with that. In our minds we are already going on a trip to France and practice the situations you will encounter there. Depending on your goals and your level, we can go in all directions. Do you finally want to be able to have a conversation with the locals during the holidays? Then we work on that. Do you have a house in France and you want to be able to talk to all handymen, then we will get to work. And if you do a lot of business with French-speaking countries, we will choose a business French method and practice with the situations in which you need the language. In short, we can go in all directions! Because French is such a lilting language and the pronunciation is sometimes difficult, I like to work with chansons. By singing along you learn the pronunciation naturally and the lyrics of the songs can be the basis for a grammatical topic or a social topic to talk about. I am also working on a course based on the chanson. I'd be happy to tell you more about this.

Carolina
Dutch conversation lesson for children, teenagers and adults
My way of teaching is mostly fun. Why?! It can be quite scary to learn another language, let alone to speak it... I can give you the feeling of security, so that you dare to speak, in this case the Dutch language. We will focus on listening, pronunciation and of course talk talk talk. During all this I also explain the necessary grammar, of course fully adapted to your level. Because however you look at it, grammar is also necessary, especially as a basis! But don't worry, it won't be a boring list of just grammar, that's why that bit of fun in a lesson is so important! If you're open to that, I'll also give you homework, which will challenge you more ;) Are you ready for this challenge?! I look forward to seeing you in my class :)

Gemma
Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.
