Private lessons of Brazilian Portuguese with a native
I already have a degree in Portuguese-English, I think that pronunciation is very important for good communication, so I try to help my students with that.

Learn Brazilian culture and language (Portuguese from Brazil)
This course offers you the development of your knowledge in grammar, the enrichment of your vocabulary, the training in the oral expression, the comprehension, the pronunciation and the practice of the written language. In addition, the course may provide assistance with the preparation of interrogations or exams. My goal is to make the student progress with joy and curiosity to learn, without overburdening him. I give homework after each lesson. The method I use to learn a language is called communicative: it allows an immediate and concrete application of your knowledge of the Portuguese language. It translates as: Role plays, discussions, simulations, recordings, exercises in real situations, video, power point presentation ... A "digestible" approach to Portuguese grammar, developed from the grammar book (and authentic documents regularly updated (newspapers, stories, song texts, television and radio programs, exercises ...)
