Learn Portuguese in 10 weeks - private or group lessons -- professional with teaching degree - private and group lessons - lessen per Skype

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 beide landen gewoond en gestudeerd, dus ben een ‘native speaker, met veel kennis van de bijbehorende cultuur.

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 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 zet ik altijd het 'waarom' 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.

About Me

Teaching is my ultimate passion and even after 19 years, it feels like the first year, except the experience makes it even better.

Born in Brazil I discovered teaching at a young age (20) and have never stopped. My mother was a teacher too and I sometimes think this is more than a profession : it is a vocation.

Because my English was not good enough my father sent me to London to study English and this language became my main passion, now it shares a place with Dutch and Portuguese. I have lived in the UK five years (London and Plymouth) and loved it.

After this British adventure, I studied Portuguese in Portugal because I had an opportunity there to work & study, which helped me a lot to learn the essence of grammar and literature, but my 19 years experience in teaching makes it complete. I strongly think one can not do one without the other.

As a teacher I try to explain the how of grammatical topics, to keep it interesting. Sometimes with for instance a historical annotation, which students love to learn too. I will also teach about our complicated social culture, this is interwoven in the course.

You will be inspired, but never bored !

Fantastic and warm teacher
Very good teacher!!!
Useful and dinamic classes. Highly recommended.
Rustig, goede uitleg, leuke les geweest!

...
Qualified language coach with 20 years of experience offers intensive lessons Dutch in a small class or online. My classes (fully Coronaproof) will start again in February 2021. We have an excellent classroom in the center of Rotterdam, near metrostation Beurs, classes (coronaproof separate tables at 1,8 meter distance, good circulation) with 5 students. You can chose between the online package of lessons in a comfortable way with Whereby or come to the classes in January starting 11.01.21. One group lesson per week from 19.30 until 21.00 hours. I work with Whereby, which is more academic than Skype or Zoom. My English is fluent, as well as Portuguese and Spanish. I understand the difficulties to overcome barriers for Latin based languages and for expats in general, as I have been an expat too .. Online lessons take 1,0 hour, once a week, during 10 weeks to reach one extra level. This is the normal speed. Live lessons are 1,5 hours, during 10 weeks to reach one level. Including exam and Certificate. Intensive race? That's also possible in five to ten full days, I am used to give these very intensive trainings to CEOs who just arrived ... and want all lessons within 3 or 4 weeks. Based on European system A-1, A-2, B-1, B-2 and C-1 As soon as students improve their knowledge of Dutch, I always advise and coach them to do the Staatsexamen II, the only formal Certificate in this country, recognized by employers and universities. I will try to switch to Dutch after a few lessons, to put your knowledge into practice., Teaching is my ultimate passion and even after 20 years, it feels like the first time and students always feel inspired to overcome the obstacles of the beginning. I will also teach you about the Dutch social culture, this is interwoven in the course and is strongly related to the language.

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. In addition, I am very familiar with the challenges of Anglophones and Francophones when it comes to the Portuguese language, but I can also help those who have other mother tongues and are interested in Portuguese. I love grammar and grammatical differences between languages. I think we learn better by having fun.
