Learn Portuguese in 10 weeks - private or group lessons -- professional with teaching degree - intensive course of 15 hours

Oi Tudo bem? My name is Marcelo and I am from São Paulo.

I live in The Hague and I teach Portuguese in The Hague, Rotterdam-Centre and Amsterdam.

I formed a small group students for Portuguese (A-1), that will start on monday 25.03.19 in Rotterdam-Centre. Free parking. Do you want to join ? Let me know.

The rate per hour is much lower than the mentioned private lesson rate. The lessons are from 19.30 until 21.00 hours. It is a very small group ( 4 or 5 students) so it will feel like private lessons.

As an experienced teacher of Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese Business Culture Training, working for two well known language institutes and with more than 18 years of teaching experience based on a Masters Degree of Literature, I want to expand my activities, because of an increased demand for affordable lessons Portuguese.

Group and private lessons consist of 10 lessons of 1.5 intensive hours (15 hours) and an extra (!) lesson live in a wonderful new Brazilian Restaurant.

new : I Will bring you in direct contact with other enthousiastic students of mine who had other teacher before me and are very happy with my effective style of teaching and offered to me to share this with others. So these are real referrals !!

Private lessons can also be reserved per lesson. Only groups have a fixed schedule.

My goal is to teach you the basics (European level A-1, A-2) or if you are advanced (B-1 and B-2) in a short period. with Dutch or English as a channel for explanation of the grammar.

I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. ’tarefas de casa’ (homework) will take you about 3 to 4 hours per week.

The private and group lessons consist of a structured explanation of grammar and a part of the lesson where the student puts this immediately into practice with fluency practice (short sentences).

I have an enormous passion for teaching, and after 19 years it still feels like brand new (even better with all the experience now..) so students can feel this passion.

Give it a try, you will learn Portuguese much faster than you expected.

Abraços (kind regards) Marcelo.

About Me

Teaching is my ultimate passion and even after 18 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.

I have 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 17 years experience made it complete. I strongly think one can not do 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 !

Pas 2 lessen gehad, dus nog moeilijk te zeggen. Positief zover; hoop wel dat we later wat meer conversatie kunnen oefenen
Marcelo is een hele prettige docent met liefde voor de Portugese taal en het vak van docent. Hij geeft goed gestructureerd les en kan snel inschatten wat voor niveau iemand heeft en op welke manier je het meest effectief leert. Absolute aanbeveling!
Experienced professor with 18 years of experience in teaching Portuguese and Dutch through two renowned institutes, he offers Dutch classes for Brazilian or Portuguese students. Classes are weekly (groups and private) and each lesson takes 1.5 hours. The class is very intensive, even with the small group. Each course will take 10 weeks, be it 10 lessons of 1.5 hours. In principle I teach beginners (A-1) en intermediate level (A-2). I am specialized in training Brazilian and Portuguese students in an accessible way with an explanation of the Dutch grammar in Portuguese. Also the material is partially in Portuguese, because at the beginning it is good to have someone from your land, who explains everything in Portuguese. Then I'm teaching more and more in Dutch, when the student is more prepared and in a class you already start to write sentences in Dutch! For groups we have a very central class location in Rotterdam, with free parking and a bus stop very close by. For private lessons he would come to his house and find another nice place. I'm sure you too will learn this difficult language ... do not worry.

Dutch for Internationals, Students and Job seekers!
This class is meant for people who want to learn functional Dutch (i.e. for practical usage) and who already have a good grasp of the English language. I'm at C1 level in Dutch (fluent) and have learnt it as a foreigner so I'm very familiar with the obstacles students face while learning. I have a natural proclivity for languages, I speak English, Hindi, Kumaoni, Dutch and Spanish, Italian (basic) and German (learning). I've learnt these languages on my own and in the process I've developed a method that enables students to learn them quickly and start using them in no time. I'm an avid user of the Michel Thomas method.
