Learn Portuguese in 10 weeks - private or group lessons -- professional with teaching degree - private and group lessons - online or hybrid

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 Brazilië en Portugal gewoond en gestudeerd, dus ben een ‘native speaker, met veel kennis van de bijbehorende cultuur. Door speling of voorziening van het lot, ben ik tweetalig.

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 al 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 leg ik altijd het 'waarom' uit 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 of Dutch 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 third 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.

Being a spokesperson of a Dutch Ministry I developed my Dutch further and further to a very high level ofcommunication.. 10 years ago I started to teach Dutch to expats, were struggling with the difficult brekthrough after reaching level A-1. This is really my ‘niche’.

Nowadays I teach more and more Dutch to Expats and Foreign Students, but it is a tight race with Portuguese.

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 !

Fijne rustig iemand, die alles goed uitlegt, een plezier om van hem les te krijgen.
1e les gehad en zeer goede indruk. Marcelo stemt de les goed af op ons niveau en neemt de tijd. We kijken uit naar de volgende.
Ik heb zelf voorafgaand aan een zakelijke periode in Brazilie les gehad van Marcelo, zowel in groepsverband als prive. Marcelo is ontzettend goed in het helder uitleggen van grammatica en het geven van een inkijk in de BR cultuur. Daarnaast een ontzettend fijn persoon om mee te werken. Jammer dat de lessen voorbij zijn!
Leuk en duidelijk!
Fantastic and warm teacher
...
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 2022. 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 -7students. You can also chose for the online package of lessons in a comfortable way with Whereby, Teams or Zoom. Online lessons are one on one or on two maximum, for better results. 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 a higher 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.

Portuguese for English Speakers - Brave the lusophone world!
With 270M+ speakers around the world, Portuguese is the last of the Romance Languages (the last "child" of Latin) and the third most spoken in the West, just behind Spanish and English. The laguage is spoken mainly in Portugal (its homeland) and Brazil (most native speakers); knowing how to speak Portuguese will open ways into the best of Lusitan and Brazilian cultures, with a lot of legends and world history to discover! Also, Portuguese is, perhaps, the most sentimental language in the world: you will have at your disposal a myriad of words to express yourself fully and deeply, in a way you never realised it was possible. Ready to discover a whole new world?!

During my Portuguese lessons you will not only learn the language, but I will also enrich your knowledge about Portuguese culture: Portuguese customs and superstitions for example. I use a teaching method that covers spelling, vocabulary and pronunciation of the words. The latter is often missing in other courses and tutoring. Together we will ensure that you have a good command of the Portuguese language!

Natalia
Learn English and/or Portuguese - conversation classes
English and Portuguese conversation only classes. I know how overwhelming it can be trying to speak a new language, so that is why I plan my classes with some NLP techniques, making each lesson personalized according with the straights and challenges of each student. After all, learning a new language can be fun and interesting. Just one important thing, I don’t teach grammar, just conversation and pronunciation. It’s a practical class, that’s why you need to have an intermediary/advanced level to attend. What we will do during a class: * reading an article or text and talk about it; * listening to songs and comparing with the lyrics, understanding the meaning; * watching small videos. It all depends on how do you learn better, I adapt to your style. In addition to my qualifications, I also have the TEFL certification for English teaching (IELTS overall band score C1) and Portuguese native speaker. My goal here is to help you improving your conversational skills either in English or Portuguese. If you have any questions, send a message. See you soon 😊
