Learn Brazilian Portuguese now and make a difference in your career !

Methodology

I am a Brazilian journalist based in Birmingham, UK, since 2011 with over a decade of experience teaching English in Brazil for all levels of students. Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced ones. I also helped students in learning English for business and tourism.

I am teaching Portuguese for foreigners sicne I moved to The UK in 2011. My experience here also includes working as Interprester in Portuguese and English and also helped students applicants of GCSE in Portuguese.

My lessons are focused on Brazilian Portuguese. My aim is presenting the student, particularities of Portuguese as a second language using internet, music, films and all kind of interactive material. My methodology can vary according to the client`s request and needs.

Experience

I have been teaching for over a decade and I guess my experience in teaching Portuguese and English along those years has given me the necessary approcah to understand the needs of every single student. As a result, I had one of my students learning effective Portuguese and English to be prepared to deal with daily situations in a country like Brazil. I also bring curiosities about our culture, social issues and of course, the language itself.
