I focus on three main topic areas: writing, reading and speaking. My initial aim is to teach you the grammar and the vocabulary. I tailor my lessons to target your weak spots and reinforce where you are already skilled at.
My classes are based on the needs of the student. I ascertain what their goal is eg. improve speaking skills, or understanding the different between perfect and imperfect tenses, and plan sessions based on that. I use revision guides, online resources and my own lesson plans based on national curriculum schemes of work.
My methodology is based on your doubts, quests, curiosity, and "needs to know". I will fulfill that. No boring books, but a lot of guidance and roads to go for you to learn how to find what you looking for without long hours under a candle but a very bright bulb over your head.
Learning a language without effort. Creative methods of teaching with simple, effective steps. Learn without any issues and become fluent and natural. Become a Portuguese Pro in any area - now! All the students will leave knowing how to speak portuguese, how to write portuguese. Looking back, they won’t feel the boredom of learning.
Do you want to learn the language for pleasure? To travel? For business? Or for an exam? Here is how I can help. I plan the sessions based on your goals and learning needs, always trying to make it fun and diverse (informal discussions, readings, video narration, studies of music you like or a sports article, etc).
For me, the best way to learn is "playing", I mean, in a relaxed way, playing some games, doing some exercises, activities, projects, listening and translating music, without any pressure. I will have some materials ready for each lesson - different things and nothing heavy. Lessons need to be enjoyable if students are to learn quickly.
My teaching method is based on discussion, and how I can help my students become more confident in speaking English/Portuguese. Usually I try to use as little books as possible, because I believe too many books confuse students who are trying to learn languages. I usually plan my lessons before hand, and organise them related to day to day teaching.
When it comes to teaching, I start with a bare-bones approach, covering the basics of grammar, syntax, vocabulary and oral expression, so that students can get comfortably with the lessons gained and learned, before moving on to a more advanced level, in line with what is currently taught at the standard AS/A-Level in secondary schools.
I am a 24 year old Portuguese recent graduate, from the University of Salford (2:1). I have had French education all my life and achieved a score of 15/20 in the French Baccalaureate. In addition to that I have a foreign language diploma in Spanish (DELE) and the IELTS, and can help with preparation for those exams.
I give foreign languages lessons to primary, secondary or adults that wish to learn and/or improve their skills in a foreign language. I can help you with any aspect of the language you need such as pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, syntax or cultural and literary aspects. My priority is to make sure you are confident with the subject.
I can give lessons to people that have just started to learn Portuguese or that already have some knowledge of the language. Videos, apps and easy graphics are my preferable method of teaching. I'm a perfectionist and like to end everything I start, so I'll not rest until your goals have been achieved.
Presentations and summarising tasks along with essays and for portuguese, verbal/speaking lessons.
My lessons will include introduction to portuguese so that my students can receive a first feel of the language and as we develop will be more intentive. My teaching methods revolve around attention to detail and persistence. After each lesson a work sheet will be provided. I believe we learn by practising.
My focus is on making it work for you, leveraging on your existing skills, interests and motivations. Adapting the most recent research and tools to your learning preferences, so you don’t waste your time, money or energy. Fun, challenging, purposeful activities will get you engaged and happy about your progress.
I am a very patient person so don't worry, you can get there! I base my classes on Live Chats; PowerPoint presentations; games; learning support via e-mail; online class discussions; simulations; if required, classes in person by the end of each level; others. I adapt the methods to the individual needs of each student.
My teaching method is reading, learning with puzzles and other games, spelling, writing, describing situations , all depending what is the best for you to learn. All my techniques and methods of instruction depends of your stage of learning. I can teach you online or face to face at your own house, in your own comfort.
I always focus on what students already know and on their main difficulties. I can use books, videos or anything, according to preferences. Sometimes students feel sad because they don't understand something or they think they have doubts they shoudn't have.
I was born and raised in Portugal and I´m now in Bristol taking my Bsc in Biology. I teach Portuguese and I tend to shape my lessons accordingly to the student I have since every one of them is a different person and should be treated as such so that they can fully explore their potential in my lessons and in life.
The main methodologies are listed below in the chronological order of their development: Grammar Translation – the classical method Direct Method – discovering the importance of speaking Audio-lingualism – the first modern methodology Humanistic Approaches – a range of holistic methods applied to language learning Communicative Language Teaching – the modern standard method
Depending on the aim of the student/s will based my approach with a easy start on the main words and culture of the Portuguese-speaking country. Can evolve to more intense lessons if the student/s shows interest in continue learning of the language.
I base my classes in what students need. Vocabulary, accent, writing skills, speaking skills, listening skills or reading skills. Can also provided assistance with grammatical topics or translations. My teaching method is based in on-line lessons via Skype or other.
Each lesson is prepared and tailored to suit what is best for every Portuguese learner. Even if you are starting from scratch, you will get all my support to be successful. My teaching methodology will use videos, conversation, writing, games, reading and homework either. The homework would consist, e.g. learning vocabulary and recording your progress.
when I am teaching someone I like to go through the topic first, then write down some keywords (translate them if I am teaching a language) and after that I like do some questions and some speaking if its a language lesson. I also like to write the keywords on some flashcards so its easier to remember them when it comes to having tests or exams.
My teaching method is simply start with the basics of the Portuguese then get into grammar more intensely.
Learning should always be fun. The teacher must find a way to get the students interested in what is being taught. Creating a connection between their interests and the lessons is key. Finding something that makes the lesson relevant to them.
On our first meeting I will access if you have any basic knowledge of the language. I'll also try to understand your goals and reason to want to learn. Communication with your other half's family... work... travelling...plain curiosity... I'll ask what your interests are and establish if there's a time deadline to have into consideration.
I believe in a open, friendly environment where students get the chance to share their views on the subject without being afraid of making mistakes. Only from mistakes can one develop its skills. Visual Images to grab students attention and bring a good dynamic to the studying process are a way to memorize and understand the concepts better.
My teaching methods consist of understanding rather than memorising.
My teaching meths are based on expressions. My pupil is free to express any question related to the program or any other matter that can help to clarify the subject. My lesson starts with a powerpoint presentation following the explanation.
I've found that children react very well when we use songs, pictures and games. Even teens and adults, it's easier for them when we use those kinds of techniques. The secret is to adjust the kind of music, images and games according to the student's age and learning ability. I believe learning should be done with the things we love the most.
