Portuguese native offering Portuguese lessons (languages spoken: English, Spanish and some French and Italian)

Methodology

I am Ana, a native speaker of Portuguese (Portugal).

At the moment I have students in different stages in life (from a child to a retired person and also professionals) and that want to learn Portuguese for different reasons. I adapt my classes to their needs.

We have been using Skype and Whatsapp (I can use Zoom or other platform if you prefer) and I send a summary of our class with the grammar and vocabulary we have seen in that lesson so that they can review it after the lesson.

I have a university degree but my professional experience is mostly as a private tutor and administrator.

I am married to a Spanish/Italian and our children speak Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and English fluently. I taught both my husband and children (who never lived in Portugal) to speak Portuguese to a proficient level. So besides English native speakers I can help also Spanish, Italian and French native speakers as I speak these languages too (bilingual Spanish, B1 French and A2 Italian although I can understand Italian quite well).

First I will talk to my new student and find what their Portuguese level is, as well as their needs. I will try to understand what their motivations to learn Portuguese are and plan the next lessons according to their interests and the way they learn.

I will add new vocabulary each class and I will do fun activities and games.

Experience

At the moment I have different English students and I teach them by webcam.

I first started teaching Portuguese in Ireland when I lived there. My first student was Polish (the classes were in English) and after that she moved to Portugal and still lives there now.

I have also worked in Ireland and Spain (in Spain besides Spanish I also used Portuguese, English and some French while working for a French company).

I also have been teaching Portuguese to my children since they were born (they are 9 and 7 now). They can read and write in Portuguese and I keep teaching them Portuguese as they grow up. I also have experience with children as a volunteer at my children's Primary school. I am also a volunteer at an autism charity.

Perfect! I love my lessons with Ana Margarida! Each lesson she asks me questions about my life, my day etc. and I find it much easier to learn and pick up Portuguese as we are in conversation. Ana is a fantastic tutor: very kind, friendly and patient.

As Ana Margarida's husband, I have been certainly the student she had for the longest time. When we met 15 years ago, I didn't speak Portuguese at all, I only understood some words in written text due to the similarity with my native Spanish, and I would struggle to understand anything in a conversation because the accent is very different and the false friends are innumerable.

Now, despite I never lived in Portugal, Portuguese is one of the languages I speak better. I can do everything independently when we are on holidays.

Additionally, we are a multilingual family thanks to her commitment to teach the language to our children, whose level is indistinguishable from any other native, despite the fact they have been in Portugal just on holidays.

In addition, after living for ten years in Spain, and due to her love for detail and precision, I can assure than her level in Spanish, and her knowledge of the Spanish culture is so high (C2) that 90%+ Spaniards wouldn't realise at all she isn't Spanish.

I have been certainly very lucky meeting such a good language teacher. You might think that being her husband I'm partial. But you don't need to believe me, take her free lesson and check yourself if I'm right.
