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). I also use revision guides and other online resources for higher academic expectations.
I can teach adults looking for specific topics relating to business or holidays for example, as I know that creating a connection between your interests and the lessons is key. I am also happy to teach children by using more active/interactive ways of learning. Learning should always be fun!
I can teach online or face to face; in your own house, at a cafe etc.
If you are advanced in Portuguese and simply looking for extra practice or accent reduction, I am also very happy to offer an alternative session style through spoken practice over a walk or a coffee.
The important thing for me is that you quickly develop your skills (always respecting your own pace) whilst having a good time! I am very friendly and aim to ensure a welcoming and fun atmosphere during the sessions!
Olá, I am Xavier. I was born in Porto, Portugal where I lived for 19 years. I moved to Bath, England five years ago when I came to study Dance at University. I am now currently working as a freelance dance artist and teacher.
Two years ago, just after I graduated from University I started to work as a choreographer/movement director for a youth theatre company who was working on their Spanish/English bilingual educational show. The cast and myself toured the show with a follow-up bilingual drama workshop in schools across the South West. This sparked the of teaching within me and so this project became the beginning of my journey in education.
A few months later I was then teaching contemporary dance and physical theatre at Bath Spa University and in other colleges and performing arts school across Portugal and the South West. I then also started to teach street dance, contemporary dance and drama in primary schools, where I have also gained some experience as supply teacher.
At this moment of my life I found myself fully immersed in education after two years of working professionally with a wide rage of ages including adults. I have now come to the point where I have the desire to expand my skills by sharing my native language knowledge - teaching Portuguese to foreign people.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you wish to get practicing your spoken, or written Portuguese, or even learn the whole language from scratch! I welcome all levels and ages. I can also translate documents, speeches or anything you might need.
