Hello! I am glad you are interested in learning Portuguese. It will be one of the important languages to know as the Americas become more and more interdependent commercially and culturally.
I have spoken Portuguese all my life and lived twelve years of my childhood in Brazil.
Portuguese is a complex language, but with patience and a little time you will begin to enjoy its beautiful nuances. When working with a new student I like to start right away with a basic vocabulary and simple conversational exchanges. This way the student increases in confidence to engage in everyday dialog. As the student becomes more advanced I slowly develop the lesson content so it is eventually conducted completely in Portuguese.
I also enjoy very much teaching English as a second language. It is exciting to see my student feel more empowered as his or her English skills are honed through diligent practice.
I look forward to our first session!
I love to teach English. It is such a rich language with which to work.
I have taught English to native speakers who wish to expand the efficacy of their language usage, as well as to persons who wish to learn it as a second language.
Portuguese is the most complex of all the Latin/Romance languages. It's melodious sounds make it a beautiful language to hear as well as read. It is rich in descriptiveness, grammar, and compositional possibilities. My interest is to get my pupil/student immediately engaged in very basic conversation. As his/her confidence builds I like to introduce more and more vocabulary as well as the rules of grammar and composition. The bulk of the work is oral with written back-up for initial word recognition and vocabulary development.
