I am Elvina, Brazilian from Brasilia.
I have been teaching Portuguese since 1997 for bankers of many different banks of NYC such as UBS, Swiss bank, Standard America, banco Real, Bradesco bank, etc; , and for private people of different professions as well.
Regarding the bankers, they really need to understand their Brazilian clients speaking in order to avoid business misunderstandings. Many were sent to me to be prepared for a certain period of time with job opportunities to work in Brazil.
So, based on that need to speed up the learning process without pushing the students, I developed a new teaching technique that includes grammar, a little of Brazilian literature, and Brazilian videos as lab. That way, not only have I helped my students to listen better, but I have also helped them improve their learning process with the use of expressions, mostly on the spoken Portuguese.
With the Brazilian videos, students also practice their speaking and writing parts of the learning language, and It has also worked for family members learning together.
I have proved along the way that this form of teaching my native language works well and faster.
You will be welcome to learn Brazilian Portuguese language with me.
I am here waiting for you.
