There are many different reasons why one wants to learn or needs help in learning a foreign language. Some take languages in High School or College and struggle to pass their exams. Others are business people that will be transferred on an assignment to a foreign country and need an introduction to business language as well as the basics to start a living abroad. Then again others will travel to specific countries on a vacation or social visit and want to learn how to speak a little before they go, or they come back haven fallen in love with the people and cultural richness and want to learn how to be deepen their language skill in order to eventually be fluent.
I have experience in all of those settings and my method of teaching languages (Portuguese and German) is oriented towards the goal that wants or needs to be achieved. The emphasis of the learning method will depend on what area needs to be improved on, or what is to be achieved: is it about learning how to speak, is it also about learning how to write, does the student need to improve on his/her reading skills. We first define what we need to achieve, and then I will tailor the lessons towards that aim with interesting, fun and informative content that will make the student learn what he/she needs to learn in a heartbeat! I love languages, live in a tri-lingual household, and would love to help you discover the passion for languages too.
