About Phillip


Bio

I am a life long speaker. My mother and Father both immigrated to the United States from the Azores. My Father taught adult education during the 60s in Lisbon and subsequently passed his expertise in pronunciation and diction onto me. While traveling in Portugal, I was told several times on vacation I have no discernible accent when speaking European Portuguese.

I am a life long speaker. My mother and Father both immigrated to the United States from the Azores. My Father taught adult education during the 60s in Lisbon and subsequently passed his expertise in pronunciation and diction onto me. While traveling in Portugal, I was told several times on vacation I have no discernible accent when speaking European Portuguese.

I can read and write in Portuguese but would not consider myself qualified to teach others to do the same. In addition I did my senior thesis on Antonio De Oliveira Salazar and enjoy discussing Portuguese culture and History. I love the language and believe it is truly the most beautiful Romance language.

I have a great sense of humor and am willing to teach proper pronunciation with levity and patience. Speaking Portuguese requires patience and practice, especially if you want to speak it well. I look forward to working with anyone willing to make the commitment it takes to learn to roll your R's.
