    Learn to Speak European Portuguese like a native with me

    I specialise in tutoring European Portuguese to adults and teenagers. I provide lessons to students hoping to pass Portuguese exams at school and to adults learning Portuguese as a hobby or with the purpose of moving to Portugal.

    The classes are made specifically to suit each student and their learning style. I provide the slides and copies of the books after each session. I also assign homework every lesson and provide progress reports. From the first lesson, you can expect some of the focus of the class to be on conversation. This is because I believe the best way to learn a language is by using it, in this case speaking it.

    Whether you are an absolute beginner or an advanced speaker of Portuguese, I am prepared to help you take it to the next level! I am super excited to start teaching all of you and to help you on your journey to fluency in Portuguese.

    About Me

    I have always been passionate about teaching and I love seeing my students improving their Portuguese skills. Especially when we start increasing the speaking time during lessons.
    I moved to England at the age of 11 and had to learn English on my own so I understand the struggles of learning a new language.
    I know not everyone learns languages the same way, therefore I like using music, as a tool to learn Portuguese.

    Education

    University of Leeds, BA Italian.
    I have also lived in Shanghai, China and Bergamo, Italy where I studied and taught Portuguese privately to students and adults.

    Experience / Qualifications

    Tutoring for over two years.
    Most of my students are adults hoping to move to Portugal or to pass Portuguese language exams such as CAPLE, CIPLE and PFL

    Portuguese language and culture lessons with a native speaker
    The wonderful Portuguese adventure! Advantages of learning a new language: Learning a new language is fun. But what I’m (and you should be) after is not bilingualism but instead biculturalism. We think by aid of words. Therefore language shapes thought. In part this is because working in a second language slows down the thinking. No wonder people feel different when speaking a second language. And no wonder they feel looser, more spontaneous, perhaps more assertive or funnier or blunter. Studies show that being able to speak another language is generally linked to a more flexible brain, developing the brain’s ability to plan and prioritize. Also it betters our defenses against dementia in old age. Advantages of learning Portuguese: • 250 million native speakers worldwide • 5th most common language in the world • It has been an official language since 1297 • It’s usage is spread over 4 continents (Europe, South America, Africa, Asia) Now business, The pace, duration, frequency and schedule of the classes is totally up to the student to decide. The best case scenario is 1-2x per week depending on both parties availability. Focus on diverse subjects is possible, for example, grammar, diction, reading comprehension, written production, conversational skills. In case the student has no specific requests, together we will follow the guidelines of a trusted book (that I myself bring to the class and the student doesn’t need to acquire). The classes will rely also on bilingual children’s books and audio media. This double edged approach allows for fun learning ways and cultural assimilation. In every class the student will be directly influenced by worldwide Portuguese culture ( music, history, geography). Periodically we will evaluate how the classes are evolving so as to rapidly and effectively shift focus to where it is needed.

    Do you want to speak Portuguese and get closer to the Brazilian culture in a fun and dynamic way? Well, I am a Brazilian who can show you our History, our art, customs and the great diversity of Brazilian Portuguese accents, as if you were on a virtual trip to Brazil. I have been teaching my language to people of different levels and objectives for more than two years, which gave me great experience in adapting my classes according to the needs of each student. Thus, in addition to traditional grammar, I use movies, songs, literature and other resources according to the profile of each student. In Brazil, I worked in schools and science museums, where I gained practice teaching children, youth, and adults. I also worked writing and reviewing articles for magazines, so I have great experience with the written Portuguese language. I offer online classes via webcam or face-to-face (in Granada, Spain) so that the student can choose the way that suits him best.
