I offer classes for individuals, couples or groups of three, for any level of Brazilian Portuguese. Because each student has a different way of learning, I adapt my teaching to the student’s needs. Classes are structured around everyday Portuguese usage (drawing from the popular media).

Also my classes have an informal atmosphere in which I keep the student engaged at every moment, writing, speaking and thinking in Portuguese.

Survival. For travelers or business people with limited time  who would like to learn the basics of the language online. It’s the soft landing course.

Beginners. For those who have no or only a little knowledge of the language. Students will learn basic grammar, conversation and pronunciation, emphasizing a communicative approach.

Intermediate. Further work on grammar and skills in reading, speaking, listening and writing.

Advanced. Essay writing, complex listening and reading and conversation strategies.
