- Family life;
- Describing people and things;
- Describing habits and routines;
- Travel and leisure activities;
- Making suggestions and invitations;
- Food and restaurant;
- Shopping and services;
- Talking about the past and future;
- Work and jobs;
- Getting around the city;
- At the doctor’s.
You will learn my language through situations that you would come across living in Brazil.
That’s what I mean by real-life Portuguese!
IT’S PORTUGUESE ON THE GO
My course allows you to learn at your own pace, anywhere and on any device.
It’s perfect for those who have a busy schedule.
All content is in our Virtual Classroom: videos, audios, exercises, PDFs. The lessons follow a predetermined order and grammar is taught gradually, in a simple and easy way.
All you need to do is to follow my recommendations and the order in which the lessons are presented.
VIDEOS TO IMPROVE YOUR LISTENING
Listening is the skill you need to focus the most when you are learning a language.
And it makes sense, right? After all, how will you interact with natives if you don’t understand what they say?
And when it comes to Brazilian Portuguese, things can be even more challenging… Brazil has several accents.
Don’t worry, when you conclude the course, you will become familiar with the 3 most common accents in Brazil.
STEP-BY-STEP PRONUNCIATION LESSONS
Correct and clear pronunciation is as important as listening and conversational skills. Improper pronunciation can lead to misunderstanding and ineffective communication.
That’s why you will have advanced pronunciation lessons throughout the course.
Prepare yourself for the compliments, because you will take your pronunciation to a high level!
If you enjoyed my pronunciation series on YouTube, you’ll love Portuguese in Record Time!
Portuguese Pronunciation Guide
Ok, I trained your ears, but… How do I know if what I say will be understood by a native? How do I know if I am pronouncing the words correctly?
It’s easy! You’ll record your voice and I’ll give you personalized feedback on your pronunciation.
You will be able to visualize your progress and keep track of your performance at all stages of the course.
Imagine having this guidance in every single lesson, this is just fantastic!
Memorizing conjugations (see more here) is one of the greatest stumbling blocks for Portuguese learners!
Verbs in Portuguese are conjugated by person and number, meaning that you’ll have to memorize 4 different endings for each verb that you learn.
If that’s not enough, the conjugations can be different depending on whether the verb ends in -ar, -er, -or -ir.
With the smart flashcards I created for you, vocabulary and verb conjugations will be on the tip of your tongue.
ONE-ON-ONE CONVERSATION CLASSES
In classroom settings pressured by peers, some students fear answering questions, making mistakes or taking risks.
Besides being more productive, one-on-one classes are less stressful than group teaching, because there are no wrong answers or silly questions and students don’t have to fear being themselves.
You’ll feel more comfortable expressing yourself.
In addition to all the resources above, you can clarify your doubts with me at any time, in each lesson there is a comments section for you to interact with me.
I’m sure this is the first time you’ll have a teacher at your disposal 24/7!
