Welcome to this fun learning journey!
Who I am...
I am Valéria: a language enthusiast!
I love being around people from other cultures and traveling as much as I can. I am Brazilian, but I am currently living in Portugal. The USA is a country that I love so much, and due to that, I decided to be an Au Pair and spend a year there, getting to know the American culture and practicing English as well. I took care of 5 lovely kids and taught them about my culture. They learned some Portuguese too! It was a lot of fun!
I am also a Certified Portuguese Teacher and I have a degree in languages (Portuguese and English), and a License in Pedagogy.
Before I became a Portuguese for Foreigners Teacher, I had been working as an English tutor, for languages schools, and as a translator, for translation companies, where I could translate technical manuals, advertisement campaigns, and medicine instructions. During my classes, I use the communicative approach method, which aims at helping students communicate using real data in order to develop their natural strategies for language learning, enabling them to speak with confidence!
In my opinion, what helps people communicate fluently is making them understand that excellence is what matters!
Excellence in speaking a new language happens when a person is able to understand others and be understood by them. When this objective is clear, people can communicate fearlessly! This is my belief!
