Hello Everyone! Welcome to fun and enjoyable Portuguese lessons online!
My name is Paula and I am a qualified Portuguese teacher. I studied to be a Waldorf primary teacher and also completed the TEFL, which additionally allows me to teach English.I also have a bachelor's degree is in Cinema and Communication.
I am half Brazilian/half Portuguese and I also teach both Brazilian and European Portuguese, depending on your preference. I am fascinated by all the varieties of my language and the small distinctions between them. It's so beautiful!
I first meet students for a trial lesson, to get to know their objectives, their interests, and what kind of learners they are. Each person is different and I try to adapt to every student. In my classes, I use a communicative approach and we start talking from day 1. My goal is to make students feel comfortable with the language and not be afraid to make mistakes. I work on the development of speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills, as well as proper pronunciation and vocabulary enhancement.
In my classes, you will learn about Brazilian or Portuguese culture, through music, texts, videos, quizzes, and pictures. Classes for children are full of games and arts!
If you feel that this is a good fit for you, come try a lesson with me! Hope to see you soon,
