Hello, my name is Vanessa and I’m a Brazilian Portuguese teacher. I studied in the Center of letters and Arts at UNIRIO University in Rio de Janeiro and I have 7 years experience teaching Portuguese as a foreign language. I have lived in Paris for more than 7 years, so I have a lot of experience teaching Portuguese to French people, but also in Paris I have taught students from different parts of the world like Italy, England, Ireland, North America, Venezuela, Spain, Chile, Turkey, North Africa, and more. I suggest that you learn Portuguese with stimulating and contextualized activities learning to speak in the way that Brazilians speak day-to-day. In my classes, I use themes to integrate all areas of the language: conversation, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, hearing-understanding, reading and writing. Also, we can use materials such as documentaries, interviews, articles, videos and songs. We can also talk about Brazilian culture, music, food, history, theatre, cinema, politics, different regions and places in Brazil and all of things that you are interested in. So, with me your learning experience will be personalized and we can discuss relevant cultural issues, to give you opportunities to compare them with your own culture. I will help you to learn Portuguese well, to be more confident and enjoy learning and speaking Brazilian Portuguese.
