How much Portuguese do you speak?

I am fairly fluent in Brazilian Portuguese, but I have not practiced speaking in a while. I have taken several classes in Brazilian Portuguese at the New School. I have spent several weeks in Brazil between 2001 and 2003 so I had a lot of time to practice back then...

Have you ever been to Brazil? If so, what is your favorite place or thing to do?

I have been to Brazil three times so far. I've been to Rio in 2001 and 2002, and to the Northeast of Brazil in 2003. I love to go to the beaches in Brazil and relax or boogie board. My favorite beaches so far are: Jacúma in João Pessoa, Boa Viagem in Recife, the sand dunes in Natal, Barra da Tijuca, Arraial do Cabo, Cabo Frio, and Buzios in Rio.


Hi - my name is Doug and I would like to join your meetup group. This group seems like a great opportunity to practice and get more exposure to one of my favorite cultures.
