Why do you want to learn Portuguese?

At first I didn't. But then new cousins came into my life, and they're from Rio, and they speak Portuguese. Now I want to live and work there.

Have you stayed in Brazil?

I stayed in Rio w/my new family for 10 days earlier this year, Recreio de Bandeirantes. Got to ride in the front seat while they drove around - had my eyes closed a lot! Uau! Want to go back!

How is your level in Portuguese Language?

Well, I've watched all of the episodes of Avenida Brasil, am using Rosetta Stone to learn, and frequently misspeak when I talk to my new cousins! I'd say my level is probably advanced beginner, being able to understand more then I can actually put into sentences. But that doesn't stop me from trying!!

Where do you live in Illinois?

Chicago - south side!


Hi, originally from Kansas, living in Chicago. Wanna move to Rio ... yesterday!
