The 'buzz' of music, family, friends - feeling connected to a larger community.
Lived in Agudos, SP and traveled a lot around the whole beautiful and amazing country. I also lived in Rio in 2003.
Pretty darn fluent.
I lived in Sao Paulo as a teenager (como intercambista) in[masked] and lately have been feeling like I am losing touch with Brasilian friends and culture. I am looking to meet people and find out what Brasilian stuff is going on around New York!
Because it is SO helpful to have conversations in Portuguese when you are trying to learn the language! Given a context, such as a film, the language being specific to the topic of the film keeps it interesting and fun - great!
