What is your exposure to Portuguese Language?

I took a Brazilian cinema class. The movies were great but the subtitles were messed up. Using my knowledge of spanish grammar & vocabulary, I listened very carefully, and eventually picked up alot of vocabulary.

Have you ever been to a Portuguese-speaking country? Where and when?

Never been.

What's your skill level in conversational Portuguese?

I have no one to practice with so I'm not very conversational... but, if I had the opportunity, I would most likely be able to hold a conversation.

Do you play capoeira, dance samba/pagode/forró/baile funk/etc, or otherwise do Brazil-related activities on a regular basis?

I don't play it on a regular basis, however, I know and have participated with a musician who is well versed in Brazilian Candomble Drumming, as well as Samba drumming.

When are you available for Meetups?

Most Thursday, Friday nights. Flexible times in the weekend.


Ola! Como vai? I speak Spanish, English fluently (also, Japanese semi-fluently) and am looking too learn Portuguese.
