What is your exposure to Portuguese Language?

I have taught myself some Brazilian Portuguese from a few different tools/resources, plus a background in Spanish (BA)

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

I have never been to a Portuguese speaking country, though some day I would love to travel to Brazil to train in my sport, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, where it was born.

What's your skill level in conversational Portuguese?

I can hold a decent conversation in Portuguese, though it may be a little more portunhol than I would like to imagine ha.

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

I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at least 3 days a week (usually more).

When are you available for Meetups?

I have a pretty hectic schedule and I'm applying for a new job right now, which will undoubtedly change my availability. That said, I'm usually free on sundays, and right now I have a part time job that I usually do from around 8-3 monday wednesday and saturday. At nights I train BJJ, friday I train Judo.


I'm an avid language learner who just found meetup, and I'm having a ball finding all these language groups!
