Most of my Brazilian friends left the US already and I want to start practicing my Portuguese again. I am from Bolivia and speak Spanish so sometimes I get confused! I am excited to try this group out. Thanks!

What is your exposure to Portuguese Language?

Since most of my friends left, I would say it isn't too frequent. The few of them that still live here are far away from the city, so I only use my Portuguese a couple of times over the phone, facebook and e-mails.

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


What's your skill level in conversational Portuguese?

I am pretty fluent, however I mix it with Spanish sometimes.

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

No, but I would love to.

When are you available for Meetups?

I work 9 to 5 and have Sundays off. I would love to find activities that fit my schedule.
