What is your exposure to Portuguese Language?

Several trips to Rio to visit Brazilian friends. Self-study and a night class a for a year a few years back. Now, determined to make some real progress, by joining groups and taking on more study.

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

Brazil (Rio and surrounds), 3 times in 1990's and in February 2012. Next trip: January 2013, to Florianopolis and Rio.

What's your skill level in conversational Portuguese?

"Advanced" beginner ? hope to change that relatively quickly in the next year or so, love my fluency in French and would be great to get there with a language that I'm pretty sure I love even more :)

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

No, not for now. But who knows? Am picking up the guitar again, we'll see where that takes me in music!

When are you available for Meetups?

Weekends. Occasional work week evenings.
