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.
Brazil (Rio and surrounds), 3 times in 1990's and in February 2012. Next trip: January 2013, to Florianopolis and Rio.
"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 :)
No, not for now. But who knows? Am picking up the guitar again, we'll see where that takes me in music!
Weekends. Occasional work week evenings.
Fluent in French, working on Portuguese. Have had Brazilian friends over the years. Studying at Brazil in Chicago and heading to Florianopolis for 2 weeks family/school immersion this winter. Finance career, love the outdoors, music, new friends.
