What is your exposure to Portuguese Language?

I have lived in São Paulo and Salvador and spent a lot of time in Rio and rural Minas Gerais. I teach private Portuguese lessons here in Chicago and on Skype and am continually improving my own command of the language!

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

First visited Brazil in 2005, lived there in 2006 and have returned every year since.

What's your skill level in conversational Portuguese?


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

I watch Brazilian movies and listen to music. I'm not such a great athlete or dancer but love to watch capoeira and samba.

When are you available for Meetups?

Pretty much all the time, or at least with a flexible schedule.


Oi gente, adoro conversar em Português e ensinar aos outros também. Hello everyone, I love to converse in Portuguese and teach others too!
