What is your exposure to Portuguese Language?

Talking to family over the phone, and with my meetup buddies over email and in our events

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

born and raised in brazil

What's your skill level in conversational Portuguese?

Native Speaker

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

I'm not your "stereotypical" Brazilian. I don't do any of the above, but I love the beach, bossa nova, MPB, pão de queijo, coxinha, literatura brasileira, etc

When are you available for Meetups?

Mostly weekends, but I could occasionally meet during the week too, in the evening.


I'm Brazilian and have been living in Chicago for a few years now. I'm a Ph.D. student in linguistics at NU, and also a translator/interpret­er/teacher of Port/Eng.. I'm looking forward to meeting you all to chat about Brazil, Portuguese, etc
