Why do you want to converse in Portuguese?

To improve my Portuguese skills, since I spend a lot of time in Brazil. Also to meet Brazilians and learn more about their culture and way of life.

Are you a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or native speaker of Portuguese?

Somewhere between intermediate and advanced--still get mixed up on a few verbs, and my Spanish often makes me speak Portunhol. I watch movies and read books, newspapers and magazines in Portuguese, which help a lot.

Have you ever travelled to a Portuguese-speaking country?

Many trips to Brazil so far (another coming soon!). I like the Zona Sul of Rio. Also four days in Lisbon many moons ago.


Semi-retired language teacher (Spanish, English, Portuguese, Italian). I've also worked in import-export between the U.S. and Latin America.
