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.
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.
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.
UM VERDADEIRO APRENDIZADO!! REAL LEARNING TAKES PLACE HERE!! A relaxed, fun way to practice Portuguese, learn about Brazil, make friends, enjoy good food or a drink. All levels and ages welcome. No charge.
