As the owner of a service company and a teacher for more than 25 years, I've become a specialist in teaching portuguese for foreign people.
My classes are dynamic, individual and participatory. They are allied to successful didactic causing and effective results. They are taught at student's company, at the Consulate, at his home, or even at my place, according to his preference and availability.
The classes are based on a book which has different kinds of dialogs, from simple to complex ones, with lots of illustrations in order to avoid translation. Grammar is taught with these dialogs, never isolate. From a certain number of classes on, I ask the student to read something of his interest on newspapers, magazines, internet, etc, and we talk about it later. After that, he starts listening to news on radio, music, everything he considers interesting.
In general, in 5 or 6 months, the foreigner student can already understand and be understood in portuguese.
Besides portuguese classes, I also help my studentes on their city adaptation, suggesting restaurants, places for the best shopping, tourist informations, hairdressers, giving some "tips" of everything they may need to live here. And I don't charge anything for these; it's just a personal assistence, always essential.
The classes are scheduled and paid at the begining of each month and, if previously canceled, they can be rescheduled according to the student's and my availability.
I'm also available to present myself personally, when I'll show you some of my teaching methods.
