Advantages of learning a new language:
Learning a new language is fun. But what I’m (and you should be) after is not bilingualism but instead biculturalism. We think by aid of words. Therefore language shapes thought. In part this is because working in a second language slows down the thinking. No wonder people feel different when speaking a second language. And no wonder they feel looser, more spontaneous, perhaps more assertive or funnier or blunter.
Studies show that being able to speak another language is generally linked to a more flexible brain, developing the brain’s ability to plan and prioritize. Also it betters our defenses against dementia in old age.
Advantages of learning Portuguese:
• 250 million native speakers worldwide
• 5th most common language in the world
• It has been an official language since 1297
• It’s usage is spread over 4 continents (Europe, South America, Africa, Asia)
A previously thought upon plan will be presented. It consists roughly on periodic written assessments, frequent homework assignments and off class hours listening exercises. A book specifically for foreigners to learn Portuguese will be used as a guide. We will follow it thoroughly and it's the student's decision to buy it or not.
Focus on diverse subjects is possible, for example, grammar, diction, reading comprehension, written production, conversational skills.
In every class the student will be directly influenced by worldwide Portuguese culture ( music, history, geography).
Once in a while I’ll invite Portuguese native speakers to our classes for the student to get in touch with the different accents from around the world.
I aim to give you private lessons but I also accept groups of students with no more than 2 persons per class.
Some years ago my family and I accommodated an Italian girl for the whole academic year. It was with much surprise that I saw her leave my country speaking Portuguese fluently. During that time I found I love to teach people how to talk and understand Portuguese.
