Hello, my name is Ariane and I have been teaching for 5 years. I live in the United States and currently, I am a Ph.D. student. I can help you whether you are an advanced student or you just started learning.
I will work with YOUR specific goals. Do you need a "basic survival Portuguese kit" for a short trip? Don't worry, I can help you! Do you want to improve your writing /speaking skills and become fluent in Portuguese? I can also help you. Maybe you have a business with a company where people speak Portuguese, and you need to learn more specific terms (like business or scientific ones). Hey, I got you!
I believe that traditional schools do not teach what you need to know to have a real conversation with a native (trust me, I studied English for 15 years and when I moved to the USA it was like I started 6 months ago). So, how are we going to work? In our first lecture, we will discuss YOUR GOALS and the way YOU feel more comfortable learning a new language. This way you can make a true progression. According to your goals, I will send you scientific papers, homework, videos of comedies, soap operas or a few minutes of movies in Portuguese that we will discuss during our class. They will be sometimes linked to a specific grammatical topic. We will talk about what did you learn and what do you need to improve.
I like to learn new languages and cultures and I will definitely love to teach you Portuguese and interesting facts about Brazil and my native language. I am looking forward to seeing you in our Trial Lesson!
