Hi there! My name is Thaïs. I'm a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker from Rio de Janeiro. Besides teaching, I also work as an interpreter. As a teacher, I have worked in language schools as well, teaching both English and German to students of all levels and backgrounds. I have a BA in advertising and also studied film and acting. I would love to help you out with your Brazilian Portuguese. Send me a message, and we'll get started.
