I do believe that the best way to learn a new language is not by books or memorizing vocabulary...but by really experience moments that you can speak such as order food, buy tickets, support your soccer team and so on. By learning English I realized that words and expressions stuck in my mind when I could use them in my routine. Therefore, this is the way I want you to learn Portuguese with me.
I always want my students to learn with passion and at their own pace. Learning a language is supposed to be a joyful experience. To do so, I often encourage learning through music, culture, movies and of course books! My methodology depends on my student's age, preferences and level of oral and written comprehension.
I am really adaptable, so If you share the passing for music and kitchen with me, we can go from there. You get not only to learn the language, but also to know about the Portuguese culture. If not, tell me about your passion, so I can use it as a starting point.
I believe in pratical learning, so my approach is reading, writing and talking as much as we can. Take a walk in Melbourne streets, supermarkets, parks to see and learn thinhs in their real environmental.
First I like to assess the students knowledge by asking them for a small demonstration. If they're more interested in written communication I'll ask them to write one or two small essays, stories of life and stuff like that. If they're more interested in verbal, I'll try talking to them a little and then see what their situation is.
Dynamic and simple. The more we talk... better. I teach the fundamental of grammar and after that is all about talk and talk.
I am happy to teach to an individual that needs my assistance or group classes. I like to help students out based on what area of the language they would like to learn or improve in.
Conversational classes where you will learn the basics (pronouns, grammar, verbs, vocabulary) and the possibility of focusing on particular areas of interest such as business or tourism. Classes can be booked in 1 hour or 2 hour sessions, online or face-to-face meetings in public places such as cafes or libraries.
I used technology to help us to interact better. Feedback is very important, communication is core, simplification is key. I like to use life experiences, practical examples and comparisons. Knowledge has different types and maturity levels, if we want to master any topic, we need to clearly understand our steps to achieve comprehension.
My teaching method is to explain step-by-step what the student needs to learn and make sure through questions that he/she understands what I mean. Also, I am very friendly while teaching so everyone is always comfortable in my classes.
I strive to deliver language classes in a dynamic, topical, relevant and lively way to immerse my students in a new language. My teaching is focused on the student’s requirements respecting each different learner’s needs and abilities and continually empowering their achievements.
Well, I would not attempt to teach a child to learn Portuguese as I’m not a formal teacher. My target market are adults. With that in mind I believe the best way to learn another language really is practising speaking, listening and vocabulary.
