The classes are intended to foreigners of any nationality, with professional or personal goals. The methodology is developed in two main axes, mixing classes at the discretion of the student:
1) classes focused on reading, writing, interpretation and production (for students who will undergo tests or who intend to work in Brazil), and
2) interactive lessons with intensive conversation and experimentation in real situations (for students who will work in Brazil and need to quickly understand how the culture and behavior of Brazilians work) classes can take place in Portuguese or English, in person or by webcam.
The current format of classes has been applied in person in almost 50 students for more than three years. I helped form many foreign expatriates, who are brought to Brazil by their companies to work. I also helped many of them to get the Celpe-Bras certification, in addition to proficiency acquisition to read and write on professional level in Portuguese.
I am a Psychologist, with additional training (Masters and PhD) in Linguistics from the Federal University of Parana. Since 2007 I work with study groups at UFPR, researching the human linguistic behavior. A few years ago I started teaching Organizational Culture, Brazilian Portuguese Language and Culture for foreigners, developing more efficient forms of language acquisition that are not based on textbooks.
