About meOlá! My name is Sónia, I'm a native Portuguese from Portugal and I live in Lisbon. I've studied English at the British Council in Lisbon and I have the TESOL certificate. I have been teaching for over 3 years and I have been involved in a volunteer educational work for more than 20 years for Portuguese speakers and the last 4 years also for foreigner’s English speakers, helping in translation also. I love to travel and I have made friends around the world, and I believe that learning a language is the best way to learn and understand about a culture, though many people think that Portuguese from Brazil and Portuguese from Portugal is the same, believe me, it's totally different and so its cultures, different culture, different language, and different accent. So if you really want to learn the Language of Luis de Camões and Vasco da Gama, and understand the real meaning of the word "Saudade" think no more! My classes are focused on the correct pronunciation of the words, vocabulary, and comprehension while practicing a fluent conversation using simulated dialogues in different situations (in a restaurant, a hotel, a trip, a meeting, etc.), conversations on various topics of student interest. I ensure that all my students are able to grasp learning concepts and enhance their personal skills by providing them fun activities with the use of props, flashcards, pictures and short videos. It is my goal to combine my experience, with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, mindful teacher in a fun and relax environment. Até breve!!
