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 a 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. In the last 4 years, I've taught Portuguese to foreigners especially English speakers; I also help in translation. 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 a culture. Although many people think that Portuguese from Brazil and Portuguese from Portugal are the same, believe me, they're different. They have different cultures, different languages, and different accent. So, if you 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 words, vocabulary, and comprehension while practising a fluent conversation using simulated dialogues in different situations (in a restaurant, a hotel, a trip, a meeting, etc.), and conversations on various topics of student interest. I ensure that all my students can grasp learning concepts and enhance their skills by providing them with fun activities with the use of props, flashcards, pictures and short videos. Até breve!!
