 Great lesson. Am beginning to create Portuguese sentences without thinking them out in English first. Joana is really good at getting me to progress.

 Very useful exercises. Feeling more confident every lesson with use and formation of past tenses.

 Starting to feel the burn as my Portuguese is getting a bit more sophisticated, which is great. Also beginning to get into a head space that's Portuguese, rather than Spanish pretending to be Portuguese.

 As always, a good class. I'm feeling more confident with my reading and understanding, and need to work on being able to talk back ... instead of trying to translate my complicated answers into Portuguese, I need to simplify so that it becomes more natural and I struggle less.

 Very enjoyable lessons. I had been obliged to take a break and was very rusty, but Joana was very patient and I feel like I got back on track.

 I never thought I would be able to motivate myself to a language lesson so late in the afternoon but Joana makes them so interesting that you don't even know where the 45mins have passed. Again a great lesson!

About me - English

Hello! I'm Joana and I'm a Portuguese native speaker. I'm 25 years old and I currently live in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal.

I started by working in the hospitality industry and that gave me an excellent background in interacting with various nationalities and cultures and those were my first steps in teaching about our culture and history to foreigners.

As most people I love to travel and get to know different places, especially outside Portugal. Another thing I love is to cook and to try new recipes, especially from other countries.

I am fluent in English so if this is a language you speak it will be easy for us to interact!

Qualifications & Experience

I am a certified tutor and I have been a personal tutor over the last years which makes me perfectly comfortable with teaching and dedicating myself to a single student at a time. Most of my experience using a one-on-one method is by teaching Portuguese as Foreign Language. If you're interested in 1.5 hour class, please book two consecutive slots.

For some years already, I've been an assistant teacher at an English school, following a very customized method.

Although most of my students have been adults I also feel very comfortable teaching teenagers.

Teaching Approach

Every individual is different. And that's why I believe a customized plan is always better. Depending on your goals and on your level at the moment, together we'll create a course that suits your needs.

Whether you want to learn Portuguese because you're passionate about our country, due to professional reasons (including those words specific to your work field), or you're only looking for some transactional Portuguese, you'll learn both the Portuguese language and the Portuguese culture.

Book a trial so you can start your journey through the beautiful Portuguese language.

About me - Portuguese - Europe

Olá! Sou a Joana e sou portuguesa. Tenho 25 anos e neste momento vivo nas Caldas da Rainha, em Portugal.

Comecei por trabalhar na indústria hoteleira e isso deu-me experiência na interação com diversas nacionalidades e culturas e esses foram os meus primeiros passos a ensinar sobre a nossa cultura e história a estrangeiros.

Tal como a maioria das pessoas, adoro viajar e conhecer sítios diferentes, especialmente fora de Portugal. Outra coisa que adoro fazer é cozinhar e experimentar novas receitas, sobretudo de outros países.

Sou fluente em inglês por isso, se falas esta língua, vai ser fácil comunicarmos!

Qualifications & Experience

Sou formadora certificada e fui tutora ao longo dos últimos anos, o que me deixa perfeitamente à vontade com ensinar e dedicar-me a um aluno de cada vez. A área onde tenho mais experiência é Português para Estrangeiros.

Trabalho à vários anos como formadora assistente numa escola de inglês, seguindo um método muito personalizado.

Apesar da maioria dos meus alunos serem adultos, também me sinto muito à vontade a ensinar adolescentes.

Teaching Approach

Todos os alunos são diferentes e é por isso que acredito que um plano personalizado é o melhor. Dependendo dos teus objetivos e do teu nível neste momento, vamos criar um curso que se adapta às tuas necessidades. Se estás interessado em aulas de uma hora e meia, por favor marca duas aulas consecutivas.

Quer queiras aprender português porque és apaixonado pelo nosso país ou por motivos profissionais (incluindo aquelas palavras específicas da tua área de trabalho), vais aprender a língua e a cultura portuguesas.
