 Carla is great! She has a personalized plan for beginners that is thoughtful and organized. I appreciate that she has lots of prepared materials and a plan. I'm excited to learn from a PT native that is also a former educator in the business space - a great fit for me. Thanks, Carla!

 I've just had my first lesson with Carla and it was such an amazing experience! I've been learning Portuguese on my own with an online language program, so we used this time to review the things I've learned and Carla helped me with pronunciation of words that have given me trouble. She's in the process of developing a personalized plan for me using a variety of learning tools so that we can figure out what will work best. Working with Carla was so easy and relaxed. Her style is really easygoing and supportive. I look forward to continuing my studies with her to further my Portuguese learning goals.

About me - English

Hello! My name is Carla Caria, I am 50 years old and i currently live in Santarém, Portugal.

I have had a long professional career in national and international business environments. I have been a teacher in technical areas for 11 years in a professional school and in university.

Regarding the teaching of Portuguese, I prefer to see myself as a guide of knowledge, sharing the Portuguese language, culture, its uses and customs, geography, gastronomy and even its peculiarities in an unconventional but interactive way. In fact, I have a huge passion for intercultural communication, because I love to travel and get to know other cultures. Cultural sharing among people provide us with an impressive inner wealth, grants us tolerance and respect.

Qualifications & Experience

I have a Bachelor in Languages and Secretarial subjects (English and German), a Degree in Business Assistance, a Post-Graduation in Marketing, a Master's degree in Administration Management and I am currently studying for a PhD in Communication (specifically in intercultural communication).

Since 1992, throughout my professional career I have played several roles in national and international business environment. In the past, I have translated documents (English-Portuguese-English) and followed closely the teaching of Portuguese for foreigners.

The last 11 years have been dedicated to education: I was coordinator of a professional course and guided numerous academic projects. I was a teacher in a professional school and university education in the areas of business and intercultural communication, secretarial subjects, public relations, protocol and etiquette, organization of events, customer service and archive. I am also a certified trainer.

Teaching Approach

I prefer a personalized approach because each person has different needs in terms of Portuguese language with their own learning rhythms and methods. I consider myself a knowledge advisor and not a teacher transmitting content, so I privilege interaction and conversation. Learning Portuguese is not easy, but it can be fun.

- I help the foreign entrepreneur who needs to understand the "brain" of the Portuguese entrepreneur,

- I help the family that comes to live in Portugal and intends to feel part of the Portuguese community,

- I guide young people who need support in secondary or higher school and seek integration in Portuguese youth,

- I present the Portuguese words and the culture to the children in a funny way.

About me - Portuguese - Europe

Olá! O meu nome é Carla Caria, tenho 50 anos e vivo atualmente em Santarém, Portugal.

Possuo uma longa carreira profissional em ambiente empresarial nacional e internacional.

Sou professora de áreas técnicas há 11 anos numa escola profissional e no ensino universitário.

Ao nível do ensino do português, quero assumir-me como uma orientadora de saberes, partilhando a Língua portuguesa, a cultura, os seus usos e costumes, a geografia, a gastronomia e até as suas peculiaridades de uma forma não convencional mas interativa. Na verdade, tenho uma paixão enorme pela comunicação intercultural, pois adoro viajar e conhecer outras culturas. A partilha cultural entre os povos proporciona-nos uma riqueza interior impressionante, concede-nos tolerância e respeito pelo ser humano.

Qualifications & Experience

- Tenho um Bacharelato em Línguas e Secretariado (Inglês e Alemão), uma Licenciatura em Assessoria de Gestão, uma Pós-Graduação em Marketing, um Mestrado em Assessoria de Administração e frequento atualmente o Doutoramento em Comunicação (especificamente em comunicação intercultural).

- Desde 1992, ao longo da minha carreira profissional desempenhei diversas funções em ambiente empresarial internacional.

- No passado, fiz tradução de documentos (inglês-português) e acompanhei de perto o ensino do português para estrangeiros.

- Os últimos 11 anos foram dedicados à educação: fui coordenadora de um curso profissional e orientei inumeros projetos académicos. Fui docente numa escola profissional e no ensino universitário nas áreas de comunicação empresarial e intercultural, assessoria e secretariado, relações públicas, protocolo e etiqueta, organização de eventos, atendimento e arquivo.

- Sou igualmente formadora certificada.

Teaching Approach

Prefiro uma abordagem personalizada porque cada pessoa tem necessidades diferentes em termos de português com ritmos e métodos próprios de aprendizagem.

Considero-me uma orientadora de saberes e não uma professora transmissora de conteúdos, pelo que privilegio a interação, conversação.

Aprender português não é fácil, mas pode ser divertido.

- Auxilio o empresário estrangeiro que necessite de perceber o “cérebro” do empresário português,

- Ajudo a família que vem viver para Portugal e pretende sentir-se parte da comunidade portuguesa,

- Oriento os jovens que precisam de apoio na escola secundária ou superior e querem relacionar-se com os jovens portugueses,

- Dou a conhecer às crianças as palavras portuguesas e a cultura do país.
