I don't follow specific materials, and I don't use a single method. I base my classes on each student's needs, approaching each topic as necessary. Based on your level, I'll adapt our classes so you can make the best of them.
The classes will be customized according to the needs of each student. At first I will analyze the student's portuguese level and his objective studying this language. After that, I will elaborate the classes according to your needs.
First, I will introduce you to simple concepts and structure, including the concept of "communicative competence" and its components; teaching contexts; current research on teaching second language skills; and techniques.
Grammar, frequent conversational classes, frequent exercises, answers to all student questions, lessons on various topics (including topics of your choice, to improve your course or area of work for example) and everything the student needs to learn to speak fluently
I understand each person is a different individual who has different perceptions from the same subject – so a unique learning process. Also, I guarantee my student will have lessons directed to his/her reality and demands, stimulating my student respecting his/ her responds.
My teaching method is simple. I am here to talk to you and teach you the way that Brazilian people talk to each other.
I see each student as unique, so I develop a specific lesson plan based on their specific goals. I try to make the lessons as fun and engaging as possible, so that students feel motivated to continue. I’ve tutored students that are children of Portuguese immigrants and want to learn their ancestors’ language. Others that want to retire, do business or just go on vacation to Portugal.
My methodology is based on real situations and daily routine lived in Brazil. Exercises with examples of common use and conversation training.
Our lessons will be based on your goals, feel free to choose the better way for you!
My teaching method is Active Learning. I apply visual, audio and kinesthesic in my classes. I use PPT presentations and flash cards as well writing and listening.
my teaching methodology is to make you learn Portuguese speaking, just as a child learns your language.
I have a bachelor degree in Physical Therapy and I have been teaching people who has learning difficulties for more than 10 years. I use the ESL techniques and use exemples and repetition to catch the student's attention. Depending on the age, I use different resources to teacher portuguese. With children I use a lot of props and with adults I talk about daily life and actualities.
Upon assessing the student’s needs and level, I prepare a class that combines grammatical rules (with exercises to develop skills) and topic conversations (to correct grammar and improve pronunciation) I also apply reading and comprehension of songs, topic texts and interviews.
TO TEACH VOCABULARY: Read together list of related words (so the student can associate words used in a same context) while showing pictures representing each word (so the student can associate the word with the image). Example: list of animals found in the Amazon; besides the animal's names, this can be used to learn colors and body parts by using the animal's pictures.
