Hey students, and future students!
We're doing something a little different with this course, which is focused on preparing for a trip to Brazil.
Instead of following the same "learning Portuguese without translation" model, this course includes a fair amount of English to 'kick start' your understanding of some new, and in some cases tricky, Portuguese.
But that doesn't let you off the hook! The best way to get the most out of this course is for you to have taken courses #1 to #5, as a lot of the Portuguese you will see here was introduced in those courses.
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to learn Portuguese quickly, easily, and without all the complicated grammar rules?
So come on! Sit back, relax, clear your mind, and dream about your travels to Brazil with me.
This is the first class in a new series - Travel - that we are introducing. In this series you'll learn how to talk about packing and planning for a trip, getting yourself to the airport, and much more! Watch for more in this series, and more series with different themes, in the future!
I am offering this first course of many other series to come, for FREE. At mean time I will be adding more into this course. Take advantage of this offer and share it with a friend. Pretty soon when I have it all finished, it wont be free anymore :)
Portuguese Today Founder
Who this course is for:
- People that are Intersted in Learning Portuguese Fast.
Luciana Ribas, a Brazilian, studied communication at the Federal University of Paraná and specialized in methodology for teaching Portuguese to foreigners. She started teaching Portuguese as a second language in 1998.
Ms. Ribas speaks English, French, and Spanish, and lives in Denver, CO. She worked as a translator and an interpreter, and has worked in American cross-cultural companies in the US.
She has taught group and private classes for over 20 years, teaching online since 2008. She developed her own method of teaching languages using the Direct Method: concern with focusing on speech instead of translation and rule memorization. This methodology was created with the objective of breaking the archaic method of relying on grammatical explanation and constant translation. It is the method by which living languages should be taught.
With this extensive background in teaching and learning, she founded Portuguese Today in 2013.
Portuguese Today teaches Portuguese with animated, colorful, educational and fun videos, without using translation. The introduction of new vocabulary, grammar, spelling and pronunciation is presented in this course in order of importance of the language, thus facilitating the understanding and application of Portuguese. The course is divided into modules, which cover basic and advanced levels.
