Testimonials

Since my classes started three months ago, I can notice that I’ve learned a lot in my Portuguese for Foreigners class. I Feel like I’m improving little by little every time. The classes help me in my daily life thanks to the method of teaching and due to a lot of patience from Claudia, my teacher.

Português é uma língua difícil, cheia de acentos e tempos verbais complicados! Mas também é uma língua alegre, muito legal e falada no principal sócio comercial da Argentina, o que representa também uma grande oportunidade de trabalho para todos nós. Espanhol e português são línguas que estão perto um da outra o que representa uma ajuda quando uma pessoa latina começa estudar português, pois rapidamente a pessoa consegue um nível aceitável para se comunicar.
