The Perfect Teacher!

Fernando's method of teaching is so simple, clear, and straightforward. He makes it so easy and fun to learn, and he knows what we need as learners. The guide 'Show de Bola' is a great example of how he uses well-chosen images to further signify the meaning of each of the 100 Brazilian idioms. The free guides provide an amazing amount of valuable learning material for anyone who is on the journey to learning Brazilian Portuguese, to understand a language you must also understand the culture, and what better way to learn than with idioms! Additionally, Fernando provides expert advice on great tried and true language learning methods. I am personally and strongly recommending not just these guides, but all of his courses to my friends, family, and anyone who is out there reading this :) Obrigado Professor!

The three downloadable tools are great. I am just beginning Portuguese and find the tips, phrases, and most commonly-used word to be valuable. Thank you. I may be able to impress my tutor by using more words and phrases.

My name is Fernando and I'm a Brazilian Portuguese Teacher, Translator & Interpreter based in London, UK. I was born in Porto Alegre, the capital of the Brazil's Rio Grande do Sul State. After I graduated from university, I visited London as a tourist and liked it so much that I moved back to train to be a teacher, translator and interpreter. In my 20+ years of experience I have helped many people on their journey to learn Brazilian Portuguese. Teaching is my passion and I am proud to have taught Brazilian Portuguese to staff of British Airways, BBC, Sotheby’s, Fine Line Film Distribution, among many others.
