“If I am not for myself, who will be for me? And If I am for myself only, what am I? And if not now, when?”
Hello, my name is Liliana. As a brazilian teacher of Portuguese and teacher trainer I am very passionate of helping students develop knowledge of language and culture to fulfill their needs and achieve their learning goals. Learning a foreign language opens up new fronts of personal, social and professional development and I feel grateful being a teacher and providing these achievements to my students. I remember how hard it was for me to learn English, but can´t imagine how limited my life would be without the fluency I’ve got today. I also know some Spanish, specially the differences and similarieties between Spanish and Portuguese. I’ve been teaching Portuguese for more than twenty years now, within that, having ten years of university teaching experience. I taught students of different nationalities and backgrounds and I adapt easily to students’ preferable learning strategies, by working in an interactive personalized way. I also have experience in preparing students who want to apply for the national communicative exam of Portuguese, CELPE-Bras, offered twice a year, which requires performance in oral and written communicative tasks. Whenever I am not working, I like to do some handcraft, do gymnastics in the water and stay close to nature.
