“Joy is wiser than wisdom!”
When I was a child, a French family moved in next door. I became friends with them and started to learn words and even children’s songs in French. I think that’s when my love for foreign languages began. As a teenager, I wanted to learn English to sing along with the Beatles. Later on, I took German classes to better understand my German boyfriend. I love to travel to foreign countries and not depend on guides or Google Translate to communicate with people there. That’s what speaking a foreign language means to me: the possibility for direct interaction with people everywhere, different cultures and ways of living.
I applied my knowledge of foreign languages in the Corporate World for many years, then, in 2013, I decided I wanted to do something more creative and meaningful to me, so I started teaching Portuguese to executives from multinational companies in São Paulo (including business language) and their wives. I love to help them to “discover” the beauty and richness of our language and be able to communicate with and better understand the Brazilians. I’m also happy to assist them with any practical issues or questions regarding their daily lives, so their stay in Brazil can be as comfortable and pleasant as possible. A few years ago, I started online teaching and I find it fascinating to be able to interact with students everywhere in the world. Aside from English and Portuguese I also speak German, Spanish and some French.
Besides travelling, I love music, reading and learning new things.
