"Em dois anos não só aprendi português com o Eli, mas ganhei um amigo também."

Quando me mudei para o Brasil precisava muito aprender português rápido para poder viver aqui. Em dois anos não só aprendi português com o Eli, mas ganhei um amigo também.

"Acho que ele é um ótimo professor e sim ele não tivesse aprendido tanto o idioma."

Eu tenho mais de dois anos estudando o português com Eli. Acho que ele é um ótimo professor e sim ele não tivesse aprendido tanto o idioma. A gente vai continuar tendo aulas, para poder melhorar esses pequenos detalhes que todos precisamos para falar melhor. Obrigado Eli, sempre curto muito de nossas aulas. Até nossa próxima aula. Tchau

"Agora posso falar português também a nível profissional. Recebi muitos elogios tanto de portugueses como do brasileiros."

Comecei minhas aulas com Eli há menos de 1 ano, agora posso falar português também a nível profissional. Recebi muitos elogios tanto de portugueses como do brasileiros. Eli é um super conhecedor e sempre tenta manter a aula interessante. Ele é um dos melhores professores que já tive (e eu falo 7 idiomas, então tentei muitos)

Quando eu comecei a ter aulas com você eu fiquei nervosa, mas depois da primeira aula, eu adorei.

Oi Eli, quando eu comecei a ter aulas com você eu fiquei nervosa, mas depois da primeira aula, eu adorei. A primeira impressão que eu tive foi que você e muito profissional e que sabe mexer com o computador, o que é muito importante quando a aula é online. Sua maneira de ensinar é muito prática e simples e muito relaxada e faz que o aluno pratique português. Eu gosto que você faz anotações do que se falou na aula, para a gente verificar depois. Quando eu cometo erros, você me corrige sem me fazer sentir mal. (Eu agradeço muito) Você diz: "nós dizemos de..." e escreve a palavra correta; quando eu falo alguma coisa correta, você faz uma careta de "muito bem" e isso me faz sentir con vontade de seguir tentando. Você é uma pessoa muito legal e amável, e eu acho que você é um excelente Professor.

"The gift of being able to communicate in the native language of my then-boyfriend, now husband, is one that I cannot ever repay!"

Eli has been my Portuguese teacher for 5 years. I am not a stranger to language learning as I have previously studied 3 other languages, earning a Bachelors Degree in French in 1997. Eli is, by far, the most engaging, language teacher I have ever had. I progressed more rapidly in our one on one video lessons than I have ever progressed in language learning before. The gift of being able to communicate in the native language of my then-boyfriend, now husband, is one that I cannot ever repay! My relationships with my Brazilian family are deeper than they ever could have been had I never worked with Eli. I continue to use his videos and podcasts to improve my skills and will engage in more private lessons with him to prepare for the CELPE-BRAS one day. Muito obrigada, meu professor pelo tudo. Você é top!

"Eli not only enriched my Portuguese, but I am forever in debt to him for motivating me to study Chinese."

Eliaquim is one of the most magnificant professionals and individuals I have met in my life. He is an outstanding wordsmith and exceptionally skilled polyglot. He is very focused in his teaching methodology. He is a superb listener during language sessions. He presents questions, listens and responds with more questions and deeper drill-down into vocabulary, and the deep and diverse expanse of meaning that derives from what seemed like a simple conversation. Eli not only enriched my Portuguese, but I am forever in debt to him for motivating me to study Chinese. Could I possibly recommend him more highly?

Here’s what some of our members say about their experience with the Continuing Education Program


Eli makes learning Portuguese more than just about the language itself.

Eli makes things fun, but at the same time, you learn an extraordinary amount of culture along with grammar and vocabulary. Eli is always very generous with his time. Every reading assignment has taught me more about the history of Brazil. It was amazing to learn through the lives of the people the experiences the country went through from the imperial era to its independence. Everything Eli has put in the Book Club has improved my Portuguese and my understanding of Brazilian history. [I] am able to practice reading the material out loud and then listening to it by a native speaker. It is helpful to me to improve my listening as well as my speaking abilities. The guides always are full of definitions that put the words in different contexts to help me better understand them and see ways to incorporate them into my use of the language. [I recommend the Program to] anyone who wants to improve their Portuguese. First, his school is very reasonably priced. Second, there is a great quantity of quality content. Thrid, Eli makes learning Portuguese more than just about the language itself. You'll learn to love Brazil and its people.


G Sellers, Taylorsville

I feel so much confidence to speak

I've learn a lot of vocabulary and idioms. [Being part of the school has helped me] to speak without thinking. The words just came to me without much thinking. And I feel so much confidence to speak. [I] have learned a lot of grammar. [I recommend joining the Program for] EVERYBODY who really wants to speak portuguese in a natural way.
