Meet Your Ally in Learning Brazilian Portuguese
Oi! I’m Eli, from Brazil. Languages in general – and Portuguese in particular – have been my passion since an early age.
You also should know about me one thing…
I believe wholeheartedly in learning for and through communication.
Languages are tools, and Portuguese isn’t different.
And as a learner, you’ll want to speak with people.
The ability to talk to your friends and loved ones in their language is priceless. It helps you bond together, and I can show you how you can do that quickly and efficiently.
If you are just getting started, here are some posts I urge you to check:

Here’s a little more about me:
As a language learner, with over two decades of experience, I’ve always searched for the best ways to learn languages quickly and effectively. I’ve managed to do so a couple of times, and it made me greatly happy.
As a teacher, I started my career in 2013 in one of the State Universities in Brazil (UECE), moving on to have stints at reputable language learning centers (UFC, IsF, Casa de Cultura Britânica).
"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!
I am also a translator and have tutored personally quite a few students of Portuguese, English, Mandarin Chinese, and Translation.
Everything in my life gravitates toward languages. That’s why I’ve devoted myself – and this website – to language learning.
If you want to learn Brazilian Portuguese to talk with friends or family… or if you want to use your Spanish to help you out in this task…
I’ll show you how!
And if you have specific questions – any – just send me a message below.
I’m always glad to help.
