The teacher

Olá, eu sou a Susana! I am your teacher. :)

You guessed right; I am a Portuguese teacher! I'm an alfacinha (born in Lisboa) with a special love for languages. I have collected a few languages throughout the years (and hundreds of books, as you can see) including English. German, Spanish, French, Mandarin and I am now dedicated to Russian. Now and then I also play around with Latin and Ancient Egyptian (you never know when that might come in handy...).

Following the true Portuguese spirit, I am curious about the world and other cultures, and I am now reaching out to teach an endangered species, European Portuguese.

I like to push my students, so you can consider me your accountability partner!

<< The top horizontal book is Os Lusíadas. Google it! :)

 

 

What students are saying


 
Olá Susana! So happy to be here. Among everything else here you’ve so carefully and thoughtfully prepared, it’s also incredible to have such great tools for EP pronunciation! After months with duolingo and its Brazilian Portuguese default, I can now go forward with confidence on how to correctly pronounce each and every syllable. Thank you for the perfectly times pauses between words, I am repeating with confidence and also cementing in my head, thanks to you : )
— Amy Thoner
[The best aspect of the course is] the very structured way to learn grammar together with the availability of the teacher. I manage to write almost all my text messages in Portuguese to my friends. They say even if I make mistakes, they understand the content.
— Vanessa (Belgium)
I have learned a lot in two months just by listening and doing recommend exercises.
— Ioan (Romenia)
Susana’s use of social media and information technology makes her classes highly interactive and entertaining in addition to being instructive. As a teacher she is always accessible, empathetic for her students needs, and motivates her students to push to the next level. Her infusion of creativity and innovation into the lessons bring the Portuguese language to life.
— Paul (USA)
WOW...I could not imagine a more thorough and organized online course! Thank you for the time and attention you have put into this to make it the best that is out there! I have looked far and wide and tried several others! Please keep up the great work, Susana!
— Robert La Coste
I absolutely love the course. Wish I knew about it when I arrived to Portugal, about a year ago!!
The most interesting aspect of the course in my view is , that even the most complex parts of the language are explained with simple examples and short explanation. That to me is the most important factor when it comes to rate a language teacher. Well done!
