Portuguese teacher with more than 30 years of experience.

Teaching is what I do best because it’s not a job but a passion

Hi, my name is Cristina and I want to help you improve your Portuguese.

I teach Portuguese online to intermediate and advanced learners with a special focus on listening and speaking. I focus on listening and speaking so that you can communicate more fluently with the Portuguese people around you.

I also want to help learners understand the European Portuguese culture as well as guide them through the hurdles of language learning so I write a blog with learning tips and strategies and a podcast where I describe the usage of certain idioms as well as explain the meaning of provers and sayings.

Since 2017 I have been offering preparation courses for the CAPLE exams. I’ve helped several people, mostly native Spanish speakers, pass the Official Certificate of Portuguese as a Foreign Language. All the people I’ve helped prepare have succeeded in the exam. You can read what some of them said in their testimonials.
