WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
I feel that of all the online programs I have researched, speaking Brazilian School is by far the most professional and content dense. It is almost at the level of taking a college course! I love how it includes speaking, hearing, reading and writing. The weekly Utube and Q&As added an added dimension of reinforcement to the learning experience too. In addition, the warmth and friendliness that I am so accustomed to with Brasilian's flows through the classes and the email communication from you.

Meet the Team
Virginia Langhammer - Founder and Director
Teaching Portuguese as a second language has become my passion since I moved to NYC in 2013.
I created this online school in 2018, and since then I’ve been teaching students from all over the world, helping them with their personal and professional goals.
I've been always passionate about languages. I speak Portuguese, English, French, and Spanish. My knowledge of foreign language learning gives me the best tools to help my students in their learning journey.
Now, I’m happy to introduce you to my team. In addition to years of experience as Portuguese teachers, they have also been trained by me to be in tune with Speaking Brazilian School style and standards.
I'm sure you'll learn a lot from them!
