Speaking Brazilian

Join me, teacher Virginia Langhammer, in this mini-course in Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation.

 

No Strings Attached: It's completely free!

Teaching Portuguese as a second language has become my passion since I moved to NYC in 2013. I taught at the best language schools in New York for four years, where I worked with students from all over the world, helping them with their personal and business goals. 

 

I've been always passionate about languages. I speak Portuguese, English, French, and Spanish, and am now learning my first words in German. My knowledge of foreign language learning gives me the best tools to help my students in their learning journey.

 

I created this course because I want to provide you with the same kind of material that I find useful for me when I am studying a foreign language.

 

I will be guiding you individually during this course by email or online chat. Do not hesitate in contacting me if you have questions. I will always be there for you! 

See you in class!
