With Virginia Langhammer


Speaking Brazilian School Team


Virginia makes learning Portuguese a very enjoyable experience. The way she teaches is sensitive to my abilities and my style of learning. She explains each topic in several ways and helps me to understand the proper use of grammar in every day conversation.”

Virginia Langhammer - Director and Teacher

Teaching Portuguese as a second language has become my passion since I moved to NYC in 2013.

Prior to opening my school in 2018, I taught at the top language schools in New York, where I worked with students from all over the 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: Patricia and Alexandra. 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!

Your teacher,


Meet The Team

Patrícia Gonçalves - Teacher

Olá! My name is Patrícia Gonçalves. I’m originally from Curitiba (Brazil). I’ve lived in New York since 2007 with my husband, my 8-year son and our little dog called Honey-Banana.


I’ve volunteered as a Portuguese teacher for children in public schools in the United States, which was a wonderful experience.


I’ve been teaching Portuguese as a second language to English speakers and Spanish speakers for many years and now I’m happy to be part of Speaking Brazilian Team!

See you in class!
