Meet The Team
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 for four years, 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.
I can't wait to have you as my student!
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 the Speaking Brazilian Team!
See you in class!
