How does it work to have lessons with me?

Let’s learn Portuguese or English?

How does it work?
Here you will have detailed information on how to have language lessons with me.

Online Lessons

  • Get in contact with me:
    Tell me about your interest in learning Portuguese or improving your English, as well as your availability for a possible 30-minute free trial on Skype.

    • What happens during our 30-minute free trial?
      We discuss your current level, learning methods and approaches, material, frequency and dates of lessons. We will talk about all your learning concerns and when we start our work.
  • Invoice and Payment:
    Receive and pay your invoice. You can pay online with a PayPal account or a credit card. We can discuss other options if you live in the UK and/or in Bristol.
  • Start lessons:
    Meet me again on Skype for a video call at the agreed time for our first lesson. Hooray!
    Although you can access our lessons using your mobile phone, I suggest you do it from a computer or tablet, due to the fact that I will be sharing my screen with you to make our lesson dynamic, communicative and visual.
  • What happens during our online lessons?
    I make you a video call on Skype at the agreed time and we start our lessons.

    • Where do we start?
      I share my second screen with you and start our lesson, usually with a warm-up activity (word game, video, music, slang, expressions, or others), then I introduce you to everything you need to be a confident speaker.
      We use Power Point presentations, books, audio and video files, and reliable online resources.
    • I need to see written examples to understand better. How are you going to write it for me?
      When I share my second screen with you, you will see a word file where I make all meaningful notes. These notes are forwarded to you at the end of each lesson. You can be confident that you will have all notes made during our lessons.
    • We work on all four of your language skills:
      Speaking, listening, reading and writing.
    • Am I going to have time to practice speaking and writing?
      Definitely! We are always going to have homework.
      Our homework is an activity that will allow you to practice what you have learnt with me and is relevant to you language needs and interests.
      I am extremely experienced in getting students to express themselves and speak a lot!
  • Do I need to buy any books?
    No, you do not.
    I make my own material based on what is more current, reliable sources and books.

Do you still have any doubts? Write to me! I would love to explain everything to you.
