I signed up for Portuguese lessons at Accent Brazil in May 2014 and can safely say it was one of the best decisions I’ve made all year. In just 26 hours (16 hours of semi-private lessons + 10 hours of private lessons), spread out over 3 months, I went from speaking hesitant Portunhol (aka Spanish with an attempted Portuguese accent) to expressing myself with confidence and ease, reading works of literature, and translating specialized texts from Portuguese to English and French. My love for the Portuguese language and my strong pre-existing interest in Brazilian culture definitely gave me a boost from the beginning, but I have Meyre to thank first and foremost for my progress over the past months.
Her classes offer a perfect mix of explanations on grammar and vocabulary, listening comprehension activities, and speaking practice. Best of all, these are all so smoothly integrated (as per the Open Learning Language Methodology) that you hardly realize just how much material you’re absorbing in every class! Being a language teacher myself, I greatly appreciate and admire Meyre’s ability to tailor her lessons perfectly to her students’ levels and interests all the while making the learning process fun and stimulating thanks to her good humour and genuine dedication to her students. I am embarking on my first trip to Brazil in just one month, and thanks to Meyre, I’m feeling prepared and excited to take on the challenge of full immersion. Muito, muito obrigada Meyre!

I have been a part time student of Meyre Santos for approximately 2 years. Meyre is a very knowledgeable and resourceful teacher. She is fluent in English and a native speaker of Brazilian Portuguese. She has a creative approach and pays attention to each student’s individual needs.
After 8 weeks beginners, I transitioned into the Intermediate course and I was writing e-mails, having fluent conversations about my life…companies I want to work with…etc…I recommend taking this course with Meyre, if you want to develop your Portuguese language skills as quickly as possible…
I’ve known Meyre since 2010 when I began learning Portuguese with her. Her commitment with her lessons and the undeniable enjoyment she felt in every class quickly came across as some of her most valuable attributes. Not surprisingly my learning curve remained quite steep and my Portuguese skills improved rapidly and significantly. Needless to say, I fully recommend Meyre’s services.
I was impressed with the speed Daniel started communicating in Portuguese! I am Brazilian and Daniel and I work together so I could see his progress on a weekly basis. His dedication combined with the methodology he learned at Accent Brazil definitely made a difference on this learning process.

In English you can say ‘I wrote a paper about the war’, if you directly translate it to Portuguese would be ‘Escrevi um papel sobre a guerra’, which the meaning is completely different from what you wanted to say in English. The right translation for that sentence would be ‘Fiz um trabalho sobre a guerra’. ‘Trabalho’, in this sentence, means something made for school/university. Other examples:
I wrote a check. Wrong: Escrevi um cheque. Right: Fiz (assinei, preenchi, emiti) um cheque.
I attend the University. Wrong: Eu atendo a Universidade. Right: Eu frequento a Universidade. ... See MoreSee Less
There are so many exceptions in that concept, such as ‘o mapa’, ‘o sistema’, ‘o programa’, ‘o problema’, ‘o poema’, ‘o telefonema’. (ending in EMA is usually masculine). So, do not worry if you have just started to learn Portuguese and have not got that yet. It comes with time combined with lots of reading and practicing. ... See MoreSee Less
