Crash Course Highlights
small group setting - 2 to 4 people
tailored to the clients' needs
at the end of the 4 weeks, you will be able to - At least: introduce yourself and ask about others in regards to place of origin, work, life, study, daily tasks, booking appointments, etc. (speaking). Some writing and reading. Go far and beyond: how fluent you will be, depends on the group. Some students become reasonably fluent to talk about travel, professional life, education, transportation, likes, dislikes, asking for directions, ordering food and other services, write, read and beyond.
Pronunciation, mnemonics, cultural aspects (music, food, etc) social aspects, body language and facial expressions play a very important role in Language Acquisition. We blend in these aspects from the very beginning. It might sound a lot, however, "these are all so smoothly integrated ... that you hardly realize just how much material you’re absorbing in every class!" said Lara Bourdin. Read full testimonial below.
"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!
