I'm Suzan Severo, an English and Portuguese Teacher from Brazil. I have a degree in Languages at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. I'm a specialist in teaching and learning foreign languages processes and I hold a Master's degree in Linguistics. My research was about digital technology applied to teaching and learning foreign languages processes.
I've been teaching Portuguese and English as a foreign language for more than 10 years now. My classes are based on the communicative approach but I've worked with different approaches and methodologies so I can easily adapt the lessons accordingly to the learner's necessities and learning style.
If you want to speak Portuguese with confidence, I can give you the tools you need which are Grammar, Vocabulary, and Pronunciation. I think it is important to provide engaging contexts for learning the language, so I like to use real-life situations but I also work with songs, videos, humor, and suspense.
My students describe me as a considerate, empathetic teacher. I just love learning and teaching languages!
