Hello, I am Fabiana, a Brazilian who loves culture and diversity. I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, now I live in the United States with my family. In addition to teaching Portuguese, I tell my students that they are going to learn a lot about Brazilian culture, because I believe part of learning a language is about understanding the culture as a whole. As Federico Felini said, "A different language is a different vision of life". I cannot wait to introduce to you that new perspective. Are you still in doubt if you should learn Portuguese? Let me reinforce this thought by bringing a quote from Nelson Mandela: "If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart". How about getting to know the Portuguese language and Brazilian culture? See you in class! Tchau, tchau.
