I am a beginner going to Brazil for the month of May with a group of young professionals for a Rotary Group Study Exchange. I have been practicing with Pimsleur tapes for several months. I should be done with the third and final unit by the time I leave. Primarily, I am looking for someone to practice speaking with, and I may also want a few lessons with an instructor. I have Skype, but have only used it once.
I live in New York State, several hours north of New York City, and work as a compliance officer with an agency that provides services for people with disabilities.
