Olá, Salve, Χαῖρε , Ciao, Hello! My name is Joel. I am a native Brazilian with a love of classical languages. Fun Fact: 80% of English words are borrowed from Latin (with over 150,000 words from Greek)! I graduated from the Federal University of Paraíba in 2020 with a degree in classical languages. In addition, I graduated from an intensive 8-month immersion course in Latin and Ancient Greek at the prestigious Academia Vivarium Novum in Rome. From my bio you may have recognized that I currently speak 5 languages: Portuguese, Latin, Ancient Greek, Italian, and English, and would like to learn more. I also enjoy chess, strategic games, journaling, and meditation.

Awesome lesson as always! I'm a complete beginner but Joel does a great job teaching me the basics of latin and practicing speaking based on LLPSI. He always corrects me in a very gentle way and is incredibly patient. Overall I learn a ton and it's always a fun learning together, so I highly recommend!

A really great first Latin lesson! I already had some knowledge of the language but he understood exactly how I need to learn from here on and was really patient and kind. Looking forward to all my next lessons!

Great teacher. I feel like I learned a lot and Joel gave plenty of good examples of grammatical structures. I had multiple instances to practice my Latin in real time.

I mistook when our lesson started and was late to the lesson and I really appreciated that Joel took the time to still be willing to teach. I'm a bit forgetful and so it meant a lot to have such a patient teacher.
