Interest topicWritingTravelTechScienceSports & Fitness
I am a Brazilian from Brasília-DF, and therefore I have a neutral accent when speaking Portuguese. Currently, I live in João Pessoa-PB. I have a degree in Computer Science and I love everything related to technology and innovation. I completed a postgraduate course in teaching Portuguese to foreigners and also have experience with preparing for proficiency exams, such as CELPE-Bras. When I'm not learning new languages, I really enjoy watching sports on TV, especially soccer. Additionally, I like to stay updated on global politics and economics and see how people from different cultures react to problems. You can find me on Instagram @vou.aprender.portugues and on YouTube (Vou Aprender Port.

Diego is a fantastic teacher. He is friendly, calm, and patient and he always puts his students needs first. When I practiced speaking in Portuguese, I felt like I could make mistakes and he would correct them without judgment. I also really liked the way that he would type out what I was saying as I was saying it--this helped my pronunciation, my understanding of grammar, and just generally aided my progress in the language. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking to study Portuguese.

Diego is a gem of a portuguese teacher. I was trying to learn on my own, and was too shy to try to speak much with others. Diego has been so encouraging, and I feel so supported to grow my confidence in expressing myself. He is incredibly skilled and knowledgeable in the Brazilian portuguese language. For example, he taught me the proper pronunciation of the vowels using exercises of putting my hand on my throat to feel the J of jacare. He can also break down to explain the many subtle exceptions to rules. Most importantly, he is patient, kind, engaging, open minded, and all around makes learning fun for me. I'm so grateful for him offering his time and service on this platform. Check out his youtube page too! Highly highly recommend. - Justin

Obrigado muito para hoje!!! Diego is a great teacher. He pays attention to everything from pronunciation to proper use of grammar. He spent time making sure I was pronouncing things correctly. Furthermore, I was looking for a structured approach and Diego was ready with slides and clear explanations. Thank you again!

Always a great class with Diego. The class flows and the time goes by fast. I always feel like I learn new vocabulary and I improve with each session.

Useful to be reminded that proper nouns do exist in Portuguese, and that the suffix -ano exists in demonyms.
