My name is Lydie and I live in Portugal, in a beautiful city by the sea.
Personally, I love to learn languages. Besides my native language - Portuguese, I also speak English, Romanian and a little bit of French. So, I’m familiar with the issues that we face when learning a different language and I can help you with those.
I've been teaching languages since 2016 and, since 2021, I've been teaching Portuguese as a Foreign Language at the prestigious Universidade Nova de Lisboa, from where I also hold a postgraduate degree on Teaching Portuguese as a Non-native Language. I also hold a TEFL and a TEYL certificate and I am experienced in teaching grammar and conversation skills to children (from age 4) and adults. I enjoy teaching people from different cultures and I believe that we all have a lot to learn from each other.
I teach in a relaxed way, using the communicative approach, as I consider that it's better to learn a language through interaction and using contextualized vocabulary.
My lessons are designed to work on grammar, conversational skills and pronunciation. I can adapt the lesson to your specific needs and goals.
