I’ve been extremely happy with my classes through your program. My instructor is great and very good at formulating lessons which are challenging but also accessible for a beginner like me. She’s also been very helpful in teaching me about Brazilian culture, colloquial expressions, and explaining tricky grammatical concepts.
I think Skype is a great way to take language lessons, especially in the 1-to-1 format; I feel that I’ve gained a solid grasp on speaking and understanding Portuguese in only 5 months of lessons, and that I will be able to express myself comfortably and confidently while living in Brazil. Taking lessons through Skype has also been great in terms of flexibility; on occasions when I have a schedule conflict, my instructor has been very helpful and accommodating in changing the times of our lessons so that I could continue classes while traveling or otherwise busy.
Learning Portuguese through SSB has been a great experience for me and I won’t hesitate to recommend it to others in the future or possibly sign up for more complex classes for myself.
