There are plenty of interesting options for our accommodation. It will most likely be a countryside house near Tavira.

I haven't booked it yet because I want to get a better idea of the group's composition (how many couples/singles) and your preferences before I do so. That will for instance help me understand how big a house we might need.

I look forward to soon talking to you about this and much more. Até breve, p

Not as fluent as you’d wish?

Writing Practice is for ambitious intermediate learners committed to improving their overall language skills.

Becoming articulate

Nearly all students wish they could express themselves more freely in Portuguese. For many, it’s not that they don’t have enough vocab or grammar. In most cases, they have enough of both.

Yet, something is missing. Speech just doesn’t flow as one would wish.

Writing practice is this wonderful (often underestimated) tool that will help you become articulate in Portuguese. It’s especially effective to take students from intermediate to fluency level.

Writing practice helps you

  • assimilate grammar organically
  • increase your vocab and long-term retention
  • tune your brain into thinking straight in Portuguese
  • make a foreign language, Portuguese, your own

Take it to the next level with qualified feedback

Language learners are often blind to grammar mistakes, out-of-context translations, or unnatural constructions. The only way to make your writing practice truly effective and outgrow your limitations is through qualified review and feedback.

After Purchase

As soon as you complete your purchase, I’ll get in touch with you to briefly discuss the writing topics and grant you access to your Google Classroom (you’ll need a Gmail account).

Inside Google Classroom, you’ll see your first assignment under the tab “classwork”. Here’s what the typical workflow looks like:

  1. Open the assignment’s Google Docs and write your text (max. 425 words per assignment). Turn it in when you are ready.
  2. After you send it in, I go through your text to review it. When I am done, I will send it back to you.
  3. Open the reviewed version and go through all my remarks and comments. You can reply to my comments directly in the document in case something is unclear.
  4. A new assignment is soon released and the cycle starts over.

Hear from my students

It’s always felt like a struggle to express myself in Portuguese, even though I’ve been learning it for over 4 years. After 3 months of practicing my writing and getting Pedro’s help, I am already noticing significant progress. I can now articulate my thoughts more easily, not only when I write but also when I speak. It’s amazing. Who’d have thought that writing can improve your speaking!?

I easily get stuck when speaking Portuguese because I miss those little word connectors all the time, which makes me sound more like a broken record. I am no beginner and this brings me a lot of frustration. I’ve recently bought Premium Writing Practice and 6 assignments in, I’m starting to see results. It is all starting to flow better now. I will most likely buy another round after I’ve completed this one.
