Genuine expert’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Mia’s knowledge of Portugal and the Portuguese language. I completed Mia’s A1 course and currently enrolled in A2. I also attend individual tutoring sessions with Mia via Skype. The sessions prepared me for my last trip to Portugal, helping to improve my pronunciation, sentence structure, and knowledge about Portuguese culture. Her courses deliver in a clear, concise, friendly manner and spotlight the language and grammar skills used today in Portugal. ”No matter how well my daily Portuguese studies are going—some great, some not so great–Mia always makes sure I leave with a smile and encouragement.” If you want to become fluent in Portuguese or learn some language survival skills before a trip to Portugal, Mia’s “Learn European Portuguese Online Course,” and individual Skype lessons earn my highest recommendation.
