I followed Emma’s Skype lessons for over a year in preparation for my permanent move to Portugal. Thanks to Emma I went from being a complete beginner to someone able to hold a conversation. Since moving, I have even been able to deal with Portuguese administration without any help! 

Emma tailored lessons to suit my needs and Quizlet has been an added bonus; incredible value for money.

Fabulous lessons, Emma is a lovely calm teacher who especially improved my confidence when speaking portuguese. I had always found languages very difficult and didn't understand but Emma has a gift and I've actually learnt, we both have and we just want to say muito obrigado amigo
