Meet Cynthia!! She is from Recife, on the North East coast of Brazil. Currently, she and and her husband, Ricardo, are living in Colchester. Ricardo is working at Essex University in the Department of Business Studdies while Cynthia is taking a course in teaching English as a foreign language. They are both travelling the world, while completing their respective PHD's at the University of Barcelona.
Cynthia has become 'team tutor' as we try to learn some Brazilian Portuguese and she tries to instruct in the vagaries of simple phrases and pronunciation!! She has a tough task ahead of her!!
We've had three lessons, and I'm mightily impressed by the progress the team is making - due in no small part to Cynthia's skill and patience!!
