Hi, I am Alexandra. I am passionate about languages, new cultures and art in all its variety. I love traveling and speaking about countries and traditions. Meeting new people is part of journeys so I take every opportunity to chat with local people, share my experience and learn from them. I am a real language enthusiast, I think that every language spoken in the world is precious. I am a speaker of 5 languages, and at the moment I am learning Spanish and Romanian, and improving Polish, And I won't definitely stop learning new languages.
Aprende as línguas comigo! Eu adoro de aprender novos idiomas, e sou falante de 5 línguas. Acho que falar uma nova lingua é descobrir mais sobre o nosso mundo.
Буду рада видеть Вас на своих уроках, и надеюсь вдохновить Вас на изучение языка, который Вы выбрали, и, возможно, на изучение нового. Знание языка, уверена, это своеобразный код для того, чтобы еще лучше понять мир, в которoм мы живем.

I am keen on giving homework as I am sure that the good results in learning a new language come from a regular usage of this language. However, I try to make this process easier, so I avoid long boring exercises on grammar. Instead I propose students to make connections with their mother tongue, taking examples from every day life. My method is based on active communication, as I believe that knowing a language is knowing speaking in it. So I try to explain grammar, correct mistakes, and introduce new vocabulary in a communicative and fan way, and encourage students to speak. I use a wide range of materials in my lessons, from reading of different kind of articles to audio/video examples.

- I've been teaching languages for more than 10 years, starting as an English teacher in a primary school in Portugal. In the final year of my degree (I hold a BA in English language) I started working in CitySchool as a foreign languages teacher. I was working with children, teenagers and people after 50s; they were Portuguese, Brazilians, Russians, Indians and other nationalities. In 2018 I was honoured a Master's degree in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching from London's university and this has enhanced my knowledge, my understanding about how the process of language acquisition happens. I believe that I can help everyone to learn a new language.
