I am constantly working on improving my Portuguese by finding Brazilian cultural events to attend to practice the language, dance, sing and enjoy the company of Brazilians and Brazil lovers.

A typical excuse I hear for those who aren’t learning a language is that they don’t have the time or money to go to another country to learn a language.


I learned to speak fluent Spanish and Italian without living abroad. I was already fluent in Spanish when I went to Argentina.

I made a short video of the Yemanja Festival for the Afro-Brazilian Ocean Goddess held in Santa Cruz, CA every year in September. You can dance and sing to Brazilian music and speak in Portuguese without going to Brazil.
