I am a first generation Portuguese-American. I grew up speaking Portuguese and studied it for some years in high school. As the older generations of my family died off and/or spoke more English I forgot a lot of the Portuguese language I once knew from my younger days. Mia’s courses were an amazing resource for reconnecting with the knowledge I had lost as well as learning entirely new grammar skills.I’m so satisfied with these courses and excited for the day the C course is ready for studying. Mia is an extremely credible teacher and her warm and inviting personality makes learning very fun. If you are looking to learn the real Portuguese language then Mia is absolutely the person you should study with. The amount of access to the lectures and free materials makes this a great value for money. Thank you Mia!

Olá! I am Mia, and I have been teaching Portuguese for more than a decade now. From a young age, I loved languages, and I knew that I wanted to become a teacher pretty early on. So I did. I taught Portuguese and English to children in state schools, but I just knew that was not yet what I dreamed to do.
After coming back from The Netherlands, where I lived for three years, I did not know what to do. I had a master degree in teaching Portuguese as a Second Language, but I had no job and things were not so easy here in Portugal to get one.
I was at a loss, but actually that is when everything started to change: I started teaching one-on-one classes online and soon I realised that people really enjoyed what I did! More and more, I had students coming to me and asking me to give them classes.
So I came up with an idea: I would build my own online school and create courses online, that could reach more people and help students become fluent in Portuguese!
And this is how Mia Esmeriz Academy was created! I studied and studied, I learnt a lot of new skills to be able to teach online and I put together years of experience and hours of commitment that culminated in my online courses!
Just come with me in this adventure and don't forget to have fun while learning Portuguese :)
I live in Plymouth UK where Portuguese courses are not available. I was looking for a European Portuguese online course which is not very easy to find and by chance I found Mia’s course. Since then, I bought all her courses because I enjoyed them very much. They are easy to follow, Mia explains all clearly, in a relaxed way. She also will answer to any questions or inquiries sent to her via email. I also found the pdf notes very helpful, because I use them when away from the computer. I highly recommend this online course.
