European Portuguese Master Course | A2 Level

Tailored for upper beginners, this course will broaden your knowledge of the Portuguese language, building on the A1-Level.

For years I have tried other sources and subscription services to help me improve my Portuguese; while these other sources are helpful at building familiarity with the language and improving vocabulary, nothing comes close to the dramatic improvement in my understanding of the grammatical rules that Mia’s A2 course has given me. Having completed the A2 course, I feel much more confident in my ability to conjugate verbs more accurately, build better sentences, and translate/understand Portuguese more fully in the future. It has given me a great foundation to build a stronger understanding of the European Portuguese. I look forward to the more advanced courses!

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 :)
