Você fala português?

Eu sou brasileira e moro na Califórnia há 18 anos.
Me formei pela Universidade Cal State Fullerton e leciono na Saddleback College desde 2008.

Portuguese is the 7th most spoken language in the world!
It has been proposed as one of the official languages of the United Nations, and its use is expanding due to business growth.
Brasil was the host of the Soccer World Cup in 2014 and is also hosting the Olympic Games this year.
In our courses you will learn this fascinating language and enjoy its culture.
