Come learn with me...

OlĂĄ! Bem-vindos!

Welcome to S.A. Pedrosa Language Works, where you'll find personalized online language courses in European Portuguese that you can attend from the comfort of your home.

Learning a language can be intimidating and to be perfectly honest, it is difficult if you are not in the position to interact with the language on a consistent and meaningful way.

That's where my courses come in. After a brief complimentary consultation, I'll put together a course for you and your personal needs: employment, self-improvement, love and/or culture, immigration...whatever your needs are, I can meet them.

Because our needs are so diverse, they simply can't be fulfilled by the typical language classroom. I've taught foreign languages in both the university setting as well as in American public high schools, and my main takeaway is that students can do well, they can understand all the grammatical concepts, verb conjugations, ... the nuts and bolts of the language enough to pass a test or course, but do they actually attain fluency? Rarely, if ever, because the majority of students simply want the grade, the credit hours, the requirements for graduation...

It's those that have an ongoing meaningful interaction with a language that become fluent.

By taking a course designed specifically for your goals, with notes and assignments tailored to what you need, coupled with multiple weekly one-to-one sessions with a dually fluent in (American) English and (European) Portuguese instructor 😉 who genuinely wants you to learn the language, you'll be in a much better position.

There are a lot of resources available online that will help you learn the language, but a significant portion are for Brazilian Portuguese, which is great, and of course still Portuguese, but there are differences. And if your goal is to assimilate into Portuguese society, and you want to sound like a European Portuguese speaker, I can help you.


The last few years have without a doubt shifted my mindset as I know it has for many out there. I'm determined more than ever to make my goals and desires, concrete realities. I'm here to help you shape yours as you explore the wonderful language and culture of Portugal. I want to help you be able to order um fino e um vinho branco at a cafĂ© Ă  beira-mar, as you watch the sunset, ir Ă s compras no mercado and intuitively be able to interact with the merchants, and be confident in dealing with any situação de emergĂȘncia.

While enrolled in any of my courses or subscribing to my texting-buddy services, you'll have direct access to me to be able to ask questions if you get stuck or need assistance while traveling and/or living in Portugal.

I hope that I can provide you with what you're looking for.

Don't hesitate to schedule a free "meet and greet" session to speak with me directly about any of my services.

Thanks for stopping by. :)
