Congratulations for doing such a kind of work. It must to be very grateful for you. I'm a english learner, by the way and I really would like to suggest one thing:
- give your teachings in English, not in portuguese, please. In my viewpoint( as a student) it could be genuinely more effective. Cheers, Jaime Bastos.

Hi, Jaime.
I loved your message in English!
I write my blog in Portuguese because many people don't understand as much English as you and I try to help those who know very little and can't afford a course. Also, I write about Portuguese for Portuguese speakers and speakers of other languages. I always recommend sites that are only in English for those like you.
Come back again!
