About Me

CURRENT MISSION

vive y deja vivir

ABOUT ME

I love languages that's why I'am a Teacher of Spanish, Portuguese and English. I`ve been teaching languages since 1990. I lived in Brazil for 3 years and in Portugal. I love learning languages and about other cultures. Is there a better way to learn about that than travelling?

PHILOSOPHY

I like a lot the following lines of Alvaro de Campos. That could apply to my philosophy:

Nao sou nada.
Nunca serei nada.
Nao posso querer ser nada.
A parte isso, tenho em mim todos os sonhos do mundo.

Alvaro de Campos, 15-1-1928

Why I'm on Couchsurfing
