Lesson One

Greetings One

Boa Tarde

Good Evening” 

Boa Noite


The simply repeat or mirror the greeting in return.

Greetings Two

How are you today?

Como você está hoje


I’m fine and you”

Eu estou bem, e você

This simple initial instruction has now started you on the road to learning the new language and has immediately motivated the student. From now on, the student and teacher goes through the same greeting process on each visit and then gradually expands the greeting conversation by adding small pieces of text to that first visit greeting.  Intermittently, we will introduce more text to expand on that conversation at the beginning of each new lesson.

So lets begin by asking the student to simply repeat the new words.

Word Introduction (1)

Repeat twice

A, (Uma / Um) A Pencil, (Um lapis) A Book, (Um livro) A Pen, (Uma caneta)

Teaching Point (1)

Remember that these translations are in Brazilian Portuguese. If the student is Spanish or French or Italian or Polish then simply change these few words by using a dictionary or Google Translate.

It’s easy and will take just a few minutes before the lesson starts. It’s important to speak very, very clearly and slowly and repeat if required, then ask the student to repeat the new words until the correct pronunciation is achieved. Props. You will need these items to hand before you start the lesson. The card can be a birthday card, a business card or a playing card. Coloured pencils, a pen, a book, a playing or business card, a box (match box), and a photo

Word Introduction (2)

A Box, (Uma Caixa) A Card, (Um cartao) A Photo, (Uma foto)

Teaching Point (2)

Before progressing further, ask the students to repeat all the new words one more time and at the same time, have the items to hand to allow the student time to associate the visual with the auditory. This will create a mental association between the object and the word. This process should be repeated where possible.

Word Introduction (3)

What, (O que) Is, (é) This, (Este) What’s this, (O que é isso)

Teaching Point (3)

Use the same teaching points as used in teaching points (1) and (2)

Word Introduction (4)

It, (Ele) Is, (é) It’s (Isto é)

Teaching Point (4)

Now, go over the fourteen new words once more before starting to use the words in the following questions. Then proceed and ask the following questions, using only the new words. Remember to speak along with the student in unison “tandem speaking” and immediately correct any mistakes in their pronunciation. Remember also to use the props and the correct question facial expression. If needed start each reply with the student by tagging” the student with the first word or syllable Ask the same question using all the objects one after the other and by introducing each object to the student.


What’s this?


It’s a pen.

It’s a box.

It’s a book.

It’s a pencil.

It’s a photo.

It’s a card.

Word Introduction

Is This? (Isto é) Yes, (Sim) No, (Não)

Teaching Point (5)

At this point, ensure that when the questions “is this?” and “what’s this?” both sound like questions by exaggerating the question expression using the face and hands. This is because, without the facial expression, body movement and the correct tone of voice, the student will not realize it’s a question. Don’t forget Tagging” and Tandem Speaking” when needed

Yes, it’s a box.

Is this a pen?

Yes, it’s a book.

Teaching Point (6)

Ask all of the questions twice using the props and correct facial expressions and hand movements, repeating the answers together in tandem” and correcting any mistakes immediately they occur.

Continue until the student is comfortable with the meanings and pronunciations. If mistakes are made always go back immediately, as correction at the right time feedback” is absolutely essential.

Word Introduction

No (Não) It Isn’t (Isto não é) But (Mas) It’s (Isto é)

a (Um / Uma)

Teaching Point (7)

From this point forward, all the new words are treated in the same way. Repeat twice until the correct pronunciation is achieved. Tag each answer and then continue in Tandem.

Questions (negative answers)

Is this a box?

No, it isn’t a box, it’s a pencil.
