The international testing team, based in Sheffield, started their Portuguese language classes this week. Despite the fact they have little or no recent experience of foreign language learning, they appear to be enjoying their classes with Tribalingua.

In an exclusive interview Chris Hemmings, 26, said “oi… tudo bem… its fantastico!… tchau!”

Lessons take place online, conveniently, whilst they are sat at their desks in sunny Yorkshire and with their teacher in Brazil.

Rau tu bi a Brasiliã – Coming soon…

Rau tu bi a Brasiliã (“How to be a Brazilian”, written in “Portglish”) is going to be a new section of Tribaligua blog which will teach our Gringo Folks how to interact with natives and make friends. Every fortnight, it will talk about some culture points and bring some hints you should follow if you come to Brazil or if you realize there is a Brazilian working besides you (because you will realize it easily and you certainly will want to be friends with them – ask James Ward, Jon Holloway and Mark Wheeler why.)
