Private, Small-Group, and
Online Portuguese and Spanish Language Courses - Portuguese for Spanish Speakers

We offer private, small-group, and online language courses in Portuguese and Spanish. All classes are taught by native speakers.

Our group lessons include 3-6 students per class; we have found that this number allows ample opportunity for each student to speak and receive the necessary guidance from the instructor, while still having the benefit of interacting in a group.

Our online PORTUGUESE and SPANISH lessons are streamed live via Skype. These courses offer many benefits, including:
  • Students can communicate with instructors and learn a language from the comfort of their homes or workplaces.
  • Students can take lessons during their lunch break, evenings or weekends, or any other time at their convenience.
  • Students can participate in real-time interactions.



Testimonials


“Originally, I only perceived Portuguese as a skill to advance in my professional career as an engineer in the energy industry. However, Sueli brought a cultural dimension (e.g. Brazilian music, stories, news) to our weekly sessions complementing and enhancing the traditional language curriculum content. This approach made me more conscious and interested about the cultural diversity present in the Latin American culture. Additionally, her multilingual professional background (Portuguese/Spanish/English) made her an ideal instructor for those of us already fluent in two languages. Not only she was able to teach me Portuguese grammar rules but simplified them by finding parallelisms with my native language (Spanish). I am thrilled with the results of our sessions during the last two semesters. For instance, recently I was able to successfully managed a professional job interview in Portuguese and Spanish. It is an honor and pleasure for me to recommend Sueli Rojas.” Saudades! - Guillermo Trevino, Austin, Texas  (Distance Learner)


“Sueli is an excellent teacher. She tailors each lesson to your interest and needs, finding articles and videos clips to help you learn Portuguese and develop a practical vocabulary. With Sueli you receive a solid lesson in grammatical structure but she takes great pains to help you grasp the ebb and flow of the living language to comfortably be able to speak Brazilian Portuguese.”
-DPV, College Station, TX

 

“I have taken Portuguese for two semesters with Sueli. I like the structure of the lessons two times per week for one hour each because we review reading text in Portuguese, dictation where I listen to Sueli and write in Portuguese, and listening to Portuguese music and news programs. Sueli customizes my lessons to fit my international affairs program by giving me topics to discuss in the lesson. Most of all, Sueli is patient, corrects my pronunciation, gives me insights into commonly used phrases and is preparing me thoroughly to take my language exam.” AF, Texas A&M, International Studies.



“I was requested by my employer to complete 50 hours of Portuguese language training in 4 weeks. My employer directed me to RedStone Translation & Language Center in the College Station, Tx.

The course structure was flexible in every way including; content, instruction method, time frame, and total length. This type of course in this compressed time frame is usually at best limited to survival and emergency communications, what was provided was so flexible that the initial goal, of minimal survival skill in Portuguese was exceeded. I have attended many industrial trainings in the last 22 years, and in my opinion this customized language training was among the very best of all of my trainings. I feel that I was actually productive in this training and now have a solid base for all of my ongoing and future language trainings.” - D.VM, Cameron, TX

"Sueli brings energy, interesting topics and joy to her teaching.  She makes classes challenging and one really feels like they are learning.  Teaching is more than memorizing words and conjugations to Sueli.  We also learn culture, history and how to think in another language.  It's always a fun exchange of knowledge." - M. H., Bryan, TX

"Sueli Rocha-Rojas is one of the very best teachers I've ever had the pleasure to learn from.  She truly loves teaching!  Her classes are always just tough enough to make sure you learn but are also varied and fun so that you have a good time learning.  She is flexible and can suit anyone's style of learning and even teaches via Skype if you can't be there in person. I cannot recommend her highly enough!” - Anna Perkinson, College Station, TX USA

“I am learning to speak and write Español. I am also learning historic and current facts about the culture of Spanish speaking countries. Barcelona, Spain is my newest dream vacation.” -  M. Markowich. C.S, TX

Spanish Courses for Kids

Homeschooling

We are proud to offer a special new program: We know that there is more than one way to educate a child. As a result, we have created unique curriculums to meet every homeschool need. We strongly encourage, but not required, parental participation in our classes.

We also offer extra-curricular Spanish classes for kids. These are hands-on, thematically organized classes that allow children to learn Spanish through music, literature, games, visual aids, art, and more!

This will be a great opportunity for kids to have a unique and authentic cultural experience without leaving the Brazos Valley. 

Best of all, they'll have a great time!
