I am native in Portuguese Brazil - I am helping language students ( PT-BR )
I'm looking for some native speaker in English or fluent to learn together. It is difficult to find someone willing to study daily and really help you, knowing this difficulty, I decided to help someone in Portuguese doubts, can be written or pronounce, any questions, I am willing to help. I hope to find someone willing to really learn and a reciprocal exchange to happen.

Hi Bruno, I am looking for the same. Let me know if you would like to connect. I am traveling to Portugal next month and need the practice. Obridgado!
Hey, Yoc4ue. Although it's the same language, perhaps it would be better for you to practice with a Portuguese partner then. I say that because there are some noticeable differences between PT-PT and PT-BR (especially the accents). Of course, if you can't find any Portuguese partner, then a Brazilian partner would be helpful and, in the end, you'd be practicing the language the same way. But it's well known that Portuguese people for some reason can understand Brazilian Portuguese easier than the other way around. I think this is due to the speed of the speech. Portuguese people usually speak faster than Brazilian people. If you practice with a Brazilian, it could be easier for you to learn how to speak but I think it could delay you from understanding the Portuguese people. I don't know, just my two cents.
Hi Rafaleon. Thank you for responding. I have heard this as well but I am willing to practice with anyone who is native speaker as I have not truly been able to practice speaking. Encouraged by these responses to Brandon, I will however post a separate request seeking a native of Portugal. Thanks again for responding. I very much appreciate it. While I don’t teach English per se I am college professor in the US and can be a tremendous help to anyone seeking to learn or practice English.
I totally understand your concern. I am a native Portuguese speaker but I'm Brazilian. I am willing to help you as much as I can with Portuguese. It would be useful for me too because even though I am currently at a pretty advanced level in English I still struggle considerably when I have to speak during regular conversations with natives. I definitely need to practice my speaking skills. So, if you're interested, you can contact me anytime. We could chat through Skype or Facebook. What works best for you.

Thank you! I will email you my information. Very much looking forward to practicing with you.
Hi, I am not a native speaker but maybe we could practice together, I am interested in Portuguese. We could practice every day.
Hello Bruno, I am more than willing to help you with your English classes. I am learning Portuguese, it is easy to follow the Duolingo program but I need to start interacting with someone in order to practice what I have been learning here.
I have worked as an English Teacher for more than 35 years, fell free to contact me.
Hey, Sandra. I don't know if the offer stands for other people, but I'm interested. I'm a native Portuguese speaker and I am currently at a pretty advanced level in English but I still struggle considerably when I have to speak and improvise a lot of sentences. So I need to practice my speaking skills. I am more than willing to help you with Portuguese if you are interested. We could chat through Skype, Facebook or any other way that works best for you. You can message me anytime.

RafaLeon, it works for me! I will get in touch with you to set the best time to study.
That's great! I'm looking forward to it. Can't wait to start practicing with you. I'm sure we can help each other. :)
I still can not speak English, I can write, but I can't form sentences and not talk. If not a problem, no doubt yes.
