Markus Ribeiro
Teacher of Portuguese

Born in the Netherlands, brought up in Brazil by an English mother, languages have always been a part of my life. I have always enjoyed learning new expressions and through them learning a bit about the culture and character of different places.

I also love music, something I feel is another universal expression of culture and identity, Bossa Nova being a particular favourite of mine.

I try to bring these values of cultural and personal exchange to the classroom, aiming to be energetic and engaging with my students to properly communicate the spirit of the Portuguese language.
