About the lesson

I am a retired Master's degree teacher. I have taught all levels of Spanish from grades 7 through 12 in Vermont and Massachusetts, and have taught at the college and university levels as well. More recently, I taught Brazilian Portuguese at Cape Cod Community College from fall semester 2002 to spring semester 2014.

I focus on the four skills of language learning which include speaking, listening, reading, and writing. I also focus on phonetics, especially when teaching Brazilian Portuguese. My goal for my students is for them to be able to produce coherent statements and communication in the target language by teaching them vocabulary that includes all parts of speech such as nouns, verbs, adjective, adverbs, prepositions, etc. The goal is to be able to simply communicate!

About Mary Ellen

I first started teaching Spanish after coming home from a Peace Corps mission in Paraguay which has continued for 30+ years. After living in Brazil for 2 years, I began teaching Portuguese at the community college on Cape Cod, MA.
I have taught many students of all ages and all backgrounds. A few of my high school students wound up going abroad to pursue further studies, and actually get degrees in Spanish. I have had Portuguese students write me letters from Brazil, telling me that my language classes really helped them get a great start in learning to speak Brazilian Portuguese! As a teacher, it is always wonderful to get letters like that!
