ABOUT LAURA, THE INSTRUCTOR "I began studying Portuguese in 2004, taking classes five days per week for one academic year. After taking all of the undergraduate Portuguese courses at my university, I concluded my studies with an exchange at Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina in Florianópolis, Brazil. Since then, I have continued to use and develop my Portuguese in my career in the translation industry, through tutoring others in the language, and during extensive travel throughout Brazil."
