Stacy-Ann's Recommendation Letter
It was a great privilege to meet Stacy-Ann and her family. I met her husband during the Steam Generators Replacement Project in Angra 1, and he gave me the opportunity of helping his wife with the Portuguese language. Here is the e-mail she wrote to our coordinator at the end of our classes:
Thank you for providing me with a great portuguese language teacher.
My husband and I (and our two boys) are expected to return to the U.S. by the end of the year. We are currently working through our repatriation process.
As a result, I did have my final class with Mr. Charlles Nunes this past Thursday November 12th, as unfortunately these upcoming weeks will be significantly busy.
As they say, the third time is the charm! Mr. Nunes was my third portuguese teacher here in Paraty/Angra dos Reis. It is such a pity that we did not meet him from the very beginning.
Mr. Nunes was dedicated, extremely responsible, punctual and focused. Thanks to him, my Portuguese has improved tremendously.
I would certainly recommend him to other (company name)employees, and any other expatriates that you may work with in this region.
Please let me know if there is any additional information you will need from us. Mr. Nunes will be submitting the final paper work in the near future.
