Olá Amigos! My name is Charlles Nunes and I’m the creator of Learn Portuguese Now. I was born and raised in a small city in Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil. I love learning, teaching and writing. Here’s my story...
Serving as a Missionary
When I was 21, I went on a mission, and discovered my passion for teaching.
During this time, I was called to work on the staff. Then, I needed to learn English overnight. My companion helped me learn English at home. We practiced reading aloud in English from 5:30am to 6:30am - every single day, for about three months.
Becoming a teacher
After my mission, I started teaching English for beginners - while studying languages in college. In 2001, I wrote my first book: O Pulo do Gato.
