My name is Ian, I was born in Brazil (yes, although not very Brazilian, Ian is my real name!) and I currently live in the UK.  For the last 7 years I have been working with languages, teaching, translating and interpreting. I have taught Portuguese for all types of students, such as for GCSE in schools, for university purposes, for tourism, relocation, etc. Since 2014 I’m also a Portuguese teacher for Cactus Language (http://www.cactusworldwide.com).

In July 2015 I finally decided to build a Blog where all Portuguese learners in the world can have access to unique language resources that I have been developing. Since many of my students like the word Azul, I chose this word to represent the blog, thus the name Português Azul.

In parallel to languages I also compose music and sound art, which can be seen on:
