Hello! My name is Andre Dias. I’m from Lisbon, Portugal.
I went to the University of Lisbon to get a degree in Languages Literature and Cultures with a Major in English Studies. I can speak English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. Before working as an English Teacher, I worked at the Zoo of Lisbon as a Marine Mammal Trainer (dolphins and sea lions).

I love Portugal! I also love Japan! Did you know that there are a lot of interesting things between our countries? Both Castella and Tempura came from Portugal! Incredible isn’t it? (Although honestly, in my opinion, the Japanese style of tempura tastes much better than the Portuguese one) .

I chose to live in Japan not only because of its amazing culture but also because just like Portugal it’s an extremely safe country to live in.

I have a lot of hobbies, most of them involve sports. I love going to the gym, playing soccer, handball and baseball. Since I’m from Portugal, I obviously love going to the beach and surfing! Aside from sports I also like to play games, watch movies and TV shows.

Would you like to know more? I’m looking forward to meeting you!
