When I finished my first English course, after 3 1/2 years in it, I could communicate with confidence BUT I couldn't really understand the native speakers I'd have a chance to talk to.

So, what I am trying to say is that your experience is quite common for the foreign speaker being initiated in the spoken language immersed among the native speakers in a foreign country.

I don't know if you have already studied English or if you self-taught yourself.

Nowadays the Internet has a huge variety of possibilities.

As for A.J. Hoge, well I saw him on Youtube and I subscribed for his FREE lessons but I haven't had a chance to go through his lessons yet.

My personal opinion is that Hoge is just another method, just another idea, but the big question still is...would his training be specific for YOUR needs.

Teachers like Hoge are more experience in training Asian speakers trying to learn English.

My advice for you if you will is to get yourself a very good teacher that is experienced in training Brazilians on how to really speak and understand English.

I wish you the best of luck your learning!

I love this language.

P.S.: I am very familiar with the Utah Accent and it is one of the most clear accents you can find in American English quite different experience if you were to speak English with the native Bostonian on New Yorker, then that would be different for a Brazilian, but Utah's accent is lovely, great people too.
