Eliana Silva was born in the 80s and grew up in the Algarve region of Portugal. The Algarve is a hotspot for tourists, so she developed a passion for the foreign languages she heard all around her. In 2008, she moved to Lisbon and started to explore her love for musical theater by developing her skills in singing, dancing, and drama. Eliana and Rui worked for the same airline and it wasn’t long before Rui asked her to help bring Practice Portuguese to life!
