Stephanie Durães

Meet our CEO


I am a U.S. citizen and permanent resident in Portugal since 1986. I have been married for 30 years to an officer of the Portuguese Air Force. I have 2 adult children and several fluffy pets! My creativity and imagination is endless so I became a business woman in 2009 to put it to use for the betterment of myself and others.

I have been a teacher of English as a foreign language for 30 years. Exuberantideia Language School in the Quinta do Conde is the latest product of my creativity and culmination of all my experience over the years which still grows everyday!

Through hard work, dedication, honesty, integrity and a true love for learning as well as sharing knowledge with others, I have made a positive impact on the lives of the many families who have passed through my personal and professional life. They too have made a very important contribution to mine.

My latest addition to the School has been a project that is very rewarding. As an English language provider I know the importance of quality books in English at an affordable price and the difficulty there is in finding them in Portugal. I not only sell Usborne Books to anyone who wants to offer or acquire quality books but I also have a library of my own within my school, Exuberantideia Language School, that is open and available to our clients and the public who might want to visit us to share a great book with their child. Reading opens young minds to other cultures, history, unlimited imagination and even future careers that they may not have the opportunity to be exposed to in any other way. “There is no APP to replace your lap so read an Usborne book with your child today!”
