About the Founder
Lincoln De Oliveira
Lincoln De Oliveira
Founder / President
Language guru. Coach. Instructor. Actor. Voice talent. Entrepreneur. World traveler.
I was born in Curitiba, Paraná State, Brazil and I grew up along the coast so my native language is Portuguese, followed by learning English and then Spanish. In 1998, I graduated from Fafipar State College, Paraná State, Brazil with a Bachelor's Degree in Literature and Language Arts. In 1999, I moved to the United States to improve my language skills in English and I fell in love with the US, so I decided to build my life here from the ground up.
I have been teaching foreign language since I was 14 years old and have never stopped because I love it. My passion for foreign language is because I see it as an art, like a painting on the wall exposing its beauties and secrets. I teach it so that others can expand on their opportunities as I did because there is so much one can do with an extra language. It truly opens new doors, both professionally and personally.
Before founding Atlanta Institute of Language in 2014, I was a partner in other language schools since 2006. Prior to running language schools, my professional career included working in the Foreign Language Department, where I worked with multiple US government agencies including the FBI, ICE, GBI, NSA and the military.
As Founder and President of both AIL and our subsidiary company, Linguistic Guru, I love coaching actors and actresses in foreign language, helping them to perfect accents and dialects. These intensive lessons are crucial to their success, since many actors don't speak a foreign language, yet they must memorize their lines in the language of the role. They must also get a sense and understanding of the culture and emotions so their lines are fluid and they don’t sound like a rookie. It can be a challenge but I love helping actors succeed in mastering a language for their role.
In addition to teaching and coaching actors foreign language, I enjoy working in movies and TV as an actor, and have appeared in movies including Fast 5 with Vin Diesel, My Christmas Soldier, Evil Keg and Manhattan Crack'r. I have worked in voice over work, modeling and in television, even interviewing the former President of Brazil, Mr. Fernando Henrique Cardoso on MTV.
