Hi William,


We use "deste" (contraction of the preposition "de" + masculine demonstrative pronoun "este"):

Oi.


Eu gosto de este video. It simulates a real conversation. When you are speaking and listening, there are no subtitles. This lesson is worth repeating several times.

Hi Joe,


Thank you for contacting us about this.


As an absolute beginner, we'd suggest you start with the very basics: the alphabet and how to read and write Portuguese:

Portuguese (Brazilian) Alphabet:

https://www.portuguesepod101.com/portuguese-alphabet/


Cracking the Portuguese Writing System! Learn the Portuguese writing system:

https://www.portuguesepod101.com/lesson/all-about-2-cracking-the-portuguese-writing-system/


Another series that is worth watching really early in your Portuguese learning is our pronunciation-related lessons.

Portuguese Pronunciation Made EASY! Learn Portuguese pronunciation:

https://www.portuguesepod101.com/lesson/all-about-4-portuguese-pronunciation-made-easy/


Ultimate Portuguese Pronunciation Guide:

https://www.portuguesepod101.com/index.php?cat=59


You would then be ready to start with one of our main series, the Absolute Beginner series (audio lessons):

https://www.portuguesepod101.com/index.php?cat=Absolute+Beginner

The video lessons can add up to your learning as well: https://www.portuguesepod101.com/index.php?cat=Absolute%20Beginner%20Videos


The next step would be the Beginner series, then the Upper Beginner, the Lower Intermediate, Intermediate, and finally the Upper Intermediate series. Each lesson of these series contains a dialogue and focuses on grammar, vocabulary, vocabulary usage, sample sentences and cultural notes.


In between these series, you can of course listen or watch other series too, depending on what appeals to you and your needs. However, the core grammar is found on the aforementioned series.


Should you need extra help with grammar, check out our grammar banks:

As for enriching your vocabulary, you can check out the vocabulary lists:

Oi.


As an absolute beginner, what am I supposed to get out of these listening comprehension quizzes? I know very few of these words so it is nearly impossible for me to follow. Should I spend the time going over each phrase to learn the vocabulary now, or should I move forward to the next lessons?


Obrigado,

Joe

Oi Franko,


Thanks for your comment.

You're right. It's not the literal translation, but sometimes, the literal translation does not sound natural or it's wrong in the other language. That's why we don't use the literal translation.

For example, "that one about cars" would literally be "aquele um sobre carros", but that's wrong in Portuguese and one would never say that.


I hope it helps, and let us know if you have further questions.

oi tudo bem,

in the dialouge it says" Aquele livro sobre carros " and English translation " that one about cars"

should it not be "that book about cars", as the word livro is book, I find this quite often in the courses and really confuses me.

would this not be the correct way ,, aquele uma sobre carros that one about cars

thank you
