Hi PortuguesePod101.com Listeners! What's the best way to practice pronunciation, in your view?

Oi Elisabeth,


In this lesson we only show some of the sounds, and we didn't explain about the other sounds for "s" in Portuguese, because it could get too confusing.

But usually, when the "s" is in the middle of a word, it sounds like "z" in English, although there are still some exception. For example: "casa" (house) or "mesa" (table).


I hope it helps. You can let me know if you still have any questions!

Sorry, maybe this was answered in the previous comment, but I wasn't quite sure.


The lesson notes and audio (as of 3/24/14 when I downloaded them) don't include exceptions / modifications to the rules for the consonant 's'.

Is this answered in a future lesson by chance?


Obrigada!

Obrigada pelo comentรกrio.

In the PDF you say that s is [s] after a consonant and give the example of casa, but isn't that more like [z]?

Oi Lisa,


I've checked the PDF and it's working fine.

Please delete the cache of your browser and try again, this usually solve the issue.

Please let me know if you still have this issue.


Thank you for your comment,
