Muito obrigado! Thank you very much for visiting PortuguesePod101.com! Our Survival Phrases are perfect for first time visitors to Brazil. Do you have plans to visit Brazil in the near future?

Oi Patrick,


What about this Survival Phrases series? Were you able to understand?

That's our first step.


You also need to "train" your ear to get used to Portuguese, but that's something that happens with practice.

Also, try to think in Portuguese. A good tip is to try to talk about your chores in Portuguese. For example, when you're cooking, try to say the recipe in Portuguese in your head: Eu vou cozinhar dois ovos. (I'll cook two eggs.)

Or "Eu vou dormir ร s 9 da noite." (I'll go to sleep at 9pm).


Good luck on your next visit! And we hope we can help you to improve your communication there!

After studying for over 5 years and visiting Brasil 16 times I still canโ€™t converse or understand what people are saying. I study and practice every day with my girlfriend who only speaks Portuguese but I have to use a translator to understand her. I use books, teachers, Duolingo, Semantica, apps, movies and videos and tried PortuguesePod101 but I couldnโ€™t understand what the people were saying. I canโ€™t translate fast enough to understand. I have to have my girlfriend write what she says so I can use a translator. Weโ€™ve been doing that for over 2 years now. What can I do to learn enough to not need to translate? Iโ€™m going back to Brasil in 2 days for another month but if its like the last 16 times I wont be able to converse or understand what people are saying.Thanks

Hi Gata,


Thank you for your feedback. Weโ€™ll consider your feedback for our future development.


Please also check out this series:

https://www.portuguesepod101.com/lesson-library/absolute-beginner-portuguese-for-every-day/

The lessons are with our female host and many examples are given of vocabulary in the feminine gender.


For example, this lesson has "Obrigada.", which is used by female speakers to say "Thank you.":

Iโ€™m a new user, and I love the lessons you do, but itโ€™s disappointing that the male form is often taught as the default, and frustrating that - as in this lessom - no mention of the feminine is even made. This leaves your female learners having to go look up the feminine form themselves in all the lessons where this happens. As a paying user, I would expect more equality for your customers.


I know teaching the male perspective is historically standard in teaching languages with gender, but society is moving beyond this - it would be great if your lessons reflected it. Your female customers would at least appreciate it.

Iโ€™ve just logged in to my account and I see that itโ€™s Brazilian Portuguese. I will be traveling and living in Portugal. Is there a Portugal Portuguese version?


Thanks.
