Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone.
Welcome to The Ultimate Portuguese Pronunciation Guide.
You've made it to the last lesson! Do you feel more confident about speaking in Portuguese now?
In this last lesson, we'll wrap things up by quizzing you on the material that we've covered in this series.
Let's practice!
Make sure to practice out loud with this lesson!
You know all the parts and pieces, but can you speak Portuguese with a natural accent?
If you've been quiet up until now, be sure to speak out loud with (host name)!
Are you ready? Let's go!
You probably knew this phrase before you started this series, but did you know how to pronounce it correctly?
Give it a shot!
Olha para cima. - Look up.
Did you pronounce this sound correctly?
It should sound like an L and a Y sound. Remember, you want to use the middle part of the tongue to contact the roof of your mouth.
Olha para cima. - Look up.
If you still haven't got it, go back to lesson 6 to review the material.
What about this next one?
atenção - attention
Did you pronounce the diphthong correctly?
We covered this sound in lesson 7. Remember, since it's a nasal dipthong you should pronounce it through the nose.
Listen to it again.
atenção - attention
Okay. Let's move on.
Where is the stress in this example?
aranha - spider
Since this word ends with a vowel that *isn't* an I or a U, the stress will be on the second last syllable.
aranha - spider
Here's the last one.
Where is the stress in this example?
matemática - mathematics
Accents are good indications of stress. Since this has the acute accent, it indicates that the syllable should be stressed and that it requires an open pronunciation.
matemática - mathematics
How did it go? Do you feel like you have a better accent than you did at the beginning of this series?
What parts of Portuguese Pronunciation are still difficult for you?
Good luck as you continue learning Portuguese! Bye!
