Olá Patrick,


Thank you for posting.


In case the person you're speaking to is speaking too fast, you could also ask him/her to speak slower so you can understand them better. 👍


Our audio lessons at our Lesson Library:

https://www.portuguesepod101.com/lesson-library/absolute-beginner


Allow adjusting the audio speed by clicking on the ‘1x’ button next to the volume control icon (you can choose either 0.75x or 0.5x to slow it down).


Please also check out these series to improve your listening skills:

After 4 years and 4 months of studying Portugues and 14 trips to Brasil I still can’t understand people when they speak Portuguese. I just returned from a month in Brasil and had to use a translator and have them write. I have had my hearing tested and its ok. I talk with a Brasilian everyday for 1-3 hours and have for 16 months now but I haven’t been able to converse yet because I can’t understand the friend. I had a Brasilian girlfriend for 4 years but she would only speak English with me because I couldn’t understand her when she spoke Portugues. I can’t understand the Portuguesepod101 audios. All of my classes have been in English because I can’t understand the teacher yet. Any ideas? I’ve tried many things. Thanks
