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:
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).

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
