just out of curiosity.


If I sign up for premium and get a teacher, do I get to choose the region of the teacher (if the teacher has a carioca accent or Paulista accent, etc?)

Thanks

Ahhh ! My country was colonized by the French so some of these are actually easy to pronounce.

Hi Pet,


As for the different types of Brazilian accents/modes of pronunciation, we still don't have a special lesson on that subject, but you can check out this series to improve your skills:

https://www.portuguesepod101.com/lesson-library/ultimate-portuguese-pronunciation-guide/


This lesson has a special focus on the pronunciation for the letter -r in different regions of Brazil:

https://www.portuguesepod101.com/lesson/absolute-beginner-20-brazilian-accents/


As for "tudo", it is an indefinite pronoun and it means "everything", "all". For example: "Tudo o que eu quero é (...)" (All I want is...); "Todo" can mean "the whole", "entirety", for example: "Ele comeu o bolo todo." ("He eat the whole cake.").


Cheers,

Cristiane
