Ready to learn
Brazilian Portuguese?

You've come to the right place


Hi, I’m Fernando Nonohay. I’ve created FWBP as a learning resource for students of Brazilian Portuguese. I believe that learning a language shouldn’t be a chore – it should be fun and exciting. Here you will find blog posts with lots of materials to practice and learn. If you haven’t started learning the language yet, you can try the first Unit of my Brazilian Portuguese Essentials course completely free. Obrigado and enjoy FWBP!

Learn Brazilian Portuguese in short, fun sessions!

  • Phrases and vocabulary you need to be able to communicate effectively in everyday situations in Brazil.
  • Pronunciation tricks to speak in a more natural and confident manner
  • How to understand the way Brazilians really speak in day-to-day colloquial conversation.

This method is very impressive and very effective. There is just the right amount of grammar and phonetics that one needs to learn and progress in Brazilian Portuguese. The lessons are not too long, not too short - just the right length. Most importantly, they cover the basic situations one needs to master to become functional in Brazil.

"Clear, succinct and practical. I'm thoroughly enjoying watching the video lessons and learning a new language! Professor Fernando explains each point very patiently. The slides are cool, and there are notes after each video, so I don't need to jot down anything, just print them and revise for the next lesson."
