Want to learn
You've come to the right place
Hello and welcome to my website!
I believe one of the best ways to learn a language is to have fun with it.
Of course, there is a place for traditional, structured learning, but the real learning happens when you are actually enjoying yourself, when learning doesn’t feel like a chore.
I learned English without leaving Brazil, never having visited an English-speaking country before. I was fortunate to have been able to take English classes, but I think the main reason why I learned it so fast was because I loved watching films and TV series in English and listen to music by American and British artists. By doing that I learned ‘real’ English, as opposed to the English in contrived dialogues that you normally get in coursebooks.
So, what can you expect from my aptly titled Fun With Brazilian Portuguese website (or FWBP for short)?
- Videos and posts showing you how Brazilians speak in real life, all the quirks of colloquial, everyday Brazilian Portuguese expressions, pronunciation, slang, grammar (and how flexible it becomes when applied to real conversation).
- Brazilian songs with the original lyrics and their English translation – with an explanation of interesting expressions used in them.
- Quizzes to test and expand your vocabulary.
- FWBP Academy – Although just recently set up, there are already two free courses you can enrol on: Pronunciation Hacks (Improve Your Pronunciation in 5 Days) and Making Social Contact (Start a Conversation with Brazilians with Confidence).
Now go and explore FWBP!
And get in contact if you have any questions, comments or just want to say ‘Oi’!
