Want to learn
Brazilian Portuguese?

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)?

Now go and explore FWBP!

And get in contact if you have any questions, comments or just want to say ‘Oi’!
