Online Brazilian Radio Stations

Listening to online Brazilian radio stations is a great way to practice your Brazilian Portuguese.

Below are just a few that you can try and the last two, radios.com.br and melhoresradios.com.br are actually portals listing hundreds of Brazilian radio stations that you can listen to online.

Do you already listen to Brazilian radio stations as a way to practice your Portuguese? If so, please leave a comment, I’d love to hear which ones you listen to and recommend. Do you have a learning strategy while listening to them, or do you just play them in the background while doing other things?
