Finished your Portuguese tree? Time for Bliu Bliu.

I just found this website today, thanks to user buck72 on the German forum, but I'm already a fan. The website is paid but has lots of free functions (that have a limit of time to be used, but after a while they're available again, not really an issue).

From my first experience (using it for my German) it seems a great continuation for my Duolingo studies. It basically shows you short texts where you can mark the easy and difficult words, and new texts come up according to your level of knowledge. The length of these texts, compared to the short sentences of Duolingo, pulls you to a new level of linguistic complexity. Audio versions are also available for each text (sometimes there are even videos, here is one that explains you the website

Finally for the eternal discussion about PT-PT and PT-BR, Bliubliu offers both choices, which probably makes sense on this level of learning, so you can focus on the accent and way of speak of your preference after learning the basics on Duolingo.

Bom estudo!

This is a really great site, I'm now using it for my [Brazilian] Portuguese, and my Chinese. Also, freshening up on my Albanian! It's a really cool site, and so far (I started 15 minutes ago) it has been really helpful!

It also works for Norwegian by the way ;) They have more than 100 languages on their list, but I guess the best content (videos) can only be found on what they call "popular languages" (Lithuanian among them, it is after all a Lithuanian website), unfortunately Portuguese is not yet on the popular list, but at least it's not in beta, like most of the languages are.

That's very useful to know as I'm like three skills away from being done with my Norwegian tree, lol. Although I do want to continue Portuguese at some point and probably will start over with that once I finish up here with Norwegian. I looked at the site briefly but later I'll really look through it and see all it has to offer. I've got it bookmarked! Thanks again :D

Thank you again for showing it to me. It's now on my top3, together with Duolingo and ;) They all complement each other.

Thanks for sharing, hopefully, it receives more upvotes so that more people learn of it as an additional resource.

Found the site over an external website hint. Nice suggestion!

Funny that this has already been brought up multiple times in multiple threads on the DuoLingo discussion forums.

To be honest: I never stumbled across any of those threads when I was reading the past 40 days.
This IMHO clearly is an indicator actually how bad the forum layout and display / search functionality are and that threads almost go to nirvana once they are older...

There is also no "display updated threads" sorted by date descending functionality.
Even when I post here the update will not be pushed to a "updated threads" register...
