Portuguese Book Club?
So I don't know much about it but I know other languages like Italian have book clubs where they find online books in the language and read them in a certain period of time. Anyways, I was just wondering if people were interested in doing this for Portuguese.
(also I'm new to discussion so I don't know if I'm doing this right.)
I think that it's a good idea. Despite my Portuguese is not so cool to read any books now, I'd like to try to do it later.
Also I'm looking for simple texts to translate, stories for children or something like that, maybe anyone can share it?
What a great link! Thanks! Still a little beyond me , I just started three weeks ago, but should be there soon!
In addition to using Duolingo and BrazilPod online, I've been watching Brazilian bedtime stories on YouTube. I started with one called A Flauta da Tartaruga on the third day after starting to learn Portuguese. I hardly recognized anything but could get a basic gist of the story from the pictures. What's really great about the company that makes these (bookboxinc) is that they're meant to tech Brazilian children how to read so there are same language subtitles which are highlighted as each word is spoken. Now 20 days later, I can follow the whole story and pick up a lot of the others as well https://youtu.be/cGXcEP37B3s
Thank you!! I found this info to be very helpful. Have been looking for childrens books as a way to strengthen my speaking skills.
Hi Guys. Eu sou brasileiro e quero aprender inglês. Eu tenho dificuldades em falar em Inglês, eu acho o áudio do Duolingo um pouco limitado, é uma voz robótica. Eu tenho muitos amigos brasileiros que têm o mesmo problema. Eu estava pensando eu criar um grupo no whatsapp para troca de áudio. Comunicação básica em Inglês e Português? O que acham? Whatsapp é só uma sugestão, idéias de outras plataformas são bem vindas.

Oi. Tenho aprendado português desde fevereiro, sou ainda no início. Acho que practicamos em Whatsapp ou Skype é uma muita boa idéia. Quero participar! (E por favor, corrige meu português)
I would like to do this! How can we arrange it (I am a native English speaker).
Hi Alex, please, send your whatsapp number to me. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org Seu texto corrigido. Oi, Tenho aprendido português desde fevereiro, estou no inicio ainda. Acho que se praticarmos no Whatsapp ou skype seria uma ideia muito boa. Quero participar! Seu português está muito bom!
Na verdade o audio é excelente. Apesar de que falo inglês toda minha vida tomei o curso por curiosidade. Pode ser que a gente não esta acostumado ouvir alguém falar assim.
I'm so excited! I can't believe I almost entendou todos suas palavras! Eu estudo Português por tres semanas! Eu leio muito melhor. Não escrevo bom ainda.
Oi AlexisN8, boa sorte com o seu aprendizado. Se tiver alguma dúvida ou precisar de ajuda com o português, pode contar comigo.
@Dan, I've been reading for a few weeks. Everyday when I get home I read a few pages and plan to keep reading strictly Portuguese at home until December. I've already mapped out and have my books already. How are you planning to run this club and how books will even be chosen since we all have different taste e.g my current book is operação de família and planning uns de Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Harry Potter, Twilight , divergent, fifty shades of gray etc ;). All in Portuguese of course so it'll be a rocky ride ;).
Oh I wasn't really sure if I was going to start/run one myself I was more just wondering if there was interest/ anyone who would like to start one haha
I don't mind it but I'd be more inclined if it is a good series idk Lord of the rings, maze runner, children of dune etc :). I use the same site as geneconnor. I upload to my Google books.
read the book "memorias postumas de bras cubas" by Marchado de Assis. it's better of the classic novel.
tenho seus livros mas primeiro tenho vontade de ler cinqüenta tons de cinza, maze runner, série duna e memórias de minha putas tristes kkkkkk ;).
