Portuguese gains new learners because of one song....
I will learn Portuguese. This beautiful song by Portuguese singer Salvador Sobral has convinced me. And clearly I'm not the only one. Other commenters on the music video say:
– "I'm seriously considering hopping on Duolingo and learning some Portuguese."
– "Portuguese language sounds like music already."
– "I will buy my tickets to go to Portugal next year!"
Art is powerful.
Enjoy listening to the song. The lyrics are shown in English and Portuguese side by side
