Blending In

I met some South American friends, who actually thought I was Brazilian, when I spoke in Portuguese with a mutual friend who was born in Brazil. They were shocked to learn that I'm a Canadian who has only been learning Portuguese for a few months.

Thank you Duolingo!

Parabêns! Você fala Português muito bem?

I've only been learning for about a month (weekly lessons and Duolingo for about 2 weeks).

Are you just using Duolingo?

Obrigada! Duolingo has been my main source for learning Portuguese. I also bought a book which came with a CD to supplement duo. The book has been a great help in teaching me the rules and obviously explaining the language, because Duo doesn't do that much.

Fixe! Can I ask what book? I only have a couple of Holiday Portuguese books. Obrigado!

Try Gramatica Activa 1 and 2. It is good for all the levels. All the rules are explained in Portuguese, but really, it's the best grammar book I've seen. I used it to prepare for DAPLE exam.

That's Awesome! I just found out about Duolingo last week and started taking lessons in preparation for my trip next month to Brazil for the World Cup. Hopefully, I can get to a point where I understand enough to get me by. Goodluck on your continued learning and I'll hopefully get better like you.

Duolingo ROCKS... I was listening to Marisa Monte in the background, while doing my Duolingo lesson.. it shocked me that I understood. Then I watched Brazilian "TV" on youtube.. also shocked that I understood... it totally works.

That's awesome! I'm going to Brazil too! That is why I started learning Portuguese last August, when that first ticketing phase opened and I applied for tickets. Good luck to you and enjoy the games!

Have you looked on "Meetup.com" for Portuguese speakers, Brazilian expats? My pal ThanKwee (here on Duolingo) has a practice session in Skype. Tell her Richard sent you! :)

I find that Brazilian Portuguese is really easy to pick up, pronunciation wise
