Accents in Brazil...
I've posted a discussion but I couldnt find it anywhere :(
So, I'll post here again:
I posted this thread in order to colect some musics of different bands to show you some different accents you may find in here. In conversation the difference is clearer. Hope you can get the difference listening to that ;)Then you decide the one that sounds better for you: (ohh... my preference is rock)

How is the accent on this program? is it accurate and close to any of these accents?
Sincerily.... the robot voice is not THAT good so i cant tell oyou 100% sure what accent they're using. Surely its the Brazilian one, not the Portuguese.... i find it very similar to the region where I live (São Paulo). I understand what the robot says pretty well and im sure if you follow that you'll be understood in almost every corner in Brazil ;) also in Portugal...
Who are the ones that pronounce the "rr" and "r" like the "j" in spanish or the "h" in english in almost all the words that have "r" and "rr" whether they are at the beginning, at the middle or at the end of the word??? I cannot tell the difference in this audios... And I know that in some regions they have the same sound for "rr" and "r" than the "r" in spanish or english (mainly if it is at the beginning and the end).
of course sounds like "j" (spanish) or "h" (english) for as long as the "r" (portuguese) is not between vowels :) or in the form consonant-"r"-vowel ;)
I was wondering from which region does DUO teach PT from; Lexicon from the northern parts or southern (Rio vs. SP)?
