De Frente Com Gabi: Improve your Portuguese listening skills

For the last 6-9 months I have been listening to these interviews with a Brazilian talk-show host called Marília Gabriela. Each interview is about 40 minutes long. She has interviewed many people over the years so the chances are that she has interviewed some of your favourite Brazilian celebrities. It is certainly a very helpful way to learn how to understand spoken Portuguese at the same time as hearing famous Brazilians speaking in their native language... you get a much better feel for their personalities than when you see them speak English, or when their interviews are translated.

Some celebrities that you may know:

Brazil and Barcelona Footballer, Neymar: Brazil's World Cup 2014 coach, Luiz Felip Scolari (aka "Felipao"): F1 driver, Felipe Massa: Former Men's Tennis player, Gustavo Kuerten: Filmstar and musican, Seu Jorge (

Hello, I'm Brazilian and I can help everyone who want ~I am learning english, soooo If u don't understand I'm sorry~ I think that the students of portuguese need to watch Globo Novels because they use a language most informal and here we don't use the formal language normally... We costum to use a slang (gíria) and the people don't conjugate the verbs... Beijosss !

Just a little heads up, the more common way is "Tudo bem?" In Portuguese. If you wish to just say "How are you!", then most likely you would say "Como está", with no s because "estás" is the tu form of the verb, and many people do not use tu in Brazil.

wrong some places in north and northeast and people from south use tu. but most places in brasil use você intead tu.

como estás is correct but not most common in most regions of Brazil. in other countries is more usual.

It was a great show, good atmosphere, and high-ranking guests, from Luan Santana to Eike Batista, there were so many interesting people. I also liked "Programa do Jô" a lot, he was the more humorstic guy, can I say a Brazilian version of "Late Show with David Letterman"? Jô Soares also had a huge range of illustrous people on his sofa: The Portuguese Fado singer Ana Moura, Bruna Surfistinha or the entertainer Faustão.
