Deixo a sugestão para adicionar um thread mais completo sobre a formatação das mensagens no Duolingo e outro thread sobre particípios regulares/irregulares e português brasileiro x português europeu.

E foi uma ótima ideia reunir todos os assuntos mais procurados num só lugar. =)

Hello, I'm brazilian. Wanna practice portuguese with me and help me to improve my english?

June 23, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Stoneybrook

Oi Thiagoo - Happy to help with your English. I am from NZ and I going to visit Brazil at the end of this year so I also need the practice!

i wouldn't mind joining in, but then i'd kind of prefer skype to whatsApp (i'm never too keen to give out my private phone number ;) ).. what is the majority using?

July 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dungna93

It would be good for me too if you are willing to use skype. I'm in need of a tutor in Portuguese. Can you help me with it?

I am learning Portuguese myself, so I'm afraid I wouldn't be such a great help for you ;)

In fact, it would still be good for us if we make a study pair, we can hence share thoughts on Portuguese grammar from the view of non-native learners. I'm studying Portuguese solely from Duolingo and a book on Brazillion Portuguese grammar written in English. If you are interested, have a talk with me sometime :D

Definitely a post about vowel reduction would fit like a glove in this thread.

August 19, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Danmoller

What do you mean by vowel reduction? Pronunciation tips?

August 19, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexKarampas

Well....Kind of, yes. It's fairly straightforward from what I reckon. vowel reduction is when a vowel is reduced from its full quality to a more "generic" sound, it changes in ways. This happens all the time in BP, no?

when do you use "BOA" in a sentence? and" BOM" or "BEM?

October 29, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sharkbbb

These words belong to two distinct groups.

1) Adjectives, which qualify nouns and must follow their gender and number:

  • bom menino (masculine singular)
  • bons meninos (masculine plural)
  • boa menina (feminine singular)
  • boas meninas (feminine plural)

2) Adverbs, which qualify verbs or adjectives or other adverbs:

  • está bem
  • menino bem alto
  • meninos bem altos
  • menina bem alta
  • meninas bem altas
  • está bem aqui

Yes, there is an animal that seems to like it, the "seal".

  • Let's seal the door so the air can't pass through = Vamos selar a porta para que o ar não passe
  • And seals cannot pass though sealed doors as well = E as focas não podem passar por portas seladas também
  • A foca foca no seu objetivo (The seal focuses on its goal)

Ahahaha vladimir? i am not vladimir, my name is Vlad ( Ladislav, Ladislao ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladislav Vladimir is a Russian name, and Vladislav is a Slavic name, these are two different names, and I'm not Russian, I live in western Ukraine near Poland, when you see the Slovene name you think it's Russian, the Slovaks are Czechs, Slovaks, Slovene, Poles, Belarusians , Croats, Ukrainians. Why did I ask for the Russian language? Because Ukrainian content does not develop but my native language is Ukrainian. English i know level A2.

please am having a big challenge hearing what people say in portuguese, i started learning via duolingo 2 months ago. Now i can speak and write on a average but i cannot here what people say to me even in the duolingo, it seems too fast for me and i am worried, i am on 42% yet i cannot hear people are saying. what can i do?

November 4, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/argovela

Don't get discouraged, what you are experiencing is perfectly normal. It takes a while to understand a foreign language... the melody, the way the sounds flow, the words, as well as the various accents. There's no need to be worried. Personally, I don't think two months is quite enough to have developed a great deal of aural comprehension. Give it a little more time.

My advice is to keep studying, keep making progress on duoLingo, but also supplement your exposure to the spoken language by listening to podcasts, YouTube, and music. Be patient -- it'll come. One day you'll listen to a sentence, a song, or something else that you've listened to before and which you've had trouble understanding... and you'll suddenly realize that you now understand it! It's a great feeling!

Boa sorte e bons estudos!

I’ve been studying Portuguêse for 4.5 years and can’t read, write, converse or understand spoken Portuguêse yet. I’ve been to Brasil 14 times and had a Brasilian girlfriend for 4 years but she wouldn’t speak Portuguêse with me because I didn’t understand her. I practice every day and speak with Brasilians every day but I have to translate everything. It’s frustrating. Any ideas?

But European answers are meant to be accepted in this course, so if you see any that is not, please report it :)

October 27, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/akshan

Really? so, if I write "chamo-me", "tenho medo de cão", "vejo-a" or "ajudar-me-á", Duolingo accepts it? )))) yeah, I know that "ajudar-me-á" is not a common thing in Portuguese day-by-day speech as well, but anyway,,,, ))

These "are Brazilian" formal Portuguese as well :)

December 14, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VinniePine

No Brasil as mesóclises são mais utilizadas em textos filosóficos, jurídicos ou em poesia. Usá-las no dia a dia, em conversas informais com os amigos, pode soar pedante. É excesso de formalidade. É como se alguém que fala inglês falasse em linguagem shakespeareana o tempo todo.

January 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MIDNIGHT12.00

I am Brazilian, and it doesn't sound strange for me because here in Brazil we sometimes say this statements, and the most important it's we learned that at school.

March 26, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EPOSantos

Geralmente se fala mais desse jeito no Sul do país, dificilmente alguém usa 'tu', 'vossa', 'teu', etc...

May 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Luis_Domingos

It should be (at least that's our final goal - to accept all EP possible answers in tandem with BP); if you see a sentence that doesn't do that yet, please report it to help us make the course better.

"Ajudar-me-á" is not common only because people don't know how to use the grammar correctly :P I'm trying to add the mesoclitics to any sentence I can find where it should have one, but since we have 10.000 it's always going to be a work in progress :)

P.S. Little BP vs. EP difference: we (in EP) always [or at least in most occasions] use the plural when we're talking about a plural noun in general terms; "Tenho medo de cães" would sound better to a Portuguese national than "de cão" for that reason.

Good luck with your studies :)

obrigadíssimo, Luís! )) espero que um dia Duolingo adicione também áudio com PT-EU. Então este curso de português vai ser completo e perfeito )))

De nada, Pavel! Sim, a possibilidade de escolher uma voz em português europeu (e substituir a voz de português brasileiro por outra bem melhor) é algo que nós gostaríamos de mudar no futuro, mas infelizmente essas decisões são tomadas apenas pela sede em Pittsburgh, não por nós.

Entretanto, pode(s) sempre utilizar o site IVONA (https://www.ivona.com/) - apesar de não ser perfeito, têm lá duas vozes em português europeu com uma boa qualidade na maioria das palavras e que pode servir como substituto se quiser(es) treinar um pouco a audição da língua.

Continuação de bons estudos :)

We should be able to put are own examples copy past work from other courses movies and weblinks in. After approval it should be accepted. It would speed up the languages. Now a very small amount of people create the course. Contribution like this helps all of us.

Under "Report Problems" It says, "For sentence translations, please use the regular report button in each exercise". The "regular report button" no longer allows users to type an explanation of the problem. In the past, I'd reported many, many instances of either incorrect or inadequate translations. Most commonly, a phrasal translation should have been included in the Dictionary Hints, but only word-by-word translations were given, leaving the user lacking a way to learn how a sentence or phrase should go together, except to get it wrong and try to remember the correct answer. After going through every Portuguese lesson several times, it doesn't seem like any (or few) corrections I had suggested were ever made. Having completed the lesson trees for German and Spanish, I can say that the Dictionary Hints for those languages are much better at providing complete information about how to say a phrase, and good Tips and Notes sections at the beginning of the chapters. It's great to have this thread with all kinds of information and help, but I wonder if DL would do a usability assessment of the Portuguese course.

July 16, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Danmoller

It's really unfair to suggest the Porguese course doesn't have goot tips and notes.

July 16, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/johnpatdou

True, there are good Tips and Notes for the Portuguese tree, and I'm sorry if that part of my comment was offensive. Since I split my studies between the online version and the app version, though, I would like it if there was a link to the T&N on the app (if there is T&N on the app, and I'm just missing it, how do you get to it?).

July 18, 2017

October 26, 2017

By the way, I entered this link you gave, and I found the corrections to have been already made quite a while ago. Is there anything I'm missing?


Hmmmm....

Looking at the "green reports" (the one people report and that our system considers to be already accepted), I've noticed they're pretty new.... a month, a week, etc....

We've probably got an "apostrophe bug" here.... nothing I can do but to call staff (which will certainly take longer and longer ....).

October 26, 2017

I understand that everyone's experience will be different, however, I've found the Portuguese tree to be quite excellent. It's very actively maintained and curated, and the sentence discussions have been extremely helpful to me. In particular, these discussions benefit from some very active and dedicated contributors from whom I've learned an enormous amount. In addition, the supplementary material that can be found in the forum (for which this post is the index) is truly superb.

Despite the difficulties and frustrations you've described I hope you nonetheless are having a good learning experience. I'm sure it's only going to get better! :-)

July 16, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/johnpatdou

I've read a lot of the sentence discussions, and they are good, and thorough. I appreciate that users have taken the time to contribute.

Indeed, my experience has been very good, and I recommend DL to people all the time. I'm just making a suggestion about making it even easier to use.

How do I know when to use "te" or "tu". I've only been using "tu", but I know that it's supposed to be "te amo" and "te ajudo" for example... well why? And are there similar conjuctions for other pronouns as well?

February 11, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/le.ferraz

When you say "Te amo", you mean "I love you". So "Te amo" ou "Te ajudo" it's a short way of saying "Eu te amo" "Eu te ajudo" (with an "eu"). "Te" is a pronoun used for " I do something for you", while Tu=you=você (more usual in brazillian portuguese, easier to conjugate verbs). Portuguese grammar is really hard, even for me, a native speaker lol

hello there. I was wondering why there are no options to view conjugations of verbs and all that with learning Portugese. It would help so much and I started with Spanish a little while ago and there you have the possibility with a new word to view the conjugation of this word. I don't know if this is the right place to ask but, does anybody know if this feature will come? (Or not at all) cause now im just asking google translate for conjugations and thats not very neat.

May 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Danmoller

It seems it's one of those hidden actions staff take from time to time for testing which options affect learning and engaging.

Portuguese used to have conjugations as well (and perhaps part of the users can still see conjugations).

If they've gone missing, it means staff is testing to see the impact of removing this feature from the website.


I know it's not the most practical or comfortable way to do it, but you can always search in a conjugation website: https://www.conjugacao.com.br/

Yesssss totally. "Copo" is the regular cup where we drink water/juice and everything. Now, "xícara" is that small cup where we usually drink tea/coffee, it's really small, like, you don't drink water on it. Here in Brazil we usually drink coffee on those "xícaras".

Sorry to say, but your Portuguese course is a totally disaster. It's really bad. But i can help you, Duolingo, to make it better. I am a native Portuguese speaker, and study this subject for Public Selections, that is extremely hard to pass.

August 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Thiagoo_Chavees

"public selections", you tried to say "contest". It means the admission process to have a job to work for the state, or something similar. Duolingo is good to practice basic vocabulary of different issues. I am also a native speaker of portuguese and Duolingo helped me to improve my english. The method of studying is the same for all the languages.

August 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rogersurf82

Yes, contest! I know that Duolingo helps, but sometimes is really frustrating when you are learning a new language and your answer thats is right appears to you wrong or they simple teach wrong. For example in Portuguese, they really don't know sometimes how to say some verbs

August 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/britte13289

Most people use it as a free source of learning and for that, it's excellent. Duolingo never claims to be a substitute for "real" language schools or courses. And your English is not that great, that I would trust you much more in translation ;) Your last sentence is kind of strange. Which subject do you study? And for which "Public Selections", and is the "subject" extremely hard to pass? Questions over questions ;) The Duolingo course has enabled me to communicate with native speakers on a basic level, and if I really want to get a diploma, I'll do what other people with that goal tend to do - enrol in a language school :)

Sou brasileiro e penso que na escrita as diferenças são mínimas! O que acontece é que algumas regras são frequentemente mais empregadas em um país do que no outro. Mas as duas vertentes são totalmente inteligível para os dois países.. O que muda mais é a pronúncia (algo que também ocorre internamente nesses países, mas em menor grau, com seus regionalismos). O acento de Portugal é mais difícil para nós brasileiros compreendermos. Eles têm uma pronúncia muito consonantal, falam muito rápido, muito fechado e em alguns casos encurtam as palavras (Ex: na palavra “te-le-fo-ne”, alguns portugueses pronunciam “teL-foN”). Mas devido a forte presença da cultura brasileira em Portugal (novelas, músicas, youtubers…), e eles crescerem convivendo com essa cultura, os portugueses conseguem compreender perfeitamente bem a pronuncia brasileira. Afinal, qual dos países alteraram mais a pronunciação do portuguese clássico? Vejam esse vídeo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sDuGRKwguY

Where has this been hiding? I’ve been struggling with this stuff for 4.5 years! It’s been like a secret code. Thanks
