FINISHED MY PORTUGUESE TREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hooray!!!!!!! Woohoooooo!!!! I have finished my Portuguese tree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Learning Portuguese on Duolingo has been an absolutely incredible experience! I just have to thank the Portuguese team for making such an incredible course and creating such thorough notes to go along with it. This is my fifth tree (after French, German, Irish, and Swedish), and I would like to share some of my thoughts about this language compared to others! Portuguese has been one of the easiest languages for me to learn. It took me only about two and a half months (I think)! I can see close similarities between Portuguese and both French and English, which makes it an easier language to learn. The notes that go along with the lessons in the course have been really helpful, too! I also need to thank the people who have been extremely helpful along the way. I don't know what I would have done without your advice and tips! Now that I have finished the course, I need to find some good ways to practice. I have been reading the online version of Jornal do Brazil, and I am planning on starting translating in the immersion section. If anyone else has other suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them! Again, thank you so much to the Portuguese team for a great course!

Parabéns!!!

Conheço um americano que me indicou estes podcasts:

1) Portuguese learning - Awesome site: http://coerll.utexas.edu/brazilpod/

2) Conversa Brasileira teaches Portuguese awesomely

3) Tá Falado is a Portuguese for Spanish Speakers Podcast

4) Brazilian Portuguese Pod was a good one, but they don't seem to be online anymore.

5) Here's another one I found, but don't know how quality it is: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/learn-portuguese-brazilianpodclass/id261185732?mt=2

6) Som Pra Viagem is one with interviews with upcoming musicians that is really good but to understand it you need to be at at least an intermediate level: http://tunein.com/radio/Som-Pra-Viagem-Podcast-BR-p362247/

But I have never heard any of them cause I'm brazilian. xD

Good luck bro (Break a leg?)

Notes? What notes are you talking about? I barely encounter notes in this tree. And parabéns!

April 11, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Super-Svensk

Obrigado! Some lessons on the tree have grammar notes to go with them. Although other courses may have more notes, the notes that the Portuguese tree does have are very helpful.

There are a LOT of notes and tips on the web version (not the app) as well as forum style discussions that go along with every single exercise

I know, they added a lot of notes over time. There were almost no notes when I wrote that post though.

Ah Sim. Sometimes I forget to look at when these posts were made. Sounds like Duolingo has changed a lot over time

lindo maravilhoso! I'm learning it too but I'm on a baby level. I'm noticing a lot of similarities with Spanish that's helping speed up the process. Hope to join your ranks soon!

April 12, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Super-Svensk

Obrigado! I would like to learn Spanish, but I'm afraid that I'll get confused. Do you get confused at all between the two?

April 12, 2015

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

Well, after German, I got Italian (and Italian is quite Portuguese, so it was way easy).

Now I'm doing French, and I have that same fear....if I get crazy, I tell you. That's why I'm holding back Spanish for a while (although I can comunicate easily if I don't have to talk much).

April 13, 2015

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bellisima.18

I won't say I get confused but sometimes I get frustrated with the pronunciation. For example one word may mean the same in both languages, be so similar yet pronounced differently sooo I have to keep reminding myself it's an adjustment

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ThePhantomKid01

Parabéns! I know it took a lot of time and a lot of hard work, so I gave you a Lingot! Like some people have said, I would recommend doing the reverse (English for Portuguese Speakers), or do Spanish. There are many similarities between Spanish and Portuguese, (and yes, sometimes you will get mixed up between the two, but you won't be completely thrown off track) but it's going to be pretty easy to learn since you learned Portuguese. Again, parabéns! :D

Well done! It took me a whole year to finish my tree, but I found it hard. I keep revising and hoping that more will stay in my mind. I dare not try another language as I think I'd only get confused.
