The Ultimate Pronunciation Guide - Brazilian Portuguese

Enrolment for this course will open in late January 2021.

Course Summary

Imagine you are at a bakery in Brazil. You're ordering some delicious homemade bread - and you know that the word pão but when you say it, it sounds like pau. Pau means "wooden stick", but it can also mean other things, some of which are a bit rude😜. The person behind the counter looks at you funny, but they eventually realize that you're after pão, not pau! You quickly learn that proper pronunciation is just as important as accurate vocabulary!

In this course we will work on the building blocks of standard Brazilian Portuguese by practicing the key sounds through special assignments. You'll receive personalised feedback from me, so you can pronounce every Portuguese word accurately and with confidence.
