Lesson 2 - Portuguese With Carla Podcast

Free Audio Course – Lesson 2

In this second free portuguese lesson in our course we show you what asking for directions in portuguese sounds like.

Also, a brief introduction to numbers and a few extra tidbits. In our science section, Marlon talks about the brain plasticity and how an understanding of it can help you learn a new language so much faster.

Any questions or observations, just leave a comment.

    Thank you for podcast! I enjoy practicing Portuguese with you.
    I am in Lisbon but use mostly English. You inspire me to force myself to practice more Portuguese.

      Thank you for your comment! I’m very pleased to know i’m inspiring you to practice harder 🙂
      If possible, try to watch Portuguese tv, read books, listen to Portuguese music, etc. Basically, expose yourself to the language as much as possible. It may be hard to start with, but without you realising you will learn a lot!
