Lesson 4 - Portuguese With Carla Podcast

Lesson 4 – Portuguese With Carla Podcast

The 4th lesson in our free portuguese audio course is here. We continue following our imaginary friends on their portuguese holiday. This week they venture into a hotel. What common portuguese expressions will they hear and use? I also introduce you to cardinal numbers.

Also in this lesson:  Research shows that humans store vocabulary in the brain more in the form of a complex web on interdependencies than in the commonly accepted “storage box” fashion.

      Será que quis dizer: “português a mais nestes podcasts”? 😉

      Entendemos como se sente, mas acredite que as coisas melhoram nesse sentido – continue a escutá-los e vai ver que vai aprender mais do que imaginava 🙂

      Hi there,

      these are design for complete beginners. Later podcasts are perhaps a better fit for you.

      Best Regards

    Hi Carla and Marlon, could I ask you to write the numbers into your pod casts please, with numbers in brackets perhaps. I’m really enjoying your podcasts, thank you.

      Hi Briege, sorry for the really late reply. We’ve been crazy busy building our new online program. Anyway…

      Glad you’re enjoying them 🙂
      I see what you mean. Sure, that makes sense. I’ll add that to my to do list. I can’t promise when it will be done, but… it will.


      Hope that helps
