Lesson 10 (Series 2) – The One With The Sweets

Lesson 10 (Series 2) – The One With The Sweets

Portuguese people love to shop. Marlon’s mom sees to be in the supermarket pretty much every day. So, here’s a small portion of the lesson we created for our member’s only program, which happens, you guessed it, in the supermarket. Enjoy!

We’re also creating a membership program. We’re calling it “Carla’s Babies” (more information on the podcast itself). Even though part of the lessons will be free for all, just like before, members will have access to:

  • Full Lesson featuring:
    • Longer scenes
    • Exercises 
    • Vocabulary

This new series will focus on

    • Day to day conversation
    • Pronunciation
    • Oral and written understanding. 

On top of that, in each lesson, we will work a particular grammar point, although you probably won’t notice at all.

Above and beyond the regularly released video lessons, members will also have access to:

  • Carla, for language related questions
  • Forum
  • Extra fun stuff (to be announced)

This is something we’re mentioning to listeners only and won’t be advertised or otherwise publicised anywhere else. But if you put your name down on the list, you will be given a chance of getting in early for a discounted price. The Invitation will go out very soon. We have hundreds of people on the list but only a few spots will be made available. Be quick 🙂

Obrigado a todos.

P.S: Have you had a look at our new T-Shirt range? (All creative kudos go to Héber Medina)


M – Mulher, tu não me digas…

C – Não! Então, não sabes aquela minha colega que para a semana vai dar à luz?

M – Ah, poça! Esqueci-me. Pregaste-me cá um susto! Achei que tínhamos combinado que 5 já chegavam!

C – O que é isto, Márlon?! (Gomas escondidas por baixo das outras compras)

M- Nada!

C – Dá-me isso!

M – Não.

C – Dá-me isso!

M – Não.

C – Não tínhamos combinado que não compravas mais doces?

M – Não me lembro dessa conversa…

C – Dá cá!

M – Não!

    Hi Carla and Marlon
    I’ve just come back from a one-week vacation in Lisbon (first time). I rented an apartment, toured the city and the area, and enjoyed every moment there. Although I was a tourist, I felt at home – mostly because I was able to communicate in Portuguese most of the time.
    A year ago I completed an entire Portuguese course in Duolingo, but it was far from being enough to really learn the language. So a few weeks before I went to Portugal I had looked for European Portuguese lessons online, and luckily I found you guys 🙂
    I have to tell you that even though I managed to complete less than 30 podcasts (of the first series), it made such a big difference, and helped me A LOT in speaking and understanding Portuguese. I used it everywhere I could, and even took the guided tour *in Portuguese* to the câmera obscura do Castelo são Jorge.
    So thank you very much for all your wonderful podcasts, they are really the best way to learn Portuguese online. I’m looking forward to becoming one of Carla’s babies 🙂
    Keep up your wonderful work!

    Wow. That’s really nice of you to say Yaniv.
    Well, we’re really happy that you find these helpful and we’re busy building more content all the time.

    Keep it up. 🙂

    Hi Carla and Marlon! Thanks for writing this interesting article. I like your site so much that I included it in an article I wrote called Top Online Tutors for Learning Brazilian Portuguese (See article link here: http://vidalingua.com/blog/top-online-tutors-learning-brazilian-portuguese.html).
    Keep up the great work!
