    • Olá Sandra! Thanks for the question and for your support as a premium member! We’ve been having some trouble with the new audio player in some browsers – is it possible for you to try them out in Chrome to see if that helps? Obrigado!

  • Hi Joel and Rui, thanks for these amazing and invaluable podcasts.
    As a new learner to Portuguese, I’m finding the dialogues, the explanations, and the light banter very instructive, and also a lot of fun to listen to!
    Many thanks,
