Artigo 23 – António Guterres, A Unir Nações

António Guterres, Uniting Nations

A few days ago, Joel overheard some enthusiastic Portuguese natives talking about how António Guterres had been chosen as the new secretary-general of the United Nations. So in this episode, we take the opportunity to explore António’s life and the experiences that led up to this proud moment in Portugal’s history!


  • Gostei muito deste episódio. A tema é interessante para mim. Mas também porque agora consigo comprender e cantar o hino nacional inteiro! Até agora, não entendi as palavras “Que há-de guiar-te à vitória.” Há-de…??? Este episódio ensinou-me sobre “haver de,” muito obrigada! 🙂

  • I enjoyed this podcast very much; politics is all over the news, newspapers, magazines etc. in Portugal, so podcasts on political subjects are very relevant to life in Portugal, and something citizens and residents should (at least) be aware of, and maybe better participate in Portuguese life.

    Thanks for covering some of the unique terms, words (“cargo” vs. “Carga”, por exemplo) and meanings in this subject!

    Best Regards,
