…sooo helpful!

Name: Ms. Barbara L

I’ve been searching for a place to hear European Portuguese and am so happy I finally found this website and course! It’s awesome — interesting topics, adorable guys (Rui and Joel), sooo helpful! I don’t understand all of it by any means, but gradually I’m able to hear more and more. By the way, long ago I taught French, and I do love learning languages, but spoken Portuguese (European) was particularly difficult to understand despite knowing French, Spanish and a bit of Italian. The grammar and vocabulary are easy for me, and now — yay! — I should be able to converse in Portuguese — not just speak, but understand answers. Muito obrigada, Rui e Joel!

I was looking for a way to practice portuguese for so long (always just finding courses for brazilian portuguese). Now im so happy i found your podcast! I would like to use the premium features, but i dont have a credit card, would be so great if you could add paypal to your paying options! But anyway: muito obrigado para este podcast!

Finally some European Portuguese for someone who’s not an absolute beginner. Subtitles and quiz are very nice little extras if you sign up. Definitely recommend.

Finally a great resource to improve understanding and pronunciation as spoken in Portugal. You do have to know some basic Portuguese, this is not for true beginners. But, it is great to get ready to visit Portugal and be able to communicate in their language.

Muito Obrigado

This was a really happy discovery – a great tool to develop my listening skills of European Portuguese. It really doesn’t matter how basic your understanding is yet, it really is helpful in getting you to develop. I’ve noticed my progress over just a few podcasts. And they’re hilarious! I love the conversations with Rui’s grandmother. I strongly strongly recommend the podcasts! Really glad I found this, guys.

I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

Best source for European Portuguese

Name: Andrew H.

This podcast is the best source I’ve found for European Portuguese conversation. I love that it’s not boring repetition of words and phrases, but rather actual conversations between native and non-native speakers. Plus they’re super funny, especially Rui who I suspect must be an actor on the side because of all the (hilarious) roles he plays in the conversations. Thanks Rui & Joel!
