Como Falam os Nossos Membros?

Today, the tables have turned, because YOU, (our listeners) are the main voices of this special episode! European Portuguese learners from around the world bravely submitted recordings of themselves reading our featured Shorty, “Um Encontro“.

We listen to each one, while suggesting subtle improvements for perfecting their pronunciation, including some challenging vowel sounds, and rules of the letter “S”, and more.

A BIG “thank you” to everyone who bravely submitted their recordings. Let us know if you enjoy this and we’ll do more of this in future episodes!
(Learn more about the pronunciation of the letter “S” here: The Letters “S” and “C”)


  • Boa noite ! Rui e Joel
    Your comments on my recording were very helpful .

    I really rate your language program !
    Thank you so very much
    Kind regards

  • Olá, bom dia.

  • Muito interesante e instrutivo. Parabéns para quem fazerem gravações. Foram muito boa. Eu não tivesse coragem.
    Eu teria muito sorte a falar tão bem a ser entendido por gente portugueses. Há quarenta cinco anos, eu aprendei português por a prima vez no Brasil. (Por um ano, fui Professor Visitante de Geologia no U. São Paulo.) Infelizmente tenho esquecido quase todo, antes de eu encontrei o ano passado . Mas, a pronúncia brasileiro de “s”, “o”, e ultima “e” na palavras como “hoje” “grande”, “cidade”, etc. parece ser “hard wired” no meo cérebro.
    Muito obrigado por a sua ajuda – Jay

  • Fantastic podcast, thanks so much fellas!
    It’s really great to be exploring pronunciation at such a detailed level, and the section about cadence was really useful.
    There’s a quote somewhere that “feedback is the breakfast of champions”. It’s certainly true in this case; you guys pointed out a couple of things I wasn’t even aware I was doing.
    Thanks again and best wishes to all the other learners out there!
