"Podcast Plus" Features:
Read through every podcast episode at your own pace, or follow along as the synchronized transcript scrolls automatically with the audio you're hearing.
By connecting what you're hearing to the Portuguese text, you'll be able to improve your comprehension in European Portuguese, with in the context of real-world, native dialogues.
Listening and comparing your voice to a native speaker's is a great way to notice the differences to improve your pronunciation.
With our built-in voice recording tool and selected audio excerpts, you'll be able to compare your own pronunciation to the original phrases. By noticing and minimizing these differences over time, you'll start to speak more like a Portuguese native!
Note: At the moment, this feature is only available on newer episodes posted after July 2016
With our expressions lists, you'll discover some of the most common Portuguese slang and expressions, (many of which you won't find in a classroom setting!)
Increase your vocabulary by reviewing selected key terms before and after you hear each episode.
Challenge yourself by taking the episode quiz to improve your comprehension and recall skills.
Hey guys! It’s Joel here, the Canadian co-founder of Practice Portuguese.
When I began learning Portuguese in early 2012, it wasn’t long before I realized how few learning materials were available for the language as it’s spoken in Portugal. I looked into apps, Podcasts, websites etc... but everything was Brazilian!
I have nothing against Brazilians, but there are some major differences in their grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation.
That’s why Rui and I created the Practice Portuguese podcast in 2013 – to provide spoken dialogues and transcriptions, so learners like us can immerse ourselves in Continental Portuguese.
