Cristiano Ronaldo: Assim Nasce Um Campeão!

Cristiano Ronaldo: A Champion is Born!

April 6, 2018

“Ronaldo” is one of the first names that pop up when discussing Portugal, wherever you are in the world. Regarded as one of the most important football/soccer players of all time, he’s earned his place as not only a top Portuguese celebrity, but also as an important symbol of the country. Neither Rui nor Joel are fans of the ol’ sportsball, which made exploring the new vocabulary and expressions even more interesting! (Cue the hate mail, “futebol” purists!).

Artigo 23 – António Guterres, A Unir Nações

António Guterres, Uniting Nations

November 14, 2016

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!

Portugal Campeão (Part 2)

August 3, 2016

In this second half of “Portugal Campeão“, we continue to celebrate Portugal’s futebol victory!

Just like the last few episodes, we discuss vocabulary and grammar useful in every day life, even if (like us) you don’t follow sports! Make sure to listen until the end where Rui gets a little bit hyper… and musical! (Too much galão, perhaps?)

Portugal Campeão (Part 1)

Portugal the Champions (Part 1)

July 17, 2016

We celebrate Portugal’s futebol victory with a play-by-play of how it all went down, including tons of useful expressions and vocabulary, soccer/football related and otherwise.

With Rui and Joel’s lack of sports knowledge (sports experts, you’ve been warned), we hope this episode is as educational as it is wacky!

Show up for the multiple musical outbursts, stay for the in-depth analysis of Ronaldo and his pet moth!
