Lesson 14 - Portuguese With Carla Podcast

Lesson 14 – Portuguese With Carla Podcast

 

Are you ready to play a game with us?

Often, a major problem when learning a language is not the acquisition but the retention. How to make words and expressions stick? In Lesson 14 of our European Portuguese Podcast, we teach you a fun game to help you remember Portuguese without the need of boring and seemingly infinite lists of words.

Enjoy

 

Open the tab bellow only if you’re struggling to remember most words hinted at on the podcast. Getting the answers without further help will help you “burn” them in your memory much more effectively.

Bear in mind that the words are not in the order they are mentioned, so it will still be somewhat of a challenge to pick the right one.

    Dear Marlo, Carla, that was a great idea you had for this episode! A fun and entertaining – also challenging – way to recap and brush up on a good chunk of words that you have been using thus far. Very enjoyable, kept laughing like an idiot every time it became apparent that, once again, Carla was of course going to leave the right answer at the end :). I thought it was an exercise in reverse psychology! Anyway, I even got quite a few of them right – ATUM!!! – and the ones I didn’t it was mostly because I’m lazy and haven’t quite managed yet to catch up with all the vocabulary I’ve logged in my trusty little notebook. So yeah, I think it makes perfect sense to have one of these episodes from time to time. Plus, you wouldn’t want Marlon’s stellar audio production values – nice game show effect on the microphone, btw – to go to waste, surely 🙂

    Who’s Marlo?! Damn it, meant MarloN, of course.
