In this audio lesson, our characters get a surprise visit at the door. You will learn how to handle the delivery man (in a linguistic sense of course) in European Portuguese. Our friend Miguel is also back on this episode to help us out.
We are back with a new lesson. This one starts a series of podcasts where the characters stay in their home. This will allow us to teach you specific vocabulary and homely expressions. Don’t forget to look up the extras bellow and do the exercises.
Lesson 33 is a little different. We give our characters a day off and teach you some colloquial European Portuguese with the sound of music. That’s right, get ready to sing along with us!
Let’s vary things a little. In podcast 32 we guide you through a more formal conversation. Specifically, at a shop counter, ordering snails. That’s probably in the top 10 things to learn before traveling to Portugal. 🙂
We’ve never done a “get directions to somewhere” episode. But that’s an important skill to have to anyone venturing into European Portuguese for the first time, so here it goes…
Podcast 30 brings you a typical conversation between two European Portuguese speakers in the summer months, i.e. where to get snails from. Should they go to the tavern or the snail house. Find out after the break…
In our European Portuguese lesson this week, the 29th, our characters are presented with a typical and delicious, if you ask me, Portuguese meal: “Polvo à lagareiro”. If you enjoy fish, proceed. Oh, by the way, you’ll also learn what it means to, linguistically, eat an ox.
After an exhaustive day of traveling, our two fictitious European Portuguese speaking characters are ready for starving. Among some interesting new expressions, we start to introduce Angolan words that are now a days essential in European Portuguese.
Lesson 27, more European Portuguese. Specifically, what to say when your flight is forced to do an emergency landing. Well, a little bit more perhaps…ok, a lot more!
In podcast, or lesson 26 we get bad news in the plane. Among many other things you will learn the European Portuguese recipe to cure any ailment and how to say “baldy”!
There’s also loads of actually useful language tips.
