10-step Portuguese (BR) for beginners (and intermediates)
Learn Brazilian Portuguese in a way you haven’t seen before
There are many reasons to learn a language like Portuguese:
- When you’re with Brazilians you can understand parts of what people speak
- You can consume a whole new world of media and culture
- You can find your way around on your next holiday and not feel completely lost.
- You can train your brain and feel how it works and gets better at language
- It’s something fun and interactive to do, and it’s not that hard with our technology and methods.
Maybe you have already tried to learn Portuguese or another language, but had some problems. For example:
- You studied for years, but when you try to speak, you feel blocked,
- When you try to listen to native speakers, they just speak too fast and you can’t understand a thing,
- You tried to have conversations, but you were constantly out of words,
- You couldn’t find authentic content that was enjoyable to listen to,
- You didn’t know where to get started, and then didn’t do anything at all,
There’s good news for you: it’s not your fault.
I want to introduce you to a new method, that you will understand and can even continue by yourself afterwards.
When learning in a traditional classroom, you follow a static textbook, learn some complicated grammar by heart and speak a few sentences every now and then.
However, you are never really interacting with the language!
So when you try to have a conversation with a native speaker, you have absolutely no idea what to do. You run out of words, only draw blanks, and you can’t understand a single thing of what’s going on.
Hi, my name is Vitor and this is my course.
I’m a Brazilian polyglot. I’ve learned to speak five languages fluently and have worked as an English and Spanish teacher and also as a language mentor.
But my language learning also didn’t start so well. I have learned this the hard way, but fell in love with it. And now I want to share it with others.
Before I started learning languages on my own, I studied English for 4 years in a school here in Brazil. I was a dedicated student, had good grades and participated a lot during the lessons.
Then when I met a native speaker for the first time, it was simply terrifying. I was completely frozen. I couldn’t say a word. I couldn’t understand anything.
It felt like I wasted so much time and money. So I stopped.
Then, I started to use English in my life, even though I wasn’t very comfortable with it yet. I started watching videos, reading forums and following memes.
I was shocked! After a while of doing that, my comprehension level sky-rocketed and so did my ability to speak.
The reason? I was interacting with REAL language in the REAL world!
After that, I wanted to understand what happened with me and started to learn more about language learning. Now I speak five languages fluently, and I’m here to tell you that there’s a better way to learn Portuguese.
And I want to make it accessible to everyone. I wanted to create something that I would love to have if I would start learning Portuguese myself.
How can this course help you learn real Portuguese?
My secret is listening to native speakers with clear exercises, and at the end have a real conversation to learn personalised vocabulary. It’s all included in this course.
1. Develop listening skills by listening
No textbook dialogue: you will listen to Brazilians speak as they speak in real life. You practice with native speed from day one, so that you have no surprises when you meet other speakers!
2. A transcript of the audio
You can listen to the language more comfortably, even if you are a beginner. It will help you recognise every single word that is said, and see the relationship between the written and spoken language
3. An English Translation
You’ll be listening to the same text multiple times, and in that way start recognising loads of words. The transcript will guarantee your complete understanding and give you the satisfaction of interacting with real language from early on.
4. Lingophant flashcards with native audio
We have picked useful phrases from each video and created flashcards. Those phrases will help you take home a bunch of phrases and structures, without having to learn complicated grammar. You’ll train active recall for these phrases and can build pronunciation right from the start.
5. Your first conversation with other learners and me.
Our first conversation will be a group conversation. You don’t need to know any Portuguese to participate: while the conversation takes place, you just ask how to say things and we will record the phrases for you using the Lingophant app.
6. Have your first conversation with a native speaker (me!)
By the end of the course, you’ll have your first conversation with a native speaker! Don’t worry, the course will prepare you to do so. You will be surprised by how well you can already speak after just one month! This constantly learning what you need to start speaking with people right away!
7. Step by step guides for busy people
Over a month, we will send you ten emails with clear instructions. You’ll receive a checklist along with the video that shows you exactly what to do. Every email will cost you around 30 minutes. You can simply follow the steps and it’s done.
