Olá!

Bem vindos ao episódio 47 do Portuguese Lab Podcast.

Today you are going to listen to the second part of the story that started in last week's episode, the Story in Lusitania, in the Iberian Peninsula, in the year 142 before BC. And guess what, this is not the last part of the story!

This is still an episode for advanced learners, but, like I mentioned previously, it's still a good opportunity to expose yourself to the language even if you are a beginner, read the transcript and translation and learn a lot of new vocabulary.

The related resources also include questions about this story so be sure to download them. You'll hear it twice. Once at normal speed and a second time slower.

Olá!

Bem vindos ao episódio 42 do Portuguese Lab Podcast.

We are going back to basics in this episode. 
If you are a true beginner, this means, if you are just starting to learn the language from scratch, then this will give you a lot of opportunities to practice basic verbs and basic sentence structures. 
There will be no English translations in this (audio) episode, this way you can also practice comprehension with this same file (you can read the translation in the PDF).
I will focus on the personal pronouns eu (I) and tu (you, singular informal) and verbs in the present tense. For each group of sentences I'll start by identifying the main verb in the infinitive.

In this episode:

  • personal pronouns: eu / tu
  • verbs: almoçar / comprar / querer
