Portuguese Alphabet

By learning the Portuguese alphabet, you will manage to start figuring out how words are pronounced. So this is my suggestion to start:

  • THE PORTUGUESE ALPHABET

  • Useful phrases and vocabulary in Portuguese

    Here you can find some videos that will help to start to build a basic vocabulary and understand a little more about pronounciation.

  • GREETINGS
  • COURTESY
  • ASK FOR INFORMATION
  • EXPRESS FEELINGS
  • COUNTRIES AND NATIONALITIES
  • PROFESSIONS
  • CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES
  • COLORS
  • DAYS OF THE WEEK
  • TELLING THE TIME

  • Portuguese Lessons

    Now that you already learned some fundamentals of pronunciation and some useful vocabulary, it's time to start to understand the Portuguese grammar. Learning about grammar will give you insight into the way the Portuguese language works. In this series you can see some basic concepts:

  • SUBJECT PRONOUNS
  • REGULAR VERBS (PRESENT TENSE) - Part I
  • REGULAR VERBS (PRESENT TENSE) - Part II
  • SOME IRREGULAR VERBS (PRESENT TENSE)
  • NEGATIVES
  • INTERROGATIVES
  • DEFINITE AND INDEFINITE ARTICLES
  • CARDINAL AND ORDINAL NUMBERS
  • PLURAL
  • FEMININE AND MASCULINE
  • DEMONSTRATIVE PRONOUNS
  • POSSESSIVE PRONOUNS
  • VERBS: SIMPLE PAST
  • VERBS: FUTURE
  • PREPOSITIONS [1]
  • PREPOSITIONS [2]

  • After these basic concepts, you can improve your skills by reading the intermediate level articles in this English version of the blog. Click here to see some of them. Also you can try to read their respective Portuguese version.

    And a good exercise is trying these ideas for conversation exchange topics: Tópicos para conversação em português.
