Brazilpod Update: New Portuguese Website Available Now
Posted: July 2, 2014
This summer, soccer fans the world over are enjoying o jogo bonito--that's Portuguese for "the beautiful game."
In honor of the 2014 World Cup and in preparation for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, COERLL is launching an exciting Portuguese podcast series called Língua de gente ('language of the people'). Each lesson includes a brief dialogue based on a common situation that you are likely to encounter in the Lusophone world.
In addition to the free podcast lessons, COERLL is partnering with OpenLanguage.com to provide Língua da gente materials for the tablet or mobile device. The COERLL lessons are free, but for a subscription to OpenLanguage.com, learners will receive additional resources for mobile learning (e.g., lesson exercises and flashcards).
