Working Portuguese

Welcome to Working Portuguese.  First of all, let’s give you the powerpoint slides that go with each of our lessons.

And here is a document with all of the dialogues that we will ask you to memorize and record.  Please send your recordings as an attachment to my email address: orkelm@austin.utexas.edu.

We’ll kind of make this our home base for the class.

    Hi Orlando, I didn’t really find anything particularly confusing. Having already learned Spanish has helped me a lot with recognizing the structure so for now it seems like I need to work more on pronunciation and remembering new vocabulary. Having different forms of words depending on the gender of the speaker is definitely new, and I’m sure I will have more questions as we move along!
