Na praia na Fortaleza, Brasil

Welcome to our Portuguese course for beginners. The best thing right here would be to simply start talking in Portuguese by reading aloud to ourselves the following dialogue. Doing so, don't be too afraid with your pronunciation. We will later in this lesson get back to teaching you how to pronounce every single Portuguese sound correctly.
