Starting off on the right foot
If there is any language skill often neglected by language learners, it’s pronunciation. Yet, pronunciation does matter – it is decisive to whether or not you get past the fluency threshold and to how quickly you achieve that milestone.
The clearer your pronunciation is, the more confident you’ll feel speaking Portuguese with others and the better you’ll get at it. It’s a virtuous circle!
To improve your pronunciation you need to dive into the Portuguese sound system and learn the basic sounds. You want to drill them until they become second nature to you. That’s what Sounds of Portuguese is all about.
After this course, you’ll have built a solid foundation to confidently speak crystal clear Portuguese.
No stone left unturned
Hear from my students
This course was a game-changer for me. I trust my pronunciation better these days and feel more confident when I speak Portuguese. Pedro has it right. Pronunciation is a physical thing and one needs to drill those sound bites to develop enough muscle memory. Only then will you start hitting the right notes with less effort. It’s well worth it. Buy it.
Before I bought this course I couldn’t really hear the sounds of this language, let alone reproduce them. I clearly see that in hindsight. Like with a radio device, you’ve got to fine-tune it into the right frequencies to get a cleaner signal. Thanks to Sounds of Portuguese, I am now more in tune with Portuguese pronunciation and feel much more comfortable speaking it.
