In Brazil, the term língua da gente (literally 'language of the people') refers to the way that people actually talk in everyday speech. And that, in essence, is the object behind this series. We hope to provide practical lessons that demonstrate how people really speak, and we do this by presenting brief, slice-of-life dialogs, which focus on some daily situation, scenario, or task that we encounter every day.

Incredible resource

I'm an American living in Brazil, and this podcast is an unbelievable resource. This happens to me all the time: I listen to an episode, and that same day I hear native speakers using some of the new vocabulary I've just learned. The content of these episodes is incredibly useful in daily Brazilian life. I live in a smallish city in Mato Grosso do Sul where not many people speak English, and this podcast has helped me SO much to communicate with neighbors, friends, my kids' teachers, etc. I'm so grateful!!

I love you Orlando

Please come back for more! I work in a laboratory and I just listen to this podcast and you have no idea how much portuguese I have learned so far thanks to you! I love your explanations, and how funny some of the dialogues are and how you bring in a native speaker in every episode to explain the Brazilian culture and their use of language. I am not only learning the language but also the culture and that’s how it’s supposed to be!!! Thank you sooooo much for helping me so much and I hope that you guys come back for more <3
