Language Learning, Portuguese (Brazilian)

3rd week of Brazilian Portuguese – Goal reached! w/ Dani Russo

You can read the post about my first week where I talk about this project and where I give a lot of resources. You can also read this page where I describe my approach, and this other page with a list of language workouts.

And you can read about week 2 here.

There’s nothing truly interesting this week. I reached my goal on Monday. I’m learning more, little by little, day after day.

 

Day 15 – 11/06/17

20 min – Damon and Jo, without subtitles (8 min), and Dani Russo (12 min). Goal reached! I can understand more than 75% of Dani Russo’s videos.

Day 16 – 11/07/17

30 min – Fit couch potato with Dani Russo (16 min) and Damon and Jo (14 min). **from now on, if I just write “Damon and Jo” it means “Damon and Jo without subtitles”**

Almost rest – just watched a video (Dani Russo – to’ ficando muito loco com issa menina), and listened to some Brazilian trap and rap.

Mandume – Emicida – Lyrics (with Spanish translation)

Cheguei (Ruxell remix) – Ludmilla

 

Like week 1 & 2, I also did freestyle everyday: I wrote a few lines, played with the vocabulary I knew, and came up with rhymes. It never takes me more than a couple of minutes per day.

 

Time spent

Day 15 – 20 min

Day 16 – 30 min

Day 17 – 45 min

Day 18 – 1h12

Day 19 – 30 min

Day 20 – 33 min

Day 21 – ~0 min

Total: 3h50

 

What’s next?

This is the last post about my Brazilian chronicles. I’m going to keep this pace. Watching a few videos everyday, listening to Brazilian music. And in a few weeks (or months, we’ll see!), I’ll start learning German with this same approach.
