At first I didn't. But then new cousins came into my life, and they're from Rio, and they speak Portuguese. Now I want to live and work there.
I stayed in Rio w/my new family for 10 days earlier this year, Recreio de Bandeirantes. Got to ride in the front seat while they drove around - had my eyes closed a lot! Uau! Want to go back!
Well, I've watched all of the episodes of Avenida Brasil, am using Rosetta Stone to learn, and frequently misspeak when I talk to my new cousins! I'd say my level is probably advanced beginner, being able to understand more then I can actually put into sentences. But that doesn't stop me from trying!!
Chicago - south side!
Hi, originally from Kansas, living in Chicago. Wanna move to Rio ... yesterday!
If you want immersion-type exposure, this is the place to be! Bring your enthusiasm and your desire to communicate. You'll be glad you did
