Portuguese Language Study Group

No sábado passado, lemos um artigo sobre as razões para a ótima audiência para da propaganda eleitoral na TV no Brasil .  Aprendemos que o IBOPE é o Instituto Brasileiro de Opinião Pública e Estatística.  Nós aprendemos que a frase "fazer questão" pode significar "to insist on doing something i.e. a favor for someone as well as to make a point to do something". 

Também ouvimos a música de Tom Jobim "Aula de Matemática".  Obrigado a Lee e Andy para nosso material de estudo.

No próximo sábado vamos se reunir a Byerlys em St. Louis Park.  Susan vai levar a música e eu vou levar a leitura. Por favor, junte-se a nós para uma oportunidade de melhorar o seu Português.

Last Saturday we read an article about the reasons for the large viewership watching the electoral advertising on TV in Brazil.   We learned that IBOPE is the Brazilian institute of Public Opinion and Statistics.  We also learned that the phrase "fazer questão" can mean to insist on doing something i.e. a favor for someone as well as to make a point to do something.

We also listened to a song by Tom Jobim "Aula de Matemática".  Thanks to Lee and Andy for bringing our study material.

Next Saturday we will meet at Byerlys in St. Louis Park.  Susan will bring the music and I the reading.  Please join us for an opportunity to improve your Portuguese.

Até lá.

    My wife and I are planning to go to Brazil in February for two weeks and we would like to learn to speak Portuguese. Is this group open to beginners to start learning?

    Hi Seth, it wouldn't be an issue at all if you'd like to attend simply to listen.

    I speak proficient Spanish and will start to learn Portuguese to complement it.

    I would not expect any special accommodation--just the chance to observe.

    Would it be an issue for someone who is just starting to learn Portuguese to attend to simply listen to the language and get used to the sound of it?
