Língua da Gente: Mobile Language Learning for Portuguese

Língua da Gente: Mobile Language Learning for Portuguese

Língua da Gente is a Portuguese language learning podcast series written and hosted by Professor Orlando Kelm from the University of Texas. The podcast lessons present the Portuguese language within the context of everyday speech and culture, and serve three levels of language learners: beginning, elementary, and intermediate. Each lesson consists of a brief dialog, a line-by-line English translation, in-depth analysis of the pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and cultural content in the lesson, a discussion blog for comments and questions, and a dialog transcript. The podcasts are available on the Língua da Gente website and on iTunes, and additional lesson materials and activities are available for online and mobile use through a subscription from OpenLanguage.com. The lessons may be used together as a stand-alone course or serve as supplemental resources for any organized course. All content carries a Creative Commons license so that teachers can adapt it to fit students’ needs.
