When you are learning a language, pronunciation and melody can play a big part in the effectiveness of your communication. In this workshop participants are invited to experiment with the pronunciation and intonation of simple everyday words and sentences through activities and games. This will lead them to grasp the sounds, tonality and melody of Brazilian Portuguese in a fun and engaging way. No previous experience required but it will be helpful for learners of Portuguese as a foreign language.
Portuguese is spoken by more than 250 million people in the world and will soon be added to the leaving certificate as a curriculum subject as a heritage language due to the number of Brazilians now living in Ireland.
Is your partner  Brazilian Portuguese speaker? Does she/he want to help you out learning the language? We may have just the right workshop! Check this out
